The first time I loaded Oracle our sysadmins did not have one of the math libraries loaded. They loaded the missing library. Then I reinstalled on top of what I had installed and got the error below. Then I completely wiped out what was there and installed 8.1.7 from scratch including installing the 8.1.7.4 patch. During this process I did not recieve any errors during the install but still got the error below when I went to use one of the Oracle tools.

The listener seems to start but I can not use any other Oracle binary. It is possible that there is some problem with the operating system.

The missing math library was bos.perf.libperfstat

/usr/oracle/9.2.0.2/bin: lslpp -l bos.perf.libperfstat
lslpp: 0504-132 Fileset bos.perf.libperfstat not installed.

Now it is installed.

I am at a loss as to what is happening. Any relevant help would be appreciated. Thanks.
