"libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" error while installing Oracle

We got below error while installing Oracle 10g on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5


libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
While doing a fresh install of 11i vision on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5, RapidInstall gave the following error:

Rapid Install Wizard will now launch the Java Interface.....

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /11istage/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/jre/Linux/1.4.2/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution:

This error comes because libXp.so.6 library is not present in /usr/lib.  The rpm which contains this file is libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm.  It is present in the Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 DVD  in /server directory.  So copy this rpm from the DVD or CD and install it:

rpm -ivh libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm

Once this is installed, confirm about the presence of the the file libXp.so.6 by this command:

$ ls -ld /usr/lib/libXp.so.6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jul 29 06:45 /usr/lib/libXp.so.6 -> libXp.so.6.2.0

  1. Thank you for the blog. I am hitting the same situation. I have requested Unix admin to install the package. Looks like it is going to be solved. :) Thank you.
