I have Oracle 9.0.1 database running on Caldera OpenLinux Server 3.1 and it's working fine. I've just installed Oracle Designer 6i Release 4.1.1 on to my Win2K client, installed repository and enabled versioning.
When I try to create a new workarea (besides Global.Shared Workarea) I get the following message:
Message

Any suggestions? Is this problem caused by Oracle9i DB, since it does not use rollback segments (it uses undo tables instead)?
