Thanks for the response, but I do have libdl
east# ls -l /compat/linux/lib | grep dl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 65473 Mar 6 2003 libdl-2.2.4.so
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 14 Jul 26 15:25 libdl.so.2 -> libdl-2.2.4.so
for some reason its not seeing it though. One of the first things I did
post-install was enable linux emulation and install dev-tools,
needed it to get my J2SDK and Tomcat up and running.
I also rebuilt the kernel with the Oracle settings for Shared Memory and
do I need to put a -L somewhere in the oracle files, do I need to modify
my LD_INCLUDE_PATH ?
my paths looks like this:
my oracle sources are in /data/oracle/Disk1, I am installing it in /ora
I am hoping to move to 5.3 as soon as I get the chance... but I need
the DBMS online like yesterday
I am thinking this is something small, but since I am a recent convert
to FreeBSD, I just dont know where to look to fix it.
