      Hi,

      I installed vmware 5.5.3 in my desktop and installed RHEL 4 and Oracle 10.2.0.1 on RHEL 4.Created a database and is working fine.But when I tried to start the listener ,i'm getting the following error and the listener did not start.

      TNS-12537: TNS: connection closed
      TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
      TNS-00507: Connection closed
      Linux Error:29:Illegal seek

      I searched for this error in our forums ,but could not find the exact resolution .
      I felt Dale's answer in the below old post is little relevant but I could not understand the exact change that is to be done.
