I'd be looking at kernal parameters linked to memory ...semaphores etc and also make sure I have the latest recommended patches for Oracle.

What's sysdefs output ? Is this 32 or 64 bit O/S ?

If you haven't changed maxdsiz, then that is likely the error. This is a runaway program fence to keep mistakes from using all RAM and swap space. The default value is only 67 megs so it is quite low for many database programs. You can increase this to 900 megs for typical programs or 1700 megs for EXEC_MAGIC programs. See /usr/share/doc for a white paper on memory management.

Attached is a document for recomended default kernel values for Oracle 8 on 10.X / 11.X

After checking your maxdsiz you may also want to turn psuedo swap on (by default it should be on). If the system is not able to reserve enough swap then you would get a similar exec error.
All's well that ends well
