installing em13c : errors not captured ....

I installed Em 13c last week on Redhat 7.2 the installation was on a vmware vm at the customer that was given to me without explanation. After going through the prereqs and installing missing packages I started the installation of this "temporary" setup. what is OEL so much easier .... Everything went fine up to the configuration of Bi publisher that step failed miserably. Log files showed that the oms which is stopped before didn't come up. digging a bit deeper showed following in the logs :

So basically ld and ar where not allowed to execute due to some acl .... once fixed as root with

setfacl -m u:oem:rx /usr/bin/ld.bfd
setfacl -m u:oem:rx /usr/bin/as
 

and I restarted the installation it went on smoothly. the sad point is that this error which happened way before configuring the BI publisher wasn't caught earlier...
