newbie - Oracle Install problem - ORA-03113: end-of-file on comm.channel

Hi,
I've recently installed Oracle and am having difficulty starting up and creating a database.
This is probably an elementary error so don't assume I've tried the obvious !

Here's a transcript of the session :

/export/home/ora8i/OraHome1/bin/svrmgrl

Oracle Server Manager Release 3.1.7.0.0 - Production

Copyright (c) 1997, 1999, Oracle Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release 8.1.7.0.0 - Production
With the Partitioning option
JServer Release 8.1.7.0.0 - Production

SVRMGR> spool /export/home/ora8i/OraHome1/admin/oratest/create/crdb1.log
SVRMGR> connect internal
Connected.
SVRMGR> startup nomount pfile = "/export/home/ora8i/OraHome1/admin/oratest/pfile/initoratest.ora"
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel

SVRMGR> CREATE DATABASE "oratest"
2> maxdatafiles 254
3> maxinstances 8
4> maxlogfiles 32
5> character set US7ASCII
6> national character set US7ASCII
7> DATAFILE '/oradata/oradata/oratest/system01.dbf' SIZE 260M AUTOEXTEND ON NEXT 10240K
8> logfile '/oradata/oradata/oratest/redo01.log' SIZE 500K,
9> '/oradata/oradata/oratest/redo02.log' SIZE 500K,
10>'/oradata/oradata/oratest/redo03.log' SIZE 500K;
disconnect
CREATE DATABASE "oratest"
*
ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE
SVRMGR> Disconnected.
SVRMGR>

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've un-installed and reinstalled a couple of times but am still getting the same problems,

TIA

Richard.

Hi Richard,

How are you kernel parameters configured, in particular SEMMNS

Look at the thread

Hi there.
Get the Orcale Onstall and Upgrade guide from Oracle TechNet or Oracle Metalink.
Check your kernel parameters and check whether HP-UX patch PHSS_22478 is installed.
The SHMMAX should be larger than 1 GB.
This is the URL for Install Guide :

Hi
Your Installation isn't the problem, but the kernel parameters are.
set
SHMMAX = amount of physical memory on your box
SEMMNS = more than (sum of "PROCESSES" parameter in all your instances (init.ora)) x 2

The other parameters tend to be sufficient.
