I´m trying to install Oracle 8.1.6 on a HP-UX 11.00 (64-bit)box but I keep getting an "Out of memory" error on the make.log file during the relinking phase (precisely at the ioracle64 target, makefile ins_rdbms.mk). I have an L1000 with 1GB of RAM and all the recommended patches described on the Oracle Installation Guide. I´ve also noticed that the Oracle Installer program is sucking up a lot of RAM through the installation process, this seems rather odd. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Any input will be greatly appreciated.
Looks something to do with configuring semaphores. Have a look at the folowing posts to have an idea what Iam talking about.

Solved the problem.
mhaller: the kernel parameter did the job. Thanks a lot!
