I AM using Oracle 9.2.0 - or trying to use it. As I wrote, Oracle 8i (8.1.7) worked without any problems, but 9i (9.2.0.1.0 - EE) is a pain in the a$$.

I do it the same way as with the 8.1.7.
I don't have any problems during the installation (ok, a problem with the ins_ctx.mk, but this is fixed by adding "$(LDLIBFLAG)dl"). I use the dbca to create a script for the database and login via "sqlplus /nolog" and do a "conn / as sysdba" and I get a

        Connected to an idle instance

But, if I try to "startup nomount pfile="...";", I get an ORA-03113.

I have applied the 8.1.7-glibc patch at the 9.2.0 version of Oracle, just for testing, but it didn't change anything. I've also done a "relink /all" ... didn't help.

This is my init.ora:

db_block_size=8192
db_cache_size=25165824
db_file_multiblock_read_count=16
	

open_cursors=300

control_files=("/home/oracle/oradata/sc/control01.ctl",

db_domain=""
db_name=sc

background_dump_dest=/home/oracle/admin/sc/bdump
core_dump_dest=/home/oracle/admin/sc/cdump
user_dump_dest=/home/oracle/admin/sc/udump

# I tried to comment this one out, didn't changed # a thing
timed_statistics=TRUE

dispatchers="(PROTOCOL=TCP) (SERVICE=scXDB)"

hash_join_enabled=TRUE
query_rewrite_enabled=FALSE
star_transformation_enabled=FALSE

java_pool_size=83886080
large_pool_size=8388608

# I raised the shared_pool_size, but with no luck. shared_pool_size=83886080

# My /proc/sys/kernel/sem:

# So this shouldn't be a problem

processes=150

fast_start_mttr_target=300

remote_login_passwordfile=EXCLUSIVE

pga_aggregate_target=25165824
sort_area_size=524288

# Tried to set the compatibility
# to 8.1.0 ... didn't work ...
compatible=9.2.0.0.0

undo_tablespace=UNDOTBS1

Any help would be greatly apreciated.
Thanks in advance
