    Cannot create database after installation

    I Installed Oracle 8.1.7 on Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.6.8.1.
    The only error I received was at the end of the installation, when it attempted to create a database.
    I then tried to create a database manually (using connect internal and then startup nomount), but received the same error:
    Code:
    SVRMGR> connect internal
    Connected.
    SVRMGR> startup nomount
    ORA-27102: out of memory
    Linux Error: 12: Cannot allocate memory
    Additional information: 1
    Additional information: 1048578
    It's a P4 test machine with 512MB ram and these are the current values of shm and sem (I know these values are probably wrong):
    Code:
    # cat /proc/sys/kernel/{shmall,shmmax,shmmni,sem}
    65536
    268435456
    4096
    250     32000   32      128
    # cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max
    65536
    The init.ora :
    Code:
    db_name = "intorcl"
    db_files = 80
    db_file_multiblock_read_count = 8
    db_block_buffers = 100
    shared_pool_size = 3500000
    log_checkpoint_interval = 10000
    processes = 50
    parallel_max_servers = 5
    log_buffer = 32768
    max_dump_file_size = 10240
    global_names = TRUE
    control_files = (ora_control1, ora_control2)
    I tried adding large_pool_size=256000 but then got the following error:
    Code:
    SVRMGR> connect internal
    Connected.
    SVRMGR> startup nomount
    ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
    SVRMGR>
    Code:
    $ cat .bashrc
    umask 022
    unset LANG
    export ORACLE_BASE=/home/oracle
    export ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/8.1.7
    export ORACLE_TERM=vt100
    export ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data
    export ORACLE_SID=intorcl
    export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin
    Any help would be appreciated.
