Hi, I was trying to bring up Oracle10 on FreeBSD 5.2.1, but I get TNS:lost contact again when I "connect / as sysdba". Ktrace tells me that one of the last things that oracle does before exit(1), is trying to open /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax. That is apparently not implemented by linprocfs. Did anyone get farther than this? -- Regards, Georg.
