What happens if Oracle Relink Not Done?

I recently applied a HP-UX 10.20 LibC patch on a server with Oracle 8.0.x databases. I did not perform an Oracle relink. The databases are started and users are accessing. Will anything happen because the databases were Not relinked after the patch install?

Re: What happens if Oracle Relink Not Done?

In this case, no. The shared libraries are still compatible and all symbols could be resolved at run-time. The general failure that occurs is that an executable cannot start because not all symbols can be fully resolved.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
