Sometime ago I run in some problems during the installation of Oracle WebCache Standalone on an Redhat 4 x86_64 system. All prerequirements were made, the Oracle Universal Installer didn't complain anything, but during the link process following error message came up:

  • error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After some investigations my ex-colleague from Trivadis (Engelbert Wystrach) and me came to following solution:

  • create as root user following two files in the directory /usr/bin
  • gcc296
    exec /usr/bin/gcc32 -m32 -static-libgcc -B /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/ $*
  • g++296
    exec /usr/bin/g++32 -m32 -static-libgcc -B /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/ $*
  • execute as root following commands:
    cd /usr/bin
    mv gcc
    mv g++
    ln -s /usr/bin/gcc296 /usr/bin/gcc
    ln -s /usr/bin/g++296 /usr/bin/g++
After you made this changes, start the Oracle Universal Installer once again and install the Oracle WebCache Standalone. This error occurs only on Redhat 64bit systems :-(
