You need to configure your listener before you can start it.

Look into:

You will find a few text files.

You need one called: listener.ora
Should look something like this:
        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = comp_name)(PORT = 1521))
        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCPS)(HOST = comp_name)(PORT = 2484))

    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /my/oracle/home)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = myGlobalName)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /my/oracle/home)
      (SID_NAME = mySID)
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = OEMREP.myGlobalName.my.domain.name)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /my/oracle/home)

You may have something more or something less.

If it dosen't exist you can use the listener.template or something to create one. Or create it manually.

You can also use orcle configuration assistant to do it, this is graphical java app like the installer.

Hope this helps

PS! It would help some if tell me what error you get when trying to start the listener. D.S.
