I have down this hundreds of times, but this is the 1st time I have seen this problem & am out of ideas.
I know the problem is PEBKAC, but I don't know how to solve it.
OS user "oracle" owns the whole directory tree.
[root@sp07 10.2.0]# uname -a
Linux sp07.hitbox.com 2.6.9-34.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Mar 8 00:27:03 CST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
The "root" OS user has run $ORACLE_HOME/root.sh

When user "oracle" invokes sqlplus, it just "hangs".

Running strace against the sqlplus process show many line like:
times(NULL) = -1853244925
times(NULL) = -1853244925
times(NULL) = -1853244925
times(NULL) = -1853244925
times(NULL) = -1853244925
times(NULL) = -1853244925

The environment for OS user "oracle" is as follows:
<bid1-oracle@sp07.hitbox.com:/a/oracle/product/10.2.0/bin:> env | sort

<bid1-oracle@sp07.hitbox.com:/a/oracle/product/10.2.0/bin:>

I've done:
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all
& did not see any errors

Any ideas on what needs to change to allow sqlplus to work would be greatly appreciated

<bid1-oracle@sp07.hitbox.com:/b/oracle:> uptime
13:35:54 up 233 days, 21 min, 6 users, load average: 0.02, 0.02, 0.00

but everything else closely matches what is in Note:338461.1

Now I am off to find the patch & install it.

THANKS!

The developer was VERY impatient & bounced the box.
The patch requires an SR, but since the box was bounced I can no longer reproduce the problem.
This fix belongs to the Micro$oft school of s/w development.
Ctl-Alt-Del

Thanks Again!
