    Unanswered: Oracle 8i Client on Pentium 4

    Hi,

    I've a problem with Oracle 8i and Dell GX240 (P4, 128MB RAM), too.

    I can't install the Oracle 8i Client Version on Windows NT 4.0 (SP6). If I doubleclick on SETUP.EXE I can see in the TASK MANAGER that there open the JREW.EXE. But this .exe closed after ca. 5 seconds and nothing happends.

    When I install Oracle 8i on a Pentium 3 machine, the installation and the program works fine.

    Can somebody help me???

    If you look in the \install\win32 there is another setup.exe.

    Use that one instead.

    install

    Did you change the file name symcjit.dll locates in the folder stage\Components\oracle.swd.jre\1.1.7.30\1\DataFil es\Expanded\jre\win32\bin ?
    If you have done it,and had failed,try like this :
    1, copy the install cd to local disk,change the file name symcjit.dll to symcjit.old.
    2,search the file oraparam.ini ,then change the parameter JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-mx48m to JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32m
    3,then run the file in install\win32\setup.exe.

    This is ORACLE´s suggested workaround of the problem:

    ************************************************** ******
    18-APR-2001

    This alert was modified 16-January-2001 by specifying specific
    Oracle Universal
    Installer Versions in the the Versions Affected section.

    Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) for 8.1.x Hangs on Machines
    with Pentium 4
    Processors

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Versions Affected
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Oracle 8.1.5
    ============
    Oracle Universal Installer 1.6.0.9.0

    Oracle 8.1.6
    =============
    Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.0.19.0

    Oracle 8.1.7
    ==============
    Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.1.9.0


    Platforms Affected
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the
    Sun JRE
    and Symmantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT,
    Windows 2000
    and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be affected.

    Description
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    When installing Oracle Products with the Oracle Universal
    Installer (8.1.x)
    on machines that use the Sun JRE and Symmantec JIT, the
    installer hangs.

    Specifically for the Windows platform, the following version
    of the Symmantec
    JIT or earlier will encounter the failure:

    Symantec Java! JustInTime Compiler Version 3.10.107 for JDK
    1.2.

    Details regarding this issue can be found at:


    http://developer.intel.com/design/pr...manuals/knowni ssue.htm

    How to determine if you have Symmantec Java for JDK 1.2:
    1. Select the file "symcjit.dll" and right click on it.
    2. Select Properties, then the Version tab.
    3. Under Microsoft Windows*, the properties of the DLL are:
    "Symantec Java! JustInTime Compiler Version 3.10.107 for
    JDK 1.2 Copyright (C)
    1996-99 Symantec Corporation Dynamic Link Library file".

    DLLs older than this will also not work. "

    Likelihood of Occurrence
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the
    Sun JRE
    and Symmantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT,
    Windows 2000 and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be
    affected.


    Possible Symptoms
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The failure typically is that the affected application simply
    terminates.

    Workaround
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Not only will OUI be affected by this bug, most of the
    post-install
    configuration tools will also be affected. Running these
    tools with "-nojit"
    specified will avoid the hang, but it is not simple to specify
    "-nojit" for
    some of the products.

    The following workaround works for the Windows operating
    system:

    a. Copy only the install directory from the CD to the hard
    disk ,say, e:\temp.

    b. Open oraparam.ini and make the following modifications
    (Assuming CD
    drive is f:)

    * Change the "SOURCE=" line to use the full path to the CD
    instead of a
    relative path. (i.e., SOURCE=f:\stage\products.jar)

    * Change the "JRE_LOCATION" line to use the full path to the
    CD instead of a
    relative path. (i.e.,

    JRE_LOCATION=f:\stage\Components\oracle\swd\jre\1. 1.7\1\DataFiles
    \Expanded)

    * Change the "OUI_LOCATION" line to use the full path to the
    CD instead of a
    relative path. (i.e.,

    OUI_LOCATION=f:\stage\Components\oracle\swd\oui\1. 6.0.9.0\1\DataF
    iles\Expanded

    * Change the "JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS" line to add "-nojit" as the
    first argument.
    (i.e., JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32m)
    ^^^^^^
    * Other entries should remain the same

    c. Launch setup.exe from the temporary location on your hard
    drive (i.e.
    e:\temp\install\win32\setup.exe). This will use the
    modified
    oraparam.ini and pick up the information from the CD since
    the absolute
    locations are specified.

    Choose a Custom install and choose not to create a database
    during the
    install. This way, the Database Configuration Assistant will
    not be launched
    during installation.

    The Net8 Configuration Assistant will still be launched, and
    there is no way
    to suppress it. You will need to kill the Net8 Configuration
    Assistant if it
    hangs due to the bug. The installation still will have been
    successful, and
    you can run the DBCA and NetCA after installation.

    To kill NetCA if it hangs during installation:
    In the "Configuration Tools" window, highlight the "Net8
    Configuration
    Assistant" and click "Stop". If that does not work, look for
    the most recent
    JRE process using the Task Manager, and kill it manually.
    NOTE: the OUI
    itself will also have a jre process. Be sure to kill the one
    with the most
    recent date, which should be the jre process being used for
    Net8CA, not the
    one for OUI itself.

    After killing the configuration tools and continuing through
    the installation
    to the "End of Installation" screen, you should modify the
    configuration tools
    to use "-nojit", then call the appropriate tools from the
    Start Menu.

    Once installation is complete, each of the following files in
    the ORACLE_HOME
    needs to be modified:

    assistants\dbca\dbassist.cl
    assistants\dbma\dbmig.cl
    assistants\ifa\ifa.cl
    bin\elogin.cl
    bin\owm.cl
    ldap\oidamdin\oidadmin.cl
    network\tools\netasst.cl
    network\tools\netca.cl
    owm\install\instelogin.cl
    owm\install\instowm.cl

    Edit the contents of the above files to add "-nojit" as shown
    below:
    Command=("C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.7\BIN\JREW" -nojit
    -classpath ....
    this is the only thing you need to add --> ^^^^^^

    Then, launch the necessary tools, like Net8CA and DBCA from
    the Start Menu.

    Patches
    ~~~~~~~
    Currently there is not a patched installer available to deal
    with this
    problem, the workaround listed above must be used.

    The installation will beginn when I click on /install/win32/setup.exe or when I click /setup.exe.

    What is the meaning of this prameters, they I must change? And what function has the symcjit.dll?

    Cool

    Actually, it is working, but you have to apply some fixes first. It is well know problems with JRE and Pentium IV.

    Read about the fixes in details Here


    Hope that helps,
