This guide provides instructions to install and configure the Oracle8 Server on Linux-specific systems. This guide supplements information found in the Oracle8 and Oracle8 Enterprise Edition Documentation Set.


This document is intended for anyone responsible for creating a basic Oracle8 Server installation on a Linux system.

Oracle8 and Oracle8 Enterprise Edition

Unless noted otherwise, features and functionality described in this document are common to both Oracle8 and Oracle8 Enterprise Edition.

Products available with the Oracle8 Enterprise Edition only are listed in the Release Notes.

Typographic Conventions



Monospace type indicates UNIX commands, directory names, pathnames, and filenames.


brackets [ ]


Words enclosed in brackets indicate key names (for example, Press [Return]). Note that brackets have a different meaning when used in command syntax.




Italic type indicates a variable, including variable portions of filenames, or emphasis.




Uppercase letters indicate Structured Query Language (SQL) commands, initialization parameters, or environment variables.


Because UNIX is case-sensitive, conventions in this document may differ from those used in Oracle product documentation.

Command Syntax

Command syntax appears in monospace font. The following conventions apply to command syntax:

backslash \


A backslash indicates a command that is too long to fit on a single line. Enter the line as printed (with a backslash) or enter it as a single line without a backslash:
dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s6 of=/dev/rst0 bs=10b \


braces { }


Braces indicate required items: .DEFINE {macro1}


brackets [ ]


Brackets indicate optional items: cvtcrt termname [outfile]

Note that brackets have a different meaning when used in regular text.


ellipses ...


Ellipses indicate an arbitrary number of similar items:
CHKVAL fieldname value1 value2 ... valueN




Italic type indicates a variable. Substitute a value for the variable: library_name
