In attempting to install Oracle 8.1.5 Enterprise Edition on a Solaris 8 box, I am getting the following error:
Error in invoking target of makefile
I understand that there was a jumbo patch for 2.x that was necessary to avoid this error. Has anyone else seen this and is there a patch for Solaris 8 that I need? Is 8.1.5 even certified for use on Solaris 8? I am having trouble finding Release Notes for 8.1.5 on 8, so I am working from the 2.x Release Notes.
Yes, 8.1.5 is certified on Solaris 8 -
2.8 N 8.1.5 (8i) Certified
Existing patch sets: 18.104.22.168
May be the following will help:
Sometimes there are 2 make commands on Solaris. Oracle requires the make command that is installed in the /usr/ccs/bin directory. Do not use the make command /usr/ucb directory. Adjust your PATH variable so that /usr/ccs/bin comes before /usr/ucb
If it doesn't help, check the $ORACLE_HOME/install/make.log for error messages. If you don't see any errors in the make.log, then relink manually by running "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all" utility.
I would also get a full list of Solaris packages you need to have (I know the following for sure: SUNWarc, SUNWbtool, SUNWhea, SUNWlibm, SUNWlibms, SUNWsprot, SUNWtoo)...
Also of cource I would make sure you have no typos in environment variables:
PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH , ORACLE_SID, ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE, TNS_ADMIN...

Patch cluster level for Solaris 8 and Oracle 8.1.5?
Thanks for your response apf!
I am confident that my install was using the /usr/ccs/bin/make file. I have all of the packages you mention. I will try your "relink" idea. But, I believe that I will get the same error. It's worth a try, though!
Does anyone know which (if any) patches or patch clusters might be necessary for a successful Oracle 8.1.5 installation?
Better yet, do any Release Notes for Oracle 8.1.5 on Solaris 8 exist?
You need to set up your kernel parameter shminfo_shmmax to 131072000 in your system. To set up this, you should edit /etc/system file and add a line like:
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=131072000 on the buttom of file then restart your system.
You may need add another line like:
on the buttom of the system file as well.
