    Can I Apply Patch Without A Database?

    I've recently installed Oracle 9i Database (64 bit) Release 2 ( on my Solaris 2.8 system. I have not created a database yet.
    Can I install the Patch Set Version to my system without a database?
    I am aware that there is a later patch, but I want to install this one first.
    I have already upgraded the O.U.I. to version

    I believe that this is the best way to do a patch. Cause once you have a DB, then running catpatch on evry database associated to that home is tedious.

    Another question on: 9.2.03 and

    I have a telecom schema with hundreds of tables & triggers ........

    If I create a DB with all standard features - especially XML XDB schema, i find that my full export always fails. Or rather, it hangs while exporting triggers and stays stuck there.

    My workaround has been to create a DB without the XML XDB schema
    and everything works fine.

    Has anybody encountered this problem before. did not fix this problem.
