How much free space required for Oracle Binaries

In the offical documentation, it states 1.9GB free space required for Enterprise/Standard edition installation, and 2.0GB for Custom type installation. But is it enough?

In recent 10gR2 (10.2.0.4) RAC implementation, it shows at least 7.6GB for Database and 2.0GB for Oracle Clusterware.


[oracle@VMXDB03 10.2.0]$ ls |xargs du -sh
7.6G asm
2.0G crs
7.6G db


The top space consumer is patch backup files.

[oracle@VMXDB03 db]$ ls -a .patch_storage|xargs du -sh
5.9G .patch_storage


[oracle@VMXDB03 .patch_storage]$ ls |xargs du -sh
