I find it hard to believe that this question has come up with EXACTLY the same subject line, in less than a week on this list, and you don't know the answer to it.

Cest la vie, following are the answers that have been posted so far...


ignore this. It's fixed in 816.
(BTW: It's a feature not a bug. If you ever get an ORA-601 without currently time listed in the log and you had to solve this problem you'll love this behaviour :-)


Take all references to MTS out of your init.ora file. Linux doesn't support them and it complains constantly.

This is a known bug in the 8.1.5 version of Oracle on Linux. This is caused by
using Shared server processes in that particular release. You can either comment out all of your mts_* parmeters in your init<SID>.ora file, or you can
upgrade to 8.1.6 which fixes it. It doesn't cause any problems with MTS in that release of Oracle on Linux, but it sure is annoying and makes for a very
large Alert<SID>.log file. Another FYI, there is a patch out for 8.1.5, make
sure you use it.. it makes alot of improvements, I believe it is something like ???? Can't remember.. check in the software

I installed ORACLE816 on the RedHat6.2 and found that every time I started up the oracle, it would
produce a pmon trace file.

the trace file's content is below:

Release:        2.2.14-5.0smp
Version:        #1 SMP Tue Mar 7 21:01:40 EST 2000
Machine:        i686

Instance name: mydb
Redo thread mounted by this instance: 0 <none> Oracle process number: 2
Unix process pid: 808, image: oracle_at_mydb (PMON)

Can anyone help me to explain and solve this?

Thanx in advance.
