Response to: according to problem (dbca)

Hi,
I am Trying Oracle 9.2.0.1.0 on Linux Red Hat 9
I am following instruction on puschitz.com.


Things went fine during installtion as i proceed as per puschitz's instructions
However at the i faced some problem.
and i badly seek your advice and help on that


Below is list of activities i done for this..


Checked Memory
grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo : found proper


Checked Swap space
cat /proc/swaps : found proper


set Shared Memory
echo "kernel.shmmax=2147483648" >> /etc/sysctl.conf


checked the space in /tmp
$ df /tmp : found adequate


Oracle Disk Space
/oradir mount point with 3GB space


checked Development Packages
rpm -q gcc cpp compat-libstdc++ glibc-devel glibc-kernheaders binutils


Created Oracle user Account
su - root
groupadd dba # group of users to be granted with SYSDBA system privilege
groupadd oinstall # group owner of Oracle files
useradd -c "Oracle software owner" -g oinstall -G dba oracle
passwd oracle


Created Oracle Directories
su - root
mkdir /oradir/oracle
mkdir /oradir/oracle/product
mkdir /oradir/oracle/product/9.2.0
chown -R oracle.oinstall /oradir/oracle


Following not created as i was not having /var mount point
mkdir /var/opt/oracle
chown oracle.dba /var/opt/oracle
chmod 755 /var/opt/oracle



Added Following Environment variables in .bash_profiles of oracle user and confirmed by relogging and 'set' as well as echo
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1


export ORACLE_BASE=/oradir/oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=/oradir/oracle/product/9.2.0
export ORACLE_SID=SAKET
export ORACLE_TERM=xterm
export NLS_LANG=AMERICAN;
export ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin


CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib
CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$ORACLE_HOME/network/jlib
export CLASSPATH


Now, i relogged in and checked environment variables are proper


put CD 1 Of 3 ->the OUI started Properly
ORacle Home Name : j
Oracle Home Path : /oradir/oracle/product/9.2.0.1.0 (was selected by default)


Privileged Operating System Groups :dba (i kept the default)
Oracle Managent Server Repository: New i selected
Create database : No



The Error1 (resolved finally)
"Error in invoking target install of makefile /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk"
adding "`cat $(LIBHOME)/sysliblist`" string to $ORACLE_HOME/ctx/lib/env_ctx.mk and clicking 'Retry' resolved it
INSO_LINK = -L$(CTXLIB) $(LDLIBFLAG)m `cat $(LIBHOME)/sysliblist` $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ca $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_fa $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ex $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_da $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ut $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ch $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_fi $(LLIBCTXHX) $(LDLIBFLAG)c -Wl,-rpath,$(CTXHOME)lib $(CORELIBS) $(COMPEOBJS)


Then
Database Creation complete successful
Link Successful
Network Services Successful


Then Error2 (unresolved)
the attemp to create a database for the enterprise manager repository failed, because:
The command:
"/oradir/oracle/product/9.2.0.1.0/bin/dbca -
progress_only -emca_interrnal -createDatabase -
templateName Transaction_Processing.dbc -
gdbName OEMREP.localdomain -sid OEMREP"
RETURNED STATUS: 137



Here i finished installation thinking that i will go for OEM stuff later point of time.


Then Error3 (unresolved)
then tried to start dbca
dbca
SIGSEGV 11* segmentation violation
stackbase stackpointer
Full thread:

/oradir/oracle/product/9.2.0.1.0/bin/dbca: line 124: 3170 killed $JRE_DIR/bin/jre -DORACLE_HOME=$OH -DJDBC_PROTOCOL=thin -mx64m -classpath $CLASSPATH..........
oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca $ARGUMENTS


I executed the ipcs command to get the address of the shared memory segments that have been allocated by Oracle:
$ su - root
# ipcs


But there was no entry with 'oracle' as owner name.


Then Error4 (unresolved)


Then Tried lsnrctl
lsnrctl status
.. Got an error
According to puschitz.com


su - root
mkdir /var/tmp/.oracle
chown oracle:dba /var/tmp/.oracle
Now try to run lsnrctl start as oracle again.
But i do not have /var
What tyo do here?



Here i am stuck up, i struggled a lot last few days.
success seems closer but how to get it.


Here again i need your advice
puschitz.com asks for patches for RH As not for RH. so how to proceed are any patches required for RH 9 also or same as RH AS.
if yes can you help me in getting URL, i am trying at home, no metalink registration available.


Thanks in advance
