During the installation of Oracle 12c (12.1) I encountered the following error:
Error in invoking target 'irman ioracle' of makefile '/u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk'. See '/u01/app/oraInventory/logs/installActions2015(...).log' for details.
Inside the logfile the following error is encountered:
INFO: collect2: ld terminated with signal 9 [Killed]
According to metalink doc 2040972.1 this is due to less memory available (in a VM environment).
Need more memory
I indeed had ‘not much’ memory (2GB) for my VM in Oracle VM and after increasing the memory to 3GB and relinking, irman and ioracle where build!
cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin /usr/bin/make -f $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk ioracle /usr/bin/make -f $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk irman
