It’s always a good idea to be wary of assuming too much.
Looking at the current Conservative Party Leadership contest, you might assume that a fantasy Brexit policy and a history of class A drug use were pre-requisites for the job of Prime Minister.
You may further assume that one is a result of the other.
That last assumption is unlikely however, unless the smoking, snorting and otherwise ingesting of illicit substances is widespread across all of the other major political parties. Then again…
For my part, I’ve had to correct some of my assumptions about the process for installing the OE sample schema into Oracle 18cXE running on CentOS 7.
What follows is a quick guide on how to accomplish this…without all the head-scratching over apparently spurious errors.
Specifically, I will be covering :
- getting the OE schema installation scripts
- checking the pre-requisites for the OE schema installation have been met
- preparing the scripts for execution
- performing the installation
Before we go too much further though, it’s probably wise to state some assumptions…
