it looks to me like your $ORACLE_HOME = $ORACLE_BASE. Not sure how that happened. changes file permissions and will set up the oraenv script. I don't believe it ever changed the ORACLE_HOME env var.

I don't know if anyone else can help you, but i'd need more info, if i was going to be more useful. Version of Oracle and O/S would be a start.

Subject: $ORACLE_HOME without subdirs/version number and what does exactly

Hi folks
I installed my first oracle client. Why my oracle home is something like $ echo $ORACLE_HOME
and not for example /opt/app/oracle/product/10.2.1 (with subdirs and ersion number). Did I do something wrong during installation? I didn't run the script /opt/app/oracle/, but sqlplus onnection is working fine. What does the do exactly? What are onsequences if not run?
