HI Ratnajit,

I checked the above notes but problem still persist.

Note 980426 - Oracle 10.2 Software installation on new operating systems

we can bypass the prerequisite with the help of above note but here i m getting error during linking

Note 1310037 - SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 11: Installation notes

as you knew, I am getting linking issue, I also check the above note inwhich i got below note.

If you get linker errors during the installation of Oracle patch set please refer to

SAP note 1395928

Exception String: Error in invoking target 'collector' of

makefile '/oracle/QO2/102_64/sysman/lib/'


Ignore the make error and terminate the installation of patch set Then install patch set, which does not exhibit the make error.

but here I am getting

Error in Invoking Target 'install' of makefile /oracle/SID/102_64/ctx/lib/

here, If i ignore this message and continue the installation then may i get issue during sap installation.

what I have to do?
