Unanswered: Oracle 8.1.7 on RH Linux 7.3 --> ORA-27121
After installing Oracle 8.1.7 on RH Linux 7.3 and while trying to startup nomount I get the following error:
"ORA-27121: unable to determine size of shared memory segment
Linux Error: 13: Permission denied"
Can anyone please help? It has been difficult to find any information that has been helpful. Notes follow on the steps taken to install and other misc info...
--> Notes on install:
1.) Installed 6.2 compatibility packages for Linux
2.) Installed JDK 118 from blackdown
3.) I installed Oracle as normal -without creating a database- but added the export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 and ./usr/i386-glibc21-linux/bin/i386-glibc21-linux-env.sh lines before running the installer.
4.) Recieved error messages while trying to link ... then proceeded to open another terminal and unpacked and installed glibc-2.1.3-stubs.tar.gz
5.) Returned to install and attempted to relink --> after SEVERAL repeated attempts of #1-5 this process finally worked sucessfully.
6.) Attempted to start a custom db in nomount and got error above.
7.) verified "sticky bit" baseed on some web lead --> permissions look like,
-rwsr-s--x 1 oracle oinstall 25673086 Mar 7 17:02 oracle
--> Also, .bash_profile for user oracle looks like ...
# User specific environment and startup programs
ORACLE_SID=PINTO; export ORACLE_SID
ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/8.1.7; export ORACLE_HOME
