I am Trying Oracle 188.8.131.52.0 on Linux Red Hat 9
I am following instruction on puschitz.com.
Things went fine during installtion as i proceed as per puschitz's instructions
However at the i faced some problem.
and i badly seek your advice and help on that
Below is list of activities i done for this..
grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo : found proper
Checked Swap space
cat /proc/swaps : found proper
set Shared Memory
echo "kernel.shmmax=2147483648" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
checked the space in /tmp
$ df /tmp : found adequate
Oracle Disk Space
/oradir mount point with 3GB space
checked Development Packages
rpm -q gcc cpp compat-libstdc++ glibc-devel glibc-kernheaders binutils
Created Oracle user Account
su - root
groupadd dba # group of users to be granted with SYSDBA system privilege
groupadd oinstall # group owner of Oracle files
useradd -c "Oracle software owner" -g oinstall -G dba oracle
Created Oracle Directories
su - root
chown -R oracle.oinstall /oradir/oracle
Following not created as i was not having /var mount point
chown oracle.dba /var/opt/oracle
chmod 755 /var/opt/oracle
Added Following Environment variables in .bash_profiles of oracle user and confirmed by relogging and 'set' as well as echo
Now, i relogged in and checked environment variables are proper
put CD 1 Of 3 ->the OUI started Properly
ORacle Home Name : j
Oracle Home Path : /oradir/oracle/product/184.108.40.206.0 (was selected by default)
Privileged Operating System Groups :dba (i kept the default)
Oracle Managent Server Repository: New i selected
Create database : No
The Error1 (resolved finally)
"Error in invoking target install of makefile /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk"
adding "`cat $(LIBHOME)/sysliblist`" string to $ORACLE_HOME/ctx/lib/env_ctx.mk and clicking 'Retry' resolved it
INSO_LINK = -L$(CTXLIB) $(LDLIBFLAG)m `cat $(LIBHOME)/sysliblist` $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ca $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_fa $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ex $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_da $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ut $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ch $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_fi $(LLIBCTXHX) $(LDLIBFLAG)c -Wl,-rpath,$(CTXHOME)lib $(CORELIBS) $(COMPEOBJS)
Database Creation complete successful
Network Services Successful
Then Error2 (unresolved)
the attemp to create a database for the enterprise manager repository failed, because:
progress_only -emca_interrnal -createDatabase -
templateName Transaction_Processing.dbc -
gdbName OEMREP.localdomain -sid OEMREP"
RETURNED STATUS: 137
Here i finished installation thinking that i will go for OEM stuff later point of time.
Then Error3 (unresolved)
then tried to start dbca
SIGSEGV 11* segmentation violation
/oradir/oracle/product/220.127.116.11.0/bin/dbca: line 124: 3170 killed $JRE_DIR/bin/jre -DORACLE_HOME=$OH -DJDBC_PROTOCOL=thin -mx64m -classpath $CLASSPATH..........
I executed the ipcs command to get the address of the shared memory segments that have been allocated by Oracle:
$ su - root
But there was no entry with 'oracle' as owner name.
Then Error4 (unresolved)
Then Tried lsnrctl
.. Got an error
According to puschitz.com
su - root
chown oracle:dba /var/tmp/.oracle
Now try to run lsnrctl start as oracle again.
But i do not have /var
What tyo do here?
Here i am stuck up, i struggled a lot last few days.
success seems closer but how to get it.
Here again i need your advice
puschitz.com asks for patches for RH As not for RH. so how to proceed are any patches required for RH 9 also or same as RH AS.
if yes can you help me in getting URL, i am trying at home, no metalink registration available.
Thanks in advance
