I am receiving an error while installing Oracle 8.1.7 on a p650, AIX5.3. While running the rootpre.sh I recieved the following error:

#./rootpre.sh
Installing kernel extension...

Oracle Kernel Extension Loader for AIX
Copyright (c) 1998,1999 Oracle Corporation

Kernel Extension Version: 3

nkext ver: 3
./rootpre.sh[199]: crash: not found.

is not loaded : 1
No post-wait kernel is loaded on the machine.

Copying new kernel extension.

kmid: 0 (0x0)

libpath: ''

--------------------------------------------------------

I try to avoid "./rootpre.sh[199]:crash:not found" error by edit rootpre.sh file the following:

line:199
PKEXT_PATH=`echo le | crash | grep pw | awk '{print $2}'`

change to:
PKEXT_PATH=`echo lke | kdb | grep pw | awk '{print $6}'`

And then, I recieved the following error:


#./rootpre.sh

I've installed the same software on p620 server(AIX 4.3.3) without any issues.

How can I solve this problem ?

Are you sure that Oracle 8i are tested for AIX 5.3??? Verify.

You need patch 2896876 to install oracle 8.1.7 for AIX 5.3.
