Yum (public) to update Oracle Linux #Oracle #IDM

Updating Oracle Enterprise Linux for Oracle Identity Management (Suite)

When installing Oracle Identity Management (Suite) on Oracle’s Enterprise Linux the easiest way to install the required packages is to use Oracle’s public Yum server,  http://public-yum.oracle.com.

There are a couple of quick steps to configure OEL to use Oracle’s Yum Server:

Note:  03 January 2013:  I found this blog which has updated information for OEL 6 …

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/servers-storage-admin/ginnydbinstallonlinux6-1845247.html

My instructions are somewhat outdated so YMMV:

  • cd /etc/yum.repos.d
  • wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el6.repo
  • Open the yum configuration file in a text editor
  • Locate the section in the file for the repository you plan to update from,  e.g. [el6_u2_base]
  • Change enabled=0 to enabled=1

Begin using yum, for example:

$ yum list

$ yum install firefox

Update OEL with packages for Oracle IDM:

Once you get Yum configured there are several packages that are required for Oracle Identity Management.  (Please note that this list changes and you should refer to the Oracle documentation for a complete and current list)

The first command to run is the following:

$ yum install oracle-validated

This will lay down the base packages required by Oracle DB.  Once they have finished installing you can run through the following list and make sure that you have all of the other packages required for OID or OIF.

To install or update the package you should run the following:

******** /// Updated 01/31/2012 ///*************************

# yum update
# yum install gcc
# yum install kernel-uek-devel  
* Note:  OEL 5 includes the uek (unbreakable kernel) and you need to update this package to be able to install VirtualBox Guest Additons

******** //// End of Update //// ********************************

********* //// Update 1/3/2013 ///// *******************

Be sure to check out:  https://blogs.oracle.com/wim/entry/setting_up_oracle_linux_6

for updates on OEL 6.

******** //// End of Update //// *******************************

$yum install [name of package]

I will typically *wildcard* the name to ensure that I am getting the latest version … bear in mind that this is me being lazy and not considered *best practice*.  You’ll end up with more packages installed than necessary.

$yum install glibc-*

… and so on and so on:
gcc-*
gcc-c++*
kernel-dev*
