    Unable to login to sqlplus to do startup on linux server.

      Hi all,

      Linux server, 10.2.0.4.
      Am using the linux server for the last 3 years without any incident then after doing a reboot, errors shown are:

      Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
      Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
      SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle sofware directory.

      Confirmed that ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE,etc are already set.

      When i do the following:
      $cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
      $pwd
      shows that in correct directory.
      $sqlplus

      encountered the above error.

      Confirmed that path in ORACLE_HOME and /etc/oratab are identical.

      Please advise.

      Thanks in advance
      Zack
