This is problematic, I installed Oracle 9i in a Redhat Linux 9, patched the error (linker errors) and installed everything.

However, netca wont run with errors:

libclntsh.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (libnjni9.so)
Error loading native library: libnjni9.so.
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: jniGetOracleHome
        at oracle.net.common.NetGetEnv.getOracleHome(NetGetEnv.java)
        at oracle.net.ca.CmdlineArgs.setOraArgs(CmdlineArgs.java)
        at oracle.net.ca.NetCA.<init>(NetCA.java)
        at oracle.net.ca.NetCA.main(NetCA.java)

can someone have an idea on this?

Can you check the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to see if the lib path is there

The libnjni9.so is found in two locations in a 9i installation,
$ORACLE_HOME/lib and $ORACLE_HOME/lib32.

There are two workarounds available:
1st: Before starting NetCA unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
     start netca.

     Be aware $ORACLE_HOME/lib32 has to be the first path here.
     continue with:

     Within $ORACLE_HOME/bin/netca uncomment the
     following four lines:The libnjni9.so is found in two locations in a 9.0.1
$ORACLE_HOME/lib and $ORACLE_HOME/lib32.

For example:

find . -name "libnjni9.so" -print


If the LD_LIBRARY_PATH includes the $ORACLE_HOME/lib but not
$ORACLE_HOME/lib32 that is probably the problem.  Add the
$ORACLE_HOME/lib32 to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

      case $SET_DEFAULT_VAR in "YES")
         export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

     start netca.
