Re: problems running make -f

Well, I can try ....

Is this your first link ever, or did it already work in the past ?
If first:
- check if C-Compiler is available and matches Oracle requirements in terms of HP-patchlevel.
If already worked before:
- check user-id and environment

If you migrated from 32 to 64 bits, some of your environment-variables concerning libs might need a change from "lib" to "lib64".

The make should be issued by the designated dba-user which should belong to the Op-Sys-group which you confirmed upon the installation of the software (usually "dba").

Good luck

Re: problems running make -f

Problem Description

Cannot relink oracle. Patch installation also fails.

When manually try to relink softeware you get errors, for example

% cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib
% make -f ioracle

make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target

Solution Description

Turn off not installed options

% make -f sdo_off

Also check the options
sdo_off: Spatial Data Option
ops_off: Parallel Server Option
part_off: Partition Option
obj_off: Object Option
ctx_off: Context Option or Intermedia


Somehow an option had been enabled, but such option had not been installed.
For enable a installed option , simply, for example

%make -f sdo_on

Re: problems running make -f


Have you enabled and not installed the Spatial Data Option?

if yes, one work-around would be to use the following:

$ make -f sdo_off

Re: problems running make -f

Good practice here.

Get out your December 2002 Application cd's install the latest c, c++ and ansi/c compilers.

Then isntall the December 2002 patch set. The try again.

Even if it doesn't solve the problem it is good practice.

It is possible the file /reppro/rep01/oracle/8.1.7/rdbms/lib/skgxpd.o. may have been corrupted and simply may need to be restored. This has happened to us.
