Thursday, 15 November 2012 missing when installing Oracle on Ubantu/Redhat Linux

Problem Description:
Upon starting the installer, I receive the following error:
Error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This occurs on newer Red Hat based distributions where has become deprecated. In order to install and operate oracle, you will need to obtain this library. 

In newer distributions, you should be able to obtain this library from the following RPM files:

libXp-1.0.0*.i386 (32-bit)
libXp-1.0.0*.x86_64 (64-bit)

You can also use the yum package tool if available to install the library. If you have yum installed, run the following command to obtain the library:

For Redhat 32 bit:
sudo yum install

For Redhat 64-bit:
sudo yum install libXp.x86_64

For Ubantu :
try install the libxp-dev package:

apt-get install libxp6 libxp-dev
yum install libXp libXp-devel
