Has someone managed to install Oracle 11.1 on Fedora 12 ?

The following packages failed to install :

Checking for libaio-0.3.106-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for libstdc++-4.1.1-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for libgcc-4.1.1-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for glibc-devel-2.5-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<

I couldn't find any of these packages in the x64_86 or i386 DVD.
i686 version of the above packages are already installed, but I still get the error while installation.

Are the same 'version' of the packages installed? Sometimes newer packages are installed by the OS, but the oracle installer is looking for specific files in specific directories. Some people get around this with symlinks, although I don't think there is going to be a 'fix' for this until oracle supports RHEL6, I don't think it keeps up with fedora.


Installer couldn't check the difference between i386 and i686, I ignored the error and completed the installation. Oracle works fine.
