I am following this article on installing the oracle client RPMs on a CentOs 6.x server using yum localinstall.for some reason yum cannot open the RPMs – and I am at a loss as to what the next step should be.
[me@somewhere oracle-install-files]$ ls -l total 24 -rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 5307 Feb 12 11:35 oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-188.8.131.52.0-1.x86_64.rpm -rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 5307 Feb 12 11:35 oracle-instantclient11.2-devel-184.108.40.206.0-1.x86_64.rpm -rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 5307 Feb 12 11:35 oracle-instantclient11.2-sqlplus-220.127.116.11.0-1.x86_64.rpm [me@somewhere oracle-install-files]$ sudo yum localinstall oracle* --nogpgcheck Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security Setting up Local Package Process Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-18.104.22.168.0-1.x86_64.rpm. Skipping. Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-devel-22.214.171.124.0-1.x86_64.rpm. Skipping. Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-sqlplus-126.96.36.199.0-1.x86_64.rpm. Skipping. Nothing to do
I tried pathing them out individually like this:
sudo yum localinstall oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-188.8.131.52.0-1.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck
similar error (but only for the individual rpms).
well.. …you canot wghet these files directly. They need to be “approved”
