Well, there's the definitive answer! As I said, I'd never tried it.

Thanks for the definitive answer, David!

Oracle9i binaries will never run on Centos5 ( RHEL 5/ OEL 5 and actual 2.6 kernels... ) 'cause the kernels that provide this distros have no more the code to support the old ( 2.4 ) kernel threading method ( supported on previous 2.6 with the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 )
