    Default Installing Oracle XE database on OpenSUSE 12.3

    Hello Everybody,

    I'm trying to install Oracle XE database on Opensuse 12.3 OS. I've a 32 bit desktop. I was able to google search and download the .deb package for Oracle XE version 10g. Thanks to some of the other threads in this forum I was able to convert the .deb to a .rpm package using the 'alien' command.

    Now when I try to install the rpm package, I get some dependency errors. Can someone please guide me as to how I can download the missing libraries shown below? I see newer versions of some of these libraries under /usr/lib (example libc.so.2, etc).

    Thanks.

    Hi
    10g is too old for 12.3 I would imagine you need to install 11g.
    I don't think alien would work in this case either. Else install a
    supported OS in a VM for 10g?

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, Oracle website has LINUX download for 11g but that is only for a 64 bit processor. They have discontinued support for the 32 bit processor on LINUX OS. I was trying to see if I could do a VM of 64 bit on a 32 bit machine but I found out from VMware website that this is not possible.

    Can you please suggest/point out to how I can physically upgrade my existing 32 bit processor to a 64 bit processor, if that is at all possible?

    Basically I want to practice working with Oracle DB in a LINUX environment. I'm comfortable using Oracle on a Windows OS.

    Hi
    Can you post the output from the following command;
    Code:
    lscpu

    It is possible, but you'll almost certainly have the replace the motherboard - in which case it's worthwhile considering
    replacing the whole box depending on what other hardware you have.

    You first want to exclude the possibility of your existing processor support 64-bit, which can ascertained (as malcolm
    has suggested) using `lscpu'.

    Here is the lscpu output:

    Going back to my very first post in this thread, is there a way I could download the 13 missing libraries shown in the post? That way I could still give it a shot and try to get Oracle 10g to work.

    I also read elsewhere that creating a soft link to the missing old libraries using the current library version sometimes helps. I tried it out with one of them but to no avail.

    Code:
    ln -s libc.so.2 libc.so.1
