Re: Oracle Error messages

I normally re-install again whenever I get relinking problems. Make sure that your /temp is > 150 MB. Their recommended 75MB is just not enough. I tried once using $TEMPDIR in the .profile instead of /temp but it didn't work so I went back to /temp and increased it to 256MB. Also make sure you have enough space on oracle's installation directory/filesystem.

Hope this helps

Re: Oracle Error messages

Hi Jackie,

I had this recently within a patch from 8.1.6.0.0 to 8.1.6.3.0 !
After this failed, we tried to reinstall 8.1.6.0.0 -> Did not work either. Same link error. Finally, we restored the backup of the executables (they work OK).

We did not manage to get it to work. After this, it turned out, that the executables of oracle have been copied (not installed) from another box. We still did not figure out what was missing, but it must have been something from the installation requirements (Patches to linker, or some libs). I suspect 32-bit vs. 64 bit mismatch here, esp. as somebody did not install, but simply copied the execs.

We are still tracking on this.

On the other hand, I had several installations on diffrent plattforms (HP-UX, AIX), where it failed because of insufficiant /tmp space, but there was always a clear message indicating this, a popup to be confirmed after fix, and a successfull retry after extension of /tmp.

So I am very interested, if this /tmp thing did work for you (esp. as you did not had an error message).

Re: Oracle Error messages

Hello, I had this problem and the solution is that you have to modify the kernel parameter maxdsiz to 256000000.

This is O.K to install Oracle 8i or 8.1.7.
Bye.
