Frequent Advisor error after upgrading to Oracle 8.1.7

My system has been upgraded to Oracle 8.1.7. It is running on a HP-UX 11.00 O/S.
Although the Oracle does appear to be running ok i.e. sqlplus is able to access the data, the accounting application that I am running is falling over with the following message,
/usr/lib/ cannot open shared library:
It then draws attention to the file and then outputs the following message,
/usr/lib/ No such file or directory.
Any information would be appreciated!!

Re: error after upgrading to Oracle 8.1.7

Did you upgrade your OS?
Any OS patches installed?

Do you have the library path with the SHLIB_PATH variable.

If you had applied OS patches then you need to re-link the executables of Oracle.

Check hte Oracle 8.1.7 installation was successfull and no errors.

Check for the following
Do you have following file where you have installed java ?

For /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Can't find library for -lclntsh error
try following steps.

% cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/lib
% make -f mkldflags
% $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh
% make -f install

Then you can try this.

add JAVA_HOME=/opt/java1.2
add /opt/java1.2/jre/lib/PA_RISC/classic to SHLIB_PATH env variable

If it does not work then
try with
add /opt/java1.3/jre/lib/PA_RISC/classic to SHLIB_PATH instead of
Never give up, Keep Trying

Re: error after upgrading to Oracle 8.1.7

There may at times be multiple copies of the Java base on the system. Make sure the first one in the path in the Oracle owner, and installer (oracle, and orainst in most cases) is the correct Jave. That will eliminate some of the hurt. If you are having a problem with the it tends to be the SHLIB_PATH confriguration, or the permissions.
