The sqlplus path is the same on myRHEL5 box as it is on my production RHEL3 boxes, but I have just noticed it is an empty file dated:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 oracle dba 0 Jun 30 2005 sqlplus (RHEL5)
-rwxr-xr-x 1 oracle dba 8831 May 17 06:18 sqlplus (RHEL3) This is the same install media for both systems, why would the files be different? Received on Tue May 27 2008 - 19:40:55 CDT
