Failed to link

While installing an RDBMS x86_64 on a OEL5.5 server, i ran into the following error while following the package requirements found on Metalink.

Solution to this was to create a symbolic link like this :

[root@DBEM01 logs]# ls -ltr /usr/lib64/
ls: /usr/lib64/ No such file or directory

[root@DBEM01 logs]# ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

[root@DBEM01 logs]# ls -ltr /usr/lib64/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Jun 15 17:21 /usr/lib64/ -> /usr/lib64/

After this i could continue by hitting the RETRY button on the GUI.
