 When installing Oracle Database on Oracle Linux 6 64bit it is recommended to run the following:

yum install oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall

But this will only install the 64bit required packages as with only one 32bit package is required. For more details see the section 4.3 Package Requirements in the following document:


Dbvisit Standby will require you to install the glibc.i686 package when Oracle Linux 6 64bit is used.

Below is an example of the installation on Oracle Linux 6.3 64bit where Oracle is installed. Once the glibc.i686 is installed you should be able to continue with the installation and use of Dbvisit Standby.
