For the most current information, please refer to :
(Doc ID 851598.1) Master Note of Linux OS Requirements for Database Server

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Standard Edition - Version 9.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3 [Release 9.2 to 11.2]
Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version 9.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3 [Release 9.2 to 11.2]
Generic Linux

Linux Itanium
IBM: Linux on System z
Linux x86

Purpose

This Master Note is intended to provide an index and references to the most frequently used My Oracle Support  articles with respect to Linux OS Requirements for Oracle Database Software Installation.

The vast majority of software installation and relinking problems on Linux are caused by missing OS requirements.

If you are encountering a software installation or relinking problem, it is vital that you ensure your OS meets all of the minimum requirements documented in the appropriate article below before creating a new SR.

Scope

Only Linux articles are referenced in this article.  For an "all-in-one" article that covers OS requirements for most major OS platforms, please refer to...

Document 169706.1  Oracle Database ... Installation and Configuration Requirements Quick Reference

Where a My Oracle Support article for a given version/platform is "Not available", you should refer to the Installation Guide and the article referenced above.
