Error While Loading Shared Libraries:

I was installing EBS 12.1.1 Vision for testing purposes. Unix team member installed the additional packages using Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86-64 [ID 761566.1]. After downloading and extracting all packages I started the installer. Everything went well till this screen:

That doesn't look good... After stopping and starting EBS by using and step showed an error:
--> Process (index=1,uid=1191665904,pid=28020)
    failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit


And at  HTTP_Server~1.log:
/opt/oracle/VIS/apps/tech_st/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/httpd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

On metalink there is a note (879522.1) to create a symbolic link to ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

But after double checking note 761566.1, at the Other Requirements section, there is small note:
Download and apply the patch 6078836 from My Oracle Support to fix an issue with the Oracle HTTP Server (missing bundled with the
E-Business Suite technology stack.
Note that this patch (which includes a required operating system library) must be applied before installing Oracle E-Business Suite.

EBS went smooth after installing this small patch.
