I just have time to install Oracle Enterprise Linux (OLE) on VMWare. The first error I encountered after trying to login into the 11g (188.8.131.52) database is this –
[oracle@oralnx1 ~]$ sqlplus / as sysdba sqlplus: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/oracle/product/11.1.0/db_1/lib/libnnz11.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied.
Well, I guess this is not a new error. I googled for it and found the answer on Ravi’s blog (Thanks!!!). As Metalink note 454196.1 says, it is a bug due to more aggressive way that SELinux policies are enforced in RHEL 5 and OEL 5. The fix is to make SELinux is running in “Permissive” mode instead of its default “enforcing” mode. The syntax is provided in Metalink document.
