Poor Yum Repo: OracleLinux6

I’m now working on an Oracle Linux 6U1 x64 box, planning to inst new 11R2 image.

Problem hit here.

we can see that glibc.i686 <tip: just add arch. tag to install related pkg.> cannot be resolved  for glibc-common label check failure.

it’s funny but not worse, ORCL even doesn’t provide glibc-common.i686 package…

It should be a bug here….


1. pull glibc package from weburl glibc-2.12-1.25.el6.i686.rpm.
2. # yum localinstall glibc-2.12-1.25.el6.i686.rpm
3. # yum install unixODBC-devel unixODBC-devel.i686
4. continue…

Poor Yum repo…especially on x64 platform day’s, mixing with i686 libs.

where is the whereis

Today when I’m applying some scripts on Solaris 11Express nodes, a interesting error comeup,

As on Solaris 10, we use cmd whereis(/usr/ucb/whereis) as a standard component.
(On Linux, it’s also a part of the util-linux-ng package )

Solaris 11X doesn’t include this command in default set, so turn to documents for help:

<Oracle Solaris 11 ISV Adoption Guide>

Very lucky the command whereis is the rest  for kept in compatibility/ucb package as optional.
But it’s no longer suggested to use such cmds in further SOLs, I finally gave up refresh the toolkits.

Oracle Solaris 11 ISV Adoption Guide
Solaris 11 Express Changes: Where is /usr/ucb ?
*this arc shows the discussion on some port specific /usr/ucb commands,
the abandon of those codes speed up the far and away of those BSD like code.

From this point, SOL’s running faster than Linux….

Double check the table dba_profiles, and to change password_life_time parameter if necessary
