 Cannot create database (Oracle 8.1.7 on Redhat 7.1)

Hi all!

I installed Oracle 8.1.7 Enterprise Edition on Redhat 7.1. The system
has plenty of disk space and 256MB RAM, Pentium III. I did all the
preparation needed and the install was successful.

Now I'm trying to create the database. Here is what happens:
1. Creating new database using dbassist - hangs at creating datafiles
(I know the database creation is slow, but I waited for more than 10
hours)
2. Copying sample database using dbassist - hangs at initializing
database (I've noticed that datafiles are already at the right place,
but control files are not...)
3. Creating the scripts in dbassist for creating new database and
executing scripts (e.g. using svrmgrl) - svrmgrl hangs

I haven't recompiled the kernel. Instead of this I did:
echo 250 32000 100 128 > /proc/sys/kernel/sem
echo 256000000         > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
echo 256000000         > /proc/sys/kernel/shmall

ORACLE_SID is set. There is nothing in alert<SID>.log file.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I just solved the problem. If anyone falls in the same situation
(Redhat 7.1, Oracle installed successfully, cannot create database)
here is the solution:
In addition to
   compat-glibc-6.2-2.1.3.2.i386.rpm
   compat-libs-6.2-3.i386.rpm
   compat-egcs-6.2-1.1.2.14.i386.rpm
another rpm must be installed:
   glibc-2.1.3-stubs.tar.gz
prior to creating the database!

Hi!

I'm not totally sure about which glibc version RH 7.1 uses, but your
problems seems like if you need to install the glibc patch from the
oracle site.
Another tip is to unset the lang environment variable for the oracle
user. I.e. "unset LANG". But I guess that you've already done that, as
you managed to make the DBMS install in the first place. But that line
has to be in the .bashrc of the oracle user as well.
However, take a look at the SuSE website, where you'll find plenty of
information on Oracle on Linux in general (and on SuSE in particular).

http://www.suse.de/en/support/oracle/index.html

and check the document for 8.1.7 on 7.1 or 7.2 (those are the SuSE
version numbers).
