Re: Oracle9i instn problem on HPUX 11.11

If I'm remembering correctly - this file is mis-named. Find it and make a symbolic link to this point - /u01/oracle/oracle9i/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk. Then restart. I'm just going from memory of over a year ago - so... can't say that at all sure about this one...

Re: Oracle9i instn problem on HPUX 11.11

Hi Venkatesh,

This error is raised when some of the shared libraries are missing in /user/lib. While installing Oracle 8i or i on HP-UX, the linker will look for libXm.sl,libXt.sl and libX11.sl when compiling the binary 'ctxhx'.
Check for the existence of these in /usr/lib and if they do not exist, please make the necessary symbolic links.

make file errors are raised when some of the shared libraries are missing in /user/lib
Eg: - "Error in invoking target install of makefile /ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk"
Check the $ORACLE_HOME/install/make.log to find more details.

Solution Description

1) Verify if libXm.sl exists in /usr/lib:

% cd /usr/lib
% ls -al libXm.sl

If this file does not exist, the linker will fail. It should be a symbolic link to another file, the base X11/Motif library.

2) Check for base X11/Motif libraries.

% ls -al libXm.*

lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 00:14 libXm.1@ -> /usr/lib/Motif1.2/libXm.1
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 00:14 libXm.2@ -> /usr/lib/Motif1.2_R6/libXm.2
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 00:14 libXm.3@ -> /usr/lib/Motif1.2_R6/libXm.3
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 00:14 libXm.4@ -> /usr/lib/Motif2.1/libXm.4

Oracle Metalink says that there are X-Library links that need to be created manually for 9i installation:
Due to a known HP bug, the default HP-UX 64 operating system installation does not create a few required X-librarysymbolic links. These links must be created manually before starting the Oracle9i Release 2 installation. You must have superuser privileges to run these commands.

$ su - root
$ cd /usr/lib
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 libX11.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXIE.2 libXIE.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.3 libXext.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXhp11.3 libXhp11.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXi.3 libXi.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.4 libXm.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXp.2 libXp.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXt.3 libXt.sl
$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXtst.2 libXtst.sl
