Thanks for your help i was able to successfully install database on Powerbook
In case if i want to start and stop the database any idea how can i do it.Incase if i shut down machine database services gonna stop.Ho do i restart it.
Let me know.
Now, this is the same message I received way back before someone figured out the relinking problem. So, I switched to gcc 3.3 and relinked everything but it hasn't helped. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I am running into the OC4J problem, but that is less a concern at this point as getting the database actually running.
Has any found a solution for this problem.... missing kumainglobals on Tiger. I'm an online student in database apps at CPCC and need to install Oracle on my Mac. I have installed 9i (recommended by non-Mac professor) and get the same error msg. when I try to log into the database. Any help suggestions would be appreciated.
this is my sequence....

Forget about 9i on tiger.
10gR1 works but after installation of the software you have some extra work. Just follow the instructions <http://ronr.blogspot.com/2005/05/how-to-run-oracle-10gr1-on-tiger.html>
Yes, I really wonder what oracle is going to do. Since 10gR1 a few details changed
1) 10.3 -> 10.4 : lots of API changes
2) PPC -> Intel
3) Big Endian -> Little Endian
4) renewed Sun/Oracle aliance
Also some questions like will the servers also be included in the intel transition ?
If so, when ?
Given the quality of the 10gR1 on such a new platform I certainly hope it gets a follow-up. Oracle did a very good job in the porting effort. It would be a pity if they throw that away. As always it is the money that rules. If there are enough licences sold the mac will stay. Question is: are there enough oracle users on mac. Oracle has stopped development on more platforms in the past ...
There is one vital peace of information missing.
Before you cd to $ORACLE_HOME/lib, do:
ORACLE_SID =  ? <the name you entered in the database field during installation>
Cannot locate ORACLE_HOME. # You can ignore this but, you'll get the next question
ORACLE_HOME =  ? <enter the location were you installed oracle, the bin and lib directories are here>
You may get some more messages, but the point is that this will set your ORACLE_HOME and PATH environment correctly.
