How do you upgrade the Oracle client in Linux RHEL 4 (64-bit) from 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.4?

I need to upgrade a 64-bit linux oracle client install from 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.4. Our helpful DBAs insist that the only way they know how is with the GUI-based patch thing. Is there really no command-line patch I can apply? If so, where do I find it?

You can use yum.

The Oracle Installer allows you to set up a response file and then simply Run the installer without any interaction in "silent" mode. The response file can be found in a directory called 'response'.

Really, read your Oracle documentation. It explains all of this. Also try:

$ ./runInstaller -help

Seconding vacapinta. Oracle likes their GUI installer. A response file would be the best way for this.
