HP-UX 11.00 / Ora9i, Error Linking ins_ctx.mk

I receive at 90% the following error:

/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Can't find library: "Xm"
*** Error exit code 1

Stop

I install all patches and increase the maxdsiz, so i could fix the other linking problems. I trying different PATH variablen, but that didn't fix the problem. Can anyone help me ?

Thanks

Re: HP-UX 11.00 / Ora9i, Error Linking ins_ctx.mk

hi,
there is a known issue about that. (in fact i am preparing for an installation and have already anticipated this problem ;) )

See the quote from Metalink (just in case you don't access to it):
============================================================

Doc ID: Note:180445.1
Subject: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Can't find library: "Xm" for linking 64bit executables
Type: PROBLEM
Status: PUBLISHED
Content Type: TEXT/PLAIN
Creation Date: 18-MAR-2002
Last Revision Date: 08-MAY-2002


Problem Description
-------------------

You are trying to install a 64bit Oracle product on a 64bit HP
system. During the linking stage, you are getting numerous "error
invoking target 'install' of makefile " errors.

The $ORACLE_HOME/install/make.log file reveals these types of errors:

...
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Can't find library: "Xm"
*** Error exit code 1

Stop.


HP Document KBRC00003627 states that you must create the following
three soft links:

ln -s /usr/lib/Motif2.1/libXm.4 /usr/lib/Motif2.1/libXm.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXt.3 /usr/lib/libXt.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 /usr/lib/libX11.sl

You check /usr/lib and the links are there.



Solution Description
--------------------

You need to create the 64bit equivalents of these same symbolic links:

ln -s /usr/lib/Motif2.1/pa20_64/libXm.4 /usr/lib/Motif2.1/pa20_64/libXm.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/pa20_64/libXt.3 /usr/lib/pa20_64/libXt.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/pa20_64/libX11.3 /usr/lib/pa20_64/libX11.sl





Explanation
-----------
On 64bit HP-UX 11.0, required X libraries are located in a new directory
location.

Re: HP-UX 11.00 / Ora9i, Error Linking ins_ctx.mk

Hi,

it brings me to the point. But i must set an other link:

ln -s /usr/lib/Motif2.1/libXm.4 /usr/lib/libXm.sl

Then it works. Otherwise the install routine don't find the library. Mysteriously, i must set the link to the 32 Bit lib. If i set following link:

ln -s /usr/lib/Motif2.1/pa20_64/libXm.4 /usr/lib/libXm.sl

i receive the error, that the library aren't a 32 Bit library. But it is a 64 Bit machine. By the way, it runs now.

Thank you very much for the tip !!!
