 Symbolic Link Oracle8i Linux
Hi Everyone

What does symbolic mean in 'Create a SYMBOLIC link from /usr/local/jre
to installed_path_of_jre/jre_116_v5'  when installing Oracle 8i on a
LINUX platform.

Many thanks.

Thiko!

That would mean using the ln command to create an alias.
If I understand you correctly you need to have a link
like follows
ln -s /usr/local/jre <installed path>/jre_116_v5

Please refrain from posting such questions to all Oracle newsgroups. IMO,
this is a typical server topic.

A symbolic link is a file system pointer to another file (or
directory) To find out more about them, do a 'man ln' under
linux.

For this particular problem, they are telling you to do the following:

ln -s  $ORACLE_HOME/jre_116_v5   /usr/localjre

'ln' is the link command
'-s' is the symbolic link flag (there is another link of link as well)
jre_116_v5 is the source directory
/usr/local/jre is the destination directory

ie: create a symbolic link between $ORACLE_HOME/jre_116_v5 and
/usr/local/jre
