Oracle Prog Support Problem???

Hello Admins:

I am trying to install Oracle 8i on an HP-UX 11.00 machine. I am getting this error during installation as follows:

"Error in Invoking Target ntcontab.o of makefile ......"

I have Oracle support and searched their MetaLink site. I found that this relates to possible temp drive space running out. I found this NOT to be the case. After further investigation, I see that there is this error in my make.log:

cpp: "ntcontab.c", line 7: error 4036: Can't open include file 'sys/types.h'.
*** Error exit code 1

ORACLE's Support tells me this:


"You need to install the Prog support for HP in order to get the correct OS header files installed. Please contact HP support for more information."

Does anyone know which patch will do this this for me? What do I need to get? Is it available on this site? I truly rely on your answers since I have very little support. Thanks in advance,

Mike

You need to install the ProgSupport bundle from your HP-UX Core OS Install CD. This Boudle contains the following filesets:

ProgSupport.C-INC,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.PROG-MIN,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.PROG-AUX,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.PAUX-ENG-A-MAN,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.PROG-AX-64ALIB,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.LANG-MIN,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.LANG-64ALIB,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.C-ENG-A-MAN,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.PMIN-ENG-A-MAN,l=/,r=B.11.00
ProgSupport.PROG-MN-64ALIB,l=/,r=B.11.00

This boundle will resolve your Oracle installation problem.

Thanks guys! That helped me. It just saved my rear portion a lot of sitting time and my top portion a lot of scratching time trying to figure that out.
