Oracle 11g Database installation

It was from a long time since  i was planning to install and  work on Oracle 11g.

I downloaded below mentioned 2 zip files from oracle website :-

1. linux_11gR2_database_1of2.zip
2. linux_11gR2_database_2of2.zip

The base operating system that i had used was RHEL 4.0

Now all basic steps i.e. file changes,kernel parameters, rpm required are mentioned in oracle documentation and the documentation is also available in the software that we just extracted.

Installation went well, however it took some time to install since my machine has only 2 GB ram and i allocated 512 MB to vmware.

I will  post some screenshots here that i could capture during this installation.


This is a new screen that we get in 11g, i chose Server Class here


Select database type Single node or RAC


Select Language , i selected english


Database edition 



File system type, local or ASM


Database type General or Datawarehousing


Here we come across one of the new feature Automatic Memory Management, we will discuss this further in next post



Directory location




Option to enable automatic backups




After all options are complete, installation starts




So Oracle database 11g is installed now, and time to explore new features :-)
