I had a problem when i installed oracle 8i on linux. I took the default oracle home which was /home/oracle/OraHome1.
I continued the install and got to the point of the makefile and it came up with errors, I ignored the errors and continued going. Once the install was complete. I typed in sqlplus
but it could not find the library. I tried deinstalling to have it reinstalled.
I tried to create a new directory for the home but it said I have only 402mb space and in it needed 412mb space how could this be I have 9GB hard drive.
I also set my environment variables could someone please send me a copy on the ones they did that worked correctly?
Thanks a lot
thanks all I will try installing using those scripts
I had already installed the database ignoring the make files
now when i try to bring up sqlplus it would not let me. it says a library is missing I am going to update my bash_profile and then try it again
