Suse Linux SLES 10 SP 3 Oracle problems with missing compat libstdc++ package

If you are trying to install Oracle database product(s) on Suse Novell Linux 10 SP 3 you may experience problem with missing compat rpm package. Novell SLES actually provides all the necessary files via libstdc++33 howerver Oracle installation doesn’t really recognize it and reports missing compat libstdc++ package.

If you have installed you may remove the following packages running the following rpm command:

rpm -e libstdc++33
rpm -e libstdc++33-32bit

A good alternative is to find a compat libstdc++ package from SLES 10 SP 2 and it works perfectly. The compact-libstdc++ package you need is as follows:


Download it and install it running:

rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-5.0.7-22.2.x86_64.rpm
