Part of this series of posts: Oracle Database 12c on Oracle Linux 6
You don’t actually need to run the commands in the above screen shot.
Notice that uname –r has a different kernel version (…400.17.1) than the kernel in /usr/src/kernels (…400.209.1). We’ll have to reboot to get the new kernel loaded so that we can build the Oracle VirtualBox extensions on our system. This is a common problem that folks have when the install the VirtualBox guest extensions (one of our future steps). They don’t reboot the machine after updating the kernel and the guest extensions won’t compile correctly. There is a VERY good chance that your kernel version will be different from the one above.
Rebooting also makes sure that SELINUX is disabled (one of our earlier steps).
Select System -> Shut Down… from the menu.
You’ll see a lot of messages from the system as it goes down and then comes back up. Eventually you’ll see the below screen.
Type oracle in the password field and click Log In.
Optionally jump ahead to Step 30 and then come back here if you want to do the rest of the install with a full screen guest.
