Installing Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (184.108.40.206) on Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 SPARC:
I just finished installing Oracle database 11g Release 2 (220.127.116.11) on Oracle Solaris 11 and from what I experienced, Oracle Solaris 11 has a minimal package prerequisite requirement in order to install Oracle database 11g Release 2 (18.104.22.168) on Oracle Solaris 11. Most of the requirements from Solaris 10 has been integrated or consolidated into other packages which has reduced number of prerequisite packages needed in order to install Oracle database 11g Release 2 (22.214.171.124) on Solaris 11 11/11. Here is what I experienced:
In order for remote DISPLAY to work on S11, you will need the following package: SUNWxwplt
root@s11_sparc# pkg install pkg://solaris/compatibility/packages/SUNWxwplt
You can now set the DISPLAY variable for the user installing Oracle database.
Regarding dependency on Motif and Xt libraries, you can set the toolkit as environment variable for the user installing the oracle database:
$ export AWT_TOOLKIT=XToolkit
(For more info on XToolkit, refer: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/guide/awt/1.5/xawt.html)
Thats it! Now you should be able to proceed with Oracle database 11g Release 2 (126.96.36.199) installation on Solaris 11 server by running runInstaller.
Note: Please refer to Oracle Documentation for complete instructions and requirements. I have only listed information with respect to package prerequisite requirement.
