I noticed that Oracle database 19.3 was available to download so I installed it on a Linux VM under VirtualBox.
I cloned my base Oracle Linux 7 VM and did a yum -y update to get it up to the latest Linux version.
I installed the preinstall RPM:
yum install oracle-database-preinstall-19c
Created the Oracle home, set some variables, and disabled the firewall.
mkdir -p /home/oracle/product/db/19.0.0
chgrp oinstall /home/oracle/product/db/19.0.0
[root@ora19 ~]# systemctl stop firewalld
[root@ora19 ~]# systemctl disable firewalld
Edited my .bashrc
Unzipped the downloaded file LINUX.X64_193000_db_home.zip in my ORACLE_HOME. Then I ran runInstaller from the ORACLE_HOME through MobaXterm. For some reason this decided to put the install window overlapping my two screens so I couldn’t tell what I was typing, and it didn’t allow me to move it. Fun times.
It seemed to hang on the last step, but it eventually finished. The process named ora_mz00_orcl was spinning on the CPU for part of the time that it seemed hung. I guess it was 5 or 10 minutes, but I didn’t time it.
Seems to be up and working:
