Officially the Oracle AS 10.1.2 is not yet certified with SLES 10 and therefor Reports 10.1.2. is not certified. Nevertheless the Oracle AS 10.1.2 is installable on SLES 10, but if you try to run a Report you are receiving an error.

The corresponding logfile $ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/OC4J~OC4J_BI_Forms~default_island~1 shows following error stack:

  • java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError:
    /usr/X11R6/lib/ undefined symbol: _Xsetlocale

To resolve this problem perform following steps:

  1. su - root
  2. cd /usr/X11R6/lib
  3. mv -f
  4. ln -s

After that stop and restart the OC4J Instance OC4J_BI_Forms as oracle user:

  1. opmnctl stopproc process-type=OC4J_BI_Forms
  2. opmnctl startproc process-type=OC4J_BI_Forms
Now you can run Oracle Reports under SLES 10, but please note, that at the moment Oracle AS 10.1.2 is not yet certified with SLES 10!
