    Gcc not found


    Iím a linux newbie.
    I installed ORACLE LINUX Release 4 update 7.
    Then, I started to install the ORACLE 10g software.
    However, the ORACLE DATABASE software complained that the O/S was missing gcc (gcc not found).

    I did not understand how to configure Ö install gcc.
    I found a hint from LINUX Forum and I executed:
    % yum install gcc
    The output:
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update
    Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update

    Can someone please help?
    Thanks,
    Edwin

    Hello and Welcome!

    Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update
    After installing the OS, did you setup your software repos?
    This page gives info on doing so.

    I'm not overly familiar with Oracle, so I don't have any specifics to pass along.
    But the page that I linked should point you in the right direction.
    Provided you have a subscription with Oracle, all software should be available for download.

    Jay,
    I contact ORACLE Support Tech and asked CSI number.
    Eventually, I will need to purchase CSI number (License Oracle).
    There is no way, I can continue to build and install the ORACLE database on my machine due to O/S.
    Did you know any LINUX O/S that compatible with Oracle 10g database?
    Many thanks,
    Edwin

    Here are a few alternatives that you might want to look into.

    *EDIT*
    I just want to clarify...
    There is no way, I can continue to build and install the ORACLE database on my machine due to O/S.
    Did you know any LINUX O/S that compatible with Oracle 10g database?
    Oracle DB will run on most modern distros, without to much of a problem.
    Your issue isn't OS compatibility, it's the lack of a paid subscription.
    CentOS or Scientific Linux are both RH clones, so should do nicely for you.
    You might want to try one of those, and then look through the link I posted above for some DB software choices.
