Please try doing this:

1) when the error comes rename the libwtc9.sl to libwtc9.sl.old and click
retry button.
2) The new file will be installed.

make sure you are logged on as the user you intend to own oracle and if you started an install as the wrong owner you need to make sure you clean up the files/permissions in the oracle code tree.

If retry fails....

Check the SHLIB_PATH and other ORA variables in the database user you are using for the install.

Do not use the ignore option.

You may need to redo the install.

This can also be triggered by something as simple as bad permissions/ownership or not enough space on the target filesystem.

Hi vincenzo,

I ran also into this kind of messages.
The problem was, that some processes of oracle were running and thus hindering the update of the file.

Yes I _just_ had this error trying to upgrade to 9.2.0.4 and realized that I had left the listener running. `lsnrctl stop` and hit "Retry" on the error window and all is well.

Vincenzo,

Don is correct. You also will need to stop or kill the "dbsnmp" processes (there will be 2) that are running as well. This will allow the installation to proceed normally.

Hi,

This error "error in writing to file /oracle/product/9.2.0/lib/libwtc9.sl" is for the fowlloing reason.

Once you had installed the base release Oracle 9i RDBMS and completed the netconfiguration, the listener process has started. Now when you try to install the patchset it will try to access the shared library libwtc9.sl which is currently being used by the listener process. All you need to do is login a different session, stop the listener process and come back to the installation screen and press re-try. This time it will proceed normally.

I had experience this kind before when installing patchset for oracle 8i.

Stopping the listner and the dbsnmp process helps but I am not quite sure whether renaming the sl file to sl.old is a good idea, as the library needs to updated during the link phase....

Thanks,
