hey guys !

<i>i havent read any documentation before doin this</i>

i am using designer 6i on oracle 8.1.6.
i installed the goods properly.
created the repos with the user des61
i granted the dba role to this des61 guy !
i also granted some explicit priveleges :
1) select any table
2) execute any procedure
3) execute on dbms_lock
now when i start my des 6i , i get the message
------------------------------------------------------
Message
