Calling external procedure in Oracle

Hello,

I am trying to call an external procedure written in C. I have created the shared library (on RH Linux 7.1). I have configured my listener as per the documentation. But whenever I try to connect to Oracle using the connect specifier which instructs listener to start the executable 'extproc' located under $ORACLE_HOME/bin, it dumps core and an error message 'end-of-file communication channel error' is thrown back. Under WinNT platform, it is not much different as it throws Dr. Watson error.
Any idea to correct this problem.

Thanks.
