Mandrake 8.2 + ORA-03113 [message #98675] Fri, 31 May 2002 01:48 Go to next message

I installed Oracle 8.1.7 on my Mandrake 8.2
Trouble is I cannot create any database on it either automatically with dbassist or manually through svrmgr.

Each time I get the following error : ORA-03113 - end-of-file on communication channel.
I installed Oracle with the minimal settings so that I was sure all required files would be installed but still i get the error.

I would really appreciate some help !!!

Thank you !!

Did you try downloading the glibc libraries from the oracle site? They should be located around where you download the 8.1.7 database. I had the same problem on redhat. After it asks you to run that root.sh script, I unpacked the library at $ORACLE_HOME/lib/ and it created the $ORACLE_HOME/lib/stubs directory. Then I ran the shell script that was in that directory. After that, the install went smooth.

I am using oracle on redhat linux 7.2. My database crashed and I rebooted the linus server. When I started the database, I got this ORA-03113 error.

Here r my commands....

[[oracle@xamot]]$ sqlplus "/ as sysdba"

SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Tue Oct 15 00:07:31 2002

Copyright (c) 1982, 2002, Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.

Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> startup nomount pfile='/u01/app/oracle/product/db/';
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel

What hould be the problem. Is there a way to start the database. I don't mind losing the data. If possible can anybody tell me, how to start or to create a new instance? What are the changes I should make if I create a new instance? Thanx much for the effort.

Here is the stub mentioned by Troy.


$tar -zxvf glibc-2.1.3-stubs.tar.gz
to unzip it locally. It will extract an lib library, just copy the contenst of lib over $ORACLE_HOME/lib, e.g.
$cp -R lib/* $ORACLE_HOME/lib

And run the shell script
$ ./setup_stubs.sh
