I have a Solaris background, and I am new in RHEL, and I want to install Oracle 11g on it.

I downloaded Oracle documentation, that illustrate how to install it for RHEL 6.

The following or later version of packages for Oracle Linux 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 must be installed:

binutils-2.20.51.0.2-5.11.el6 (x86_64)
compat-libcap1-1.10-1 (x86_64)
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-69.el6 (x86_64)
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-69.el6.i686
gcc-4.4.4-13.el6 (x86_64)
gcc-c++-4.4.4-13.el6 (x86_64)
glibc-2.12-1.7.el6 (i686)
glibc-2.12-1.7.el6 (x86_64)
glibc-devel-2.12-1.7.el6 (x86_64)
glibc-devel-2.12-1.7.el6.i686
ksh
libgcc-4.4.4-13.el6 (i686)
libgcc-4.4.4-13.el6 (x86_64)
libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6 (x86_64)
libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686
11
libstdc++-devel-4.4.4-13.el6 (x86_64)
libstdc++-devel-4.4.4-13.el6.i686
libaio-0.3.107-10.el6 (x86_64)
libaio-0.3.107-10.el6.i686
libaio-devel-0.3.107-10.el6 (x86_64)
libaio-devel-0.3.107-10.el6.i686
make-3.81-19.el6
sysstat-9.0.4-11.el6 (x86_64)

I tried to install each package. I download this package: compat-libcap1-1.10-1.src.rpm

rpm -i compat-libcap1-1.10-1.src.rpm

and I got this output:

warning: compat-libcap1-1.10-1.src.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID c105b9de: NOKEY

And someone advice me to solve this problem:

    # yum install mock

and create the ‘mockbuild’ user

    # useradd -s /sbin/nologin mockbuild

When I tried to use:

yum install mock

I got this output:

Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
Setting up Install Process
No package mock available.
Error: Nothing to do

I can't use any one of these commands yum and rpm

You shouldn't be trying to install -src packages (those contain source code you need to build), try with normal ones (without the -src tag). –  Mat Mar 25 '13 at 10:33

I have successfully installed oracle 11g (few times) using http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g/oracle-db-11gr2-installation-on-oracle-linux-6.php guide.

I have installed on CentOS 6.x, RHEL 6.x

When I was installing oracle 11g on CentOS there was a warning about some packages not installed. But I have ignored the warning and all things are fine. Oracle 11g can't recognise new packages so you can just ignore when the warning comes.
