Didn't work ...

I just rebooted the system and did a "free". And this is the output:

       total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:   1034000     75684      958316   0         4796        41956
-/+ buffers/cache: 28932      1005068
Swap:  4145128     0          4145128

I guess this should be about enough, just to start a database. Then I connect to oracle (conn / as sysdba) and do a startup.

I get an ORA-03113 again. Any other guesses or tips?

Btw.: When I do a "free" again, 190MB of RAM are used, but still no swap.

Thanks in advance
