The EnterpriseDB Platform

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

In this chapter, we'll cover the essentials of getting EnterpriseDB installed and take a brisk walk through all of the tools and other goodies that you get with the EnterpriseDB package.  We'll wrap up the chapter with an overview of the EnterpriseDB architecture and discuss how and where that architecture intersects, and where and how it differs, from the Oracle database architecture. 

Installing EnterpriseDB

In Chapter 1, we covered downloading the EnterpriseDB installation package.  Make sure you download the appropriate package for your platform.

EnterpriseDB is available for Linux, Windows and Solaris.  For Linux users, EnterpriseDB has been tested and is supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0, SUSE 9 and 10, Fedora 4 & 5 and Ubuntu 5 & 6.  I am running EnterpriseDB on Windows XP and Kubuntu 6.

Unless you are a developer or are curious about what may be coming in the near term, download the General Availability release.  If you are curious about new features, you can download any beta versions that may be available.

Minimum Requirements & Dependencies

For all platforms, the minimum requirements are:

* 600 MHz Processor

* 512 MB of RAM

* 512 MB of Hard Disk + space for data

Those are minimal stats.  I have run it on a machine very close to these specs and it ran fine.  If you are going to have many users, you may need additional memory and/or CPU.

If you are installing on Debian Linux (which I did), you will probably need to install some additional packages.  There is a readme file on the EnterpriseDB.com download site that gives additional details. 

The short story is that you will need to install ldso, libc5 and termcap.  You can download the .deb files from http://packages.ubuntu.com/breezy/oldlibs.

Once you have downloaded the .deb files, extract them (I used ARC) and run these commands to install them:

sudo dpkg -i ldso*.deb

sudo dpkg -i libc5*.deb

sudo dpkg -i termcap*.deb

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3

The Linux install package also has a script that checks your dependencies for you.  It is highly recommended that you run this script before installation.  The script name is:  pre-Install.sh.  pre-Install.sh MUST be run as root (SUDO in Debian/Ubuntu). 

If you get errors when you run the shell script, you can fix those or ask about it on the Installation forum at EnterpriseDB.com.  Once you have run it successfully, you will be ready to install the software.

To run the installer in Windows, you must have the "runas" feature enabled.  This is a service called "Secondary Logon".  During the installation, the installer will perform some functions as a new user that it creates.  If the "runas" service is disabled, the installation will fail.
