  • If you intend to install Oracle and SAP on the same system, please, do not install the “Oracle Server Base” pattern (i.e. the “orarun” RPM package) on the system. Doing so, will prevent “sapinst” from doing a correct installation of the SAP system parts.
  • If your SAP component requires the java jdk 1.4.2 you need to install the java JDK from the additional SDK media. This media is available at:http://download.suse.comSelect the “SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit” as product and version 11 (same Service Pack) of this product.  Press the button “search” to get a download list. You will need a SUSE account to proceed with the download
