Installing software: when will I ever learn!

Yesterday: installing Oracle SOA suite within an Enterprise Linux VMWare machine! As per usual, I only half read the installation pre-requisites and other requirements.
- Install DB: piece of cake…
- Before installing SOA suite, install all required packages,
- install BPEL, ESB schemas…
- and then the OUI.
Upon connecting to the database, it started complaining about the right version of the database. As some version of 9i was listed there, I thought I was OK with my 10 something, not really reading the error message. So I start testing the connections to the database… restart OUI… nothing! Still not reading the error message… Only later it dawned on me that for a 10g database I had to be on the latest patch level!
It was clearly mentioned in the installation requirement, so no excuses there! I guess I’ll just have to start reading more thoroughly… some day!
