    Angry Unanswered: Oracle 9i Installation errors Sun Solaris 8

    I am using Sun Solaris 8 02/02, all the 8-Recommended patches are installed.
    When I install the Oracle 9i software (included with O/S 2.8). I get alot of errno:79 unable to fine a certain files or directories.

    When I get to the Database Configuration Assistant.. it HANGS @ 50%

    Even though it tells me that oracle has been succesfully installed and the other components are not neccessary for oracle to perform.

    I keep getting the ORA_07217: stln: environment variable cannot be evaluated. I get this when I try to login to SQLPLUS.

    Does anyone have a clue?

    Thanks for anyones help!.

    Verify your compiler and linker are supported by Oracle and and re-link your executables using "relink all".

    Otherwise, verify your kernal parameters (/etc/system), swap size (at least 400M) and you have enough RAM to install (512M).

    Re: Oracle 9i Installation errors Sun Solaris 8

    add this setting to /etc/system:

    set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax= 268435456#a half of the computer's memory
    set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
    set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100
    set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=10
    set semsys:seminfo_semmni=100
    set semsys:seminfo_semmsl=160
    set semsys:seminfo_semmns=310
    set semsys:seminfo_semopm=100
    set semsys:seminfo_semvmx=32767

    Cool

    Then check your environment variables. LD_LIBRARY_PATH, ORACLE_SID, ORACLE_HOME, etc..

    or post them here for review. hard to say which one is wrong w/o clear view of them.

    Unhappy

    I have the same error messages when I install oracle 9.0.1 on solaris 9. The following is my LD_LIBRARY_PATH,ORACLE_HOME,and oracle_SID

    ORACLE_HOME=/opt/oracle/product/9.0.1

    ORACLE_SID=DB1

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/sfw/lib
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib

    Thanks for helps.

    You can do that a bit shorter:

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/sfw/lib::/usr/local/lib

    And I guess, you are also doing:

    export ORCALE_SID ORACLE_HOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    right, ???

    I followed that and export ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH. However, the same error message appear.
    I checked the directory and file indicated in the error message.
    There exists those files. What can I do to avoid those errors?


    Thanks.

    Actually, I got "Error in checking existance of the link. errno 79:/export/home/oracle/jre/1.1.8/".
    Plenty of this "errno 79 " errors appear while installing.
    If I ignor those errors, installation hang at 50% when running dbac.

    please advise how to avoid this error.


    Thanks for helps.
