    Unanswered: Create a new db on linux

    Hi,

    I'm looking for the command to create a new db on linux, I have been working with oracle and windows for 10 years but have very little linux experience

    on windows I would run

    C:\oracle\ora10g\bin\oradim -new -sid ORCL -intpwd PASSWORD -startmode auto -pfile c:\oracle\ora10g\database\initORCL.ora

    Do I do something similar on linux or is it totally different?

    cheers
    Robert

    invoke dbca; a nice GUI that completes all required actions
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Obviously AFTER installing the fine Oracle software...

    Otherwise, download the software and during installation you can choose to create a database (which will actually invoke dbca to create it).

    Assuming you have already installed Oracle on that box, the commands should be identical
    Code:
    /path/to/oracle/bin/oradim -new -sid ORCL -intpwd PASSWORD -startmode auto -pfile /path/to/database/initORCL.ora
    You will need to adjust the paths according to your system.

    >/path/to/oracle/bin/oradim

    oradim does not exist on my *NIX system.
    What needs to be done to fix this?

    I'd say if everything else fails, read the instructions:

    Creating an Oracle Database
