On checking
Note 303859.1 Requirements for Installing Oracle 9iR2 on RHEL 4
We find all the required packages has been already installed.

[root@incq038ad ~]# rpm -qa compat-oracle-rhel4
compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5

Cause

The problem is caused because System Administrator has installed the latest O/S updates from the RedHat.
And the Oracle patch "compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5" has been overwritten.
