Solution

Fix prior install

Execute the following script:

# Fix ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk

ORACLE_SRC_INSTALL_DIR=/media/sf_uxora_share/database
cd ${ORACLE_SRC_INSTALL_DIR}/stage/Components

jar_file=
for i_file in $( ls ./oracle.ctx/11.2.0.1.0/1/DataFiles/filegroup*.jar ); do
  unzip -l ${i_file} ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk 2>&1 1>/dev/null
  [[ $? -eq 0 ]] && jar_file=${i_file} && break
done

cat << __EOF__ > /tmp/memcpy_wrap.c
#include <stddef.h>
#include <string.h>

asm (".symver wrap_memcpy, memcpy@GLIBC_2.14");
void *wrap_memcpy(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n) {
  return memcpy(dest, src, n);
}
__EOF__
unzip ${jar_file} ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk 2>&1 1>/dev/null
if [[ $? -eq 0 ]]; then
  sed -i -e 's/\$(INSO_LINK)/\$(INSO_LINK) -Wl,--wrap=memcpy_wrap \$(ORACLE_HOME)\/ctx\/lib\/memcpy_wrap.o/g' ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk
  gcc -c /tmp/memcpy_wrap.c -o ctx/lib/memcpy_wrap.o && rm /tmp/memcpy_wrap.c
  jar -uvf  ${jar_file} ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk ctx/lib/memcpy_wrap.o
fi

Fix during install

This fix can only be done in GUI mode installer.
When the windows prompt this error message:

Error in invoking target 'install' of makefile '/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk'. See '/u01/app/oraInventory/logs/installActions2015-04-17_10-00-15PM.log' for details.

Execute the following script then click retry to resume install

# Fix ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk

ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1

cat << __EOF__ > /tmp/memcpy_wrap.c

void *wrap_memcpy(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n) {

I was learning to install Oracle 11.2.0.1.0(64-bit) on CentOS 7, the xxx_xxxx.mk errors spent me about two days. the solution is extremely useful.
Thank you for your sharing.

Try to execute it as command line in the terminal.
Copy and paste the all block in a terminal.

Hi,

When you have the error message during the GUI install,
- open a new terminal
- save the script as a shell script anywhere you want, and make it executable
- change ORACLE_HOME script variable
- execute the script
- Then return to GUI install and click on Retry

Hope that helps,
Michel.

# Awesome Solution!Dan 2015-07-30 16:26
I was trying to install Oracle 11.2.0.4 EE on OEL 7.1 and encountered the very same errors. I created an executable shell program to fix the Oracle software prior to the installation of Oracle binaries as suggested above. I started runInstaller and has no issues during the linking process.
I have a ticket open with Oracle and they are stumped - It's very early in the process so there is a lot of try this...try that... yada yada yada.

You've saved us valuable time waiting endlessly for Oracle - now we can get some work done.

Again, thank you for the solution. Priceless.
