List of packages needed for Oracle 11gR2 (11.2.0.3) installation on Solaris 11

Installing Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.3) on Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 SPARC:

I just finished installing Oracle database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.3) 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 (11.2.0.3) 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 (11.2.0.3) 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 (11.2.0.3) 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.

Hi,

thank you for the package list.

Do you still need to install Sun Studio?

thanks,
Sar

Hi Sar,
Sun Studio is not needed for database installation.

Any chance of getting the actual Solaris 11 package names, instead of the Solaris 10 names? The SUNW... packages can't be installed on Solaris 11.

The SUNW... packages can be installed on Solaris 11 - the above example shown is on a Solaris 11 system where "pkg install" successfully installed the SUNW.... packages.

Instead of setting a variable each time you want to use OUI why not just install the following three packages?

pkg:/x11/session/xauth@1.0.6-0.175.0.0.0.0.1215
pkg:/x11/diagnostic/x11 \
-info- clients@7.6-0.175.0.0.0.0.1215
pkg:/library/motif@0.5.11-0.175.0.0.0.0.0

Hi,

Would you mind telling me which package group(s) were installed using the follwing command ?

Thanks a lot.

I am getting the following error 93% of the way through Disk1 of a Discoverer installation on Solaris 11 SPARC64: 'frmweb_install frmcmp_install frmcmpb_install frmctrl_install' of makefile
Oracle Support have told me that this is down to the absense of Motif 2.1
How do i install Motif 2.1 and where do i get it from? Would really appreciate your answer.

Hi Stephen,
You should be able to download/install Motif from pkg.oracle.com.
