it's allways nice when people are willing the share their experiences. What's the problem with Enterprise Manager ? and what do you mean with Enterprise Manager ? Do you mean the db console or the standalone java OEM ?

Ok all, I have taken the downgrade route hoping this would be the fix-all, however it didn't work as planned.
During the install i recieved the following:
gcc -o /Volumes/oracle/db/sysman/lib/nmupm -L/Volumes/oracle/db/lib/ -L/Volumes/oracle/db/sysman/lib/ `cat /Volumes/oracle/db/lib/sysliblist` -L/V

So I chose to continue the install assuming I could go back and relink something or make something to fix the problem.
My only problem is: I am not a unix admin nor a programmer and I have no idea how to link or make or anything like that. Would someone please help me with a simple 6th grade type explanation of what I need to do next?
Shame on Oracle for such an unprofessional installation process.
Windows, for example, has a complete and very tidy, automated install procedure for the non-tech folks. In order to install on a Mac, it takes the help of undocument procedures, manual unix entries, and much unnecessary work and reinstalls to finally "get it".
OS/X is basically unsupported. One day of Oracle's time is probably all that is needed to cobble together a useful, brainless install script anyone could use.
Then there is the absense of documentation for admin and trouble shooting... need I continue.
Thanks for this forum, otherwise I simply couldn't function. How about it Oracle? Anyone want to step up and do the install script right?
the reaction from oracle I found was that the move to intel could make things easier for their development. Problems might occur when the switch has to be made (data files have always been specific for every platform). Also unclear is what Apple is going to do with the xserve line. Will they be moved to intel ? when ?
For the installation process I agree it is a bit hard at the moment but don't forget how it worked on 10.3.6, the only supported release. That worked out of the box without any problems. The problem is that most of us run on unsupported systems and releases.
The fact that we still can run on tiger does mean oracle did do their thing ok. Maybe it could have been better but how about the current market share ? I know quite a few companies are looking for the mac but to say that the market share is booming ... As allways it's the money that rules ...
Could you please pass me on link or steps to install 10 g data abse on OS 10.4.
Also what are the possible issues that i might face while installing the db
i have spent almost a weekend installing db on 10.4 without any luck
still no luck...
moment i run root.sh
ikeep getting following erro r messgae
Checking the status of Oracle init process...
Expecting the CRS daemons to be up within 600 seconds.
Giving up: Oracle CSS stack appears NOT to be running.
./root.sh: line 788: /System/Library/StartupItems/OracleCRS: is a directory
Oracle CSS service would not start as installed
Automatic Storage Management(ASM) cannot be used until Oracle CSS service is started
any idea how do i fix this up.Its driving me crazy.
however it won't start oracle processes.
How do i proceed further .
If i login to database i get following error message :-
Enter user-name: system
ORA-12162: TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified
Please let me know...
Did you already create a database ?
What do you see when you issue 'pa aux|grep ora_' from the commandline ?
use dbca to create a database. When you do so, take note of what you specify as ORACLE_SID and service_name. You need them later on. If the database is ready issue 'export ORACLE_SID=your_oracle_sid
sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
after this you should be inside.
(if I were you I would start reading some manuals)
This also worked for me. A few additional refinements
- I had to have the entire Xcode2 cd installed. I had installed only part of it and it wasn't working
- relink is stored in $ORACLE_HOME/lib
- the root.sh script will wait for 10 minutes then fail on its last step, and that's totally normal
- I ran the installer with airport off and no network plugged in. It was then set up as localhost, which got me around all of the DHCP headaches.
I ran this on a PowerBook G4 1.25GHz and it took me a half a day to figure out how to get the install going. Once I did get it going though it ran smoothly. On the other hand, running the DBCA took five hours! It works like a charm now, I am so happy!
