Installing on Fedora 3 is not that easy but possible: I did it...
First: the jdk included with Oracle will not work
Second: go to oracle-base.com and follow the instructions for Fedora
Third: You will have an easier time if you use 184.108.40.206
Fourth: Oracle 9i CANNOT be linked with the libraries used by gcc 3.4
I didn't try (because it will not work) to use gcc 3.3 through the
compat libraries from Fedora 3. Instead I used gcc 2.96 through
the compat libraries from Fedora 2. You will also need the compat-db
package for the Apache 1 web server included in Oracle. Since the
compat-db from Fedora Core 2 had dependency problems I installed
the one from Core 3.
Fifth: Be sure to apply the patches as told in oracle-base. In
particular the one related to libc-wait. Otherwise the net config
will fail (stinking Java rides again)
Sixth: I had problem when typing passwords in the manager since it only
took the first character in the password. But in another box I didn't
had that problem. Difference could be that the second box was running
xfce instead of gnome.
Seventh: Before installation be sure to bookmark http://oracle-base.com
and http://puschitz.com in your browser since they have looooots of tips
about using oracle on Linux.
