Hello, I have upgraded 7 Unix Solaris 5.10 Boxes from to and applied recommend patches. All upgrades worked with the exception of one server. One server won't start the listener. I get the following:
35% lsnrctl start

LSNRCTL for Solaris: Version - Production on 11-AUG-2008 10:17:31
Copyright (c) 1991, 2007, Oracle. All rights reserved. Starting /oracle/BWD/102_64/bin/tnslsnr: please wait... TNS-12537: TNS:connection closed
 TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
  TNS-00507: Connection closed
   Solaris Error: 29: Illegal seek

I have searched and the only thing I can find is related to Oracle 8 and Windows:
add localhost.(domain) localhost to /etc/hosts.

I did this with no luck.

I have two instances of Oracle on this one machine. One listener works, the other doesn't.
I have done the following :
./relink all

cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/lib
make -f install
make: Fatal error: Can't find `': No such file or directory

The port used by the listener is 1521 and netstat -an |grep 1521 reports port not in use.

I've changed listener.ora with tracing and nothing seems obvious.

trace_level_listener = 16
trace_file_listener = listener
trace_timestamp_listener = on
trace_filelen_listener = 100
trace_fileno_listener = 2
