    If SGA is fragmented in the memory and the database is shutdown with ABORT mode, then the system may be freezed.

    After you start the instance, run the following Unix command:
    ipcs -b

    Under shared memory if you see 2 or more segments for oracle, then the SGA is fragmented.

    Check your /etc/system file once again. And change according to Oracle recommendation for LINUX OS.
