If you run Oracle products on Oracle Linux 6 (or RHEL 6) on Intel-based hardware that supports the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), you may encounter illegal instruction errors (SIGILL) that prevent the correct operation of Oracle Database, Fusion Middleware and other applications (both Oracle and third party applications). It is recommended you install this glibc bug fix update: ELBA-2012-2019.
To verify whether your system supports AVX, look for avx in the output of:
# cat /proc/cpuinfoThe updated glibc RPM is available from ULN and from public-yum.oracle.com.
