Create the required directories
add the following code line
export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/home/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/lib export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
Now copy downloaded oracle installation files to the /tmp directory. Ensure that oracle user can access the files and folder.
Switch the user to oracle and unzip both the 11g installer dir. This should create a single dir database. Post this logout and login with oracle
Now go to the database dir and run the runInstaller.
