I am new to the Oracle and slowly maturing in Linux and thought that I would try getting Oracle 10g XE up and going to use a project management server on. I am running Centos 5.2 in VMWare Server.

From the many sets of instructions I have found and the instructions with the project management (PPM) server, I should be able to simply install and "bang" I can start running the scripts to install the PPM server.

Here is the install:

    Upload "oracle-xe-univ-10.2.0.1-1.0.i386.rpm" to /home/amcguire/ on server
    Using VMWare Server Console, log on as root
    Quote:
    rpm -ivh /home/amcguire/oracle-xe-10.2.0.1-1.0.i386.rpm
    /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

    Accept defaults and set my password

Now still as root I issue the following:
Quote:
sqlplus system/{password}@XE

I am told this should work out of the box like this but I get the following error:
Quote:
ORA-12541: TNS:no listener

and then it asks for user-name again.
From assorted articles here and elsewhere, I then changed HOST from "projectvm.vps.local" to "127.0.0.1" in listener.ora:
Quote:
# listener.ora Network Configuration File:

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
(SID_LIST =
(SID_DESC =
(SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
(ORACLE_HOME = /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server)
(PROGRAM = extproc)
)
)

LISTENER =
(DESCRIPTION_LIST =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC_FOR_XE))
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 127.0.0.1)(PORT = 1521))
)
)

DEFAULT_SERVICE_LISTENER = (XE)

and tnsnames.ora
Quote:
# tnsnames.ora Network Configuration File:

XE =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 127.0.0.1)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVER = DEDICATED)
(SERVICE_NAME = XE)
)
)

EXTPROC_CONNECTION_DATA =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC_FOR_XE))
)
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SID = PLSExtProc)
(PRESENTATION = RO)
)
)


for good measure I then:
Quote:
lsnrctl stop
lsnrctl start

From the way that Oracle is installed, there is an error:
Quote:
NL-00280: error creating log stream /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/network/log/listener.log
NL-00270: cannot open log file
SNL-00016:snlfohd: error opening file
Linux Error: 13: Permissions denied

So I logged in as user:oracle (the user that seems to have permissions for this file) and entered:
Quote:
lsnrctl start

Different errors this time:
Quote:
Started with pid=3890
Error listening on: (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=IPC)(KEY=EXTPROC_FOR_XE)))
TNS-12555: TNS:permission denied
TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
TNS-00525: Insufficient privilege for operation
Linux Error: 1: Operation not permitted

Now from other notes I went in and:
Quote:
chown /var/tmp/.oracle

This seemed to fix the above error when starting the listener. However, now when I issue this command:
Quote:
sqlplus system/{password}@XE

I get this error when logged in as "root" or "oracle":
Quote:
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor

I have been battling this error for some time and not finding any issues with the suggested files. Any errors in the work that I have done so far and any suggestions for next steps.

Thanks,
Allan

The only thing that the root user should do involving Oracle is a single invocation of root.sh as part of the installation process!

All other administration operations, starting or stopping the listener or the database, should be done as the owner of the Oracl s/w tree; usually "oracle".

Log onto the system as the Oracle s/w owner & do the following:
env | sort -o /tmp/oracle.env
lsnrctl status
lsnrctl start
lsnrctl status
sqlplus
/ as sysdba
startup
select * from v$version;
exit
cat /tmp/oracle.env

Now using CUT & PASTE show the session doing all the commands & the results

I see 2 problem areas.
1) (HOST=127.0.0.1)
I do not believe SQL*Net works against this IP#
2) SQL> startup
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [keltnfy-ldmInit], [46], [1], [], [], [], [], []
You need to find & fix the underlying cause of this ORA-00600
which is typically a Service Request to Oracle

Thank you so much. While troubleshooting some other problems, someone's notes said to use 127.0.0.1. Changed that to the computer name in the listener and tnsnames files and it looks like it is working!

I do not see any errors but for:
"PLSExtProc", status UNKNOWN


Thanks again. I might start enjoying Oracle Cool
