I've noticed the problem with Oracle scripts such as dbstart. It tries something like "cat /etc/oratab". Here's what I get from the oracle account (oratab is in /compat/linux/etc): oracle-bsd> ls /etc/oratab /etc/oratab oracle-bsd> cat /etc/oratab cat: /etc/oratab: No such file or directory oracle-bsd> which cat /bin/cat oracle-bsd> echo $SHELL /compat/linux/bin/bash _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
