[suse-oracle] ORA-27123 SUSE 9 Oracle 10g

Paul Hepworth



Here is my setup:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

I have looked through some tutorials and have managed to install Oracle. I
have also used the hack to get round the HUGETLBFS issue.

My problem is that I get ORA-27123 Unable to attach shared memory segment
when I run the database configuration assistant to setup a general database.

I have exactly the same setup on another box and this is working now without

I've read people suggesting to check the memory setup via .tstshm and both
boxes return exactly the same figures, just one works and the other

Any ideas?
