Installing Oracle DB 12c in Linux OEL6 (In One Sitting)

Because I will have to do this again in no time, here I jot down the quickest way for me to install 12c.  This is the usual series of following steps, running into an error, searching for a fix, lather, rinse repeat.

Step One – Install oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall.

Source –

Step Two – …gets us all the way here – [FATAL] PRVF-0002 : Could not retrieve local nodename

Source –

Step Three –  … cannot write oradata change to /home/oracle/oradata

Source –

Step Four – Swapfile … I used 10000

Source –


Step Five – Then I see installer is bent on putting oradata directory in /home.  Just revise to suit your install.
