Applicable for all Oracle VM Releases
Oracle VM Manager 3.x has a total of two operating system prerequisite packages, libaio 0.3.104 or above, which is only necessary with the Oracle XE Database, and unzip 3.3.2.4.2 or above. To check if a Linux host has the libaio and unzip packages, as root, type “ rpm -qa libaio unzip” as shown in the next example.
# rpm -qa libaio unzip
unzip-5.52-3.el5
libaio-0.3.106-5
libaio-0.3.106-5

The above example shows that the Oracle VM Manager host has both of the prerequisite packages.
 
If your Oracle VM Manager host is missing one or both of the prerequisite packages, both RPM packages are available at the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network, the Oracle public yum repository and on the Oracle Linux media.

If your Oracle VM Manager host is registered with Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network, as root, type “up2date -i libaio” and/or “up2date -i unzip” for Oracle Linux 5 systems, or “yum install libaio” and/or “yum install unzip” for Oracle Linux 6 systems.

To install the RPMs from the Oracle public yum repository, for Oracle Linux 6 systems, as root type the following commands:
 
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
# wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo
# yum install libaio
and/or
# yum install unzip

For Oracle Linux 5 systems, as root type the following commands:

# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
# wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo
# yum install libaio
and/or
# yum install unzip

To install the libaio and/or the unzip RPMs from the Oracle Linux DVD or ISO file, as root, mount the DVD or ISO file, cd to the directory with the RPMs, and type “rpm -ivh libaio-<version>.rpm” and/or “rpm -ivh unzip-<version>.rpm”.

The next example shows how to download and mount the Oracle Linux installation media file and install RPMs from the installation media.
  1. Download the Oracle Linux installation media (not source) from the  Oracle Software Delivery Cloud - Oracle Linux and Oracle VM portal portal.
  2. Copy the Oracle Linux installation media to a directory on the Oracle VM Manager host.
  3. Log in to the Oracle VM Manager host as root, and unzip the file.
  4. Mount the ISO file by typing “mount -o loop <FILE NAME>.iso /mnt”.
  5. Change (cd) to the /mnt directory, i.e. “cd /mnt and type "find /mnt -name <RPM NAME> -print" to locate the RPMs. 
  6. Change (cd) to the directory with the RPMs, and type "rpm -ivh libaio-<version>.rpm” and/or “rpm -ivh unzip-<version>.rpm”.
