I have installed Oracle on AIX 5L
but it failed to install lib folder, and keep prompting me error, so i ignored them and let the installation keep going

once the installation completed, and i tried to start Oracle, and it complains that clntsh.o does not exist

does anyone know the error resource, or i have to install any system file in AIX 5L before installing Oracle?

The box either have no enough disk space
or the user 'oracle' has no rights to write in this folder.

Also check the mode (32 or 64 bits):
Oracle Releases for AIX 4.3.3 and AIX 5L:  
The 64-bit ABI in AIX 4.3.3 is not supported under AIX 5L.  
Moving existing 64-bit applications from AIX 4.3.x  to AIX 5L requires  
recompiling the application source code, and possibly changing application  
source code to ensure that data types are used correctly and consistently.
Due to this restriction, starting from 9.2.0 version, Oracle ships different  
CDs for AIX 433 and AIX 5L. Customers should be careful not to use the wrong
CDs, since these two releases are not compatible. This is also the reason why  
the 64-bit versions 9.0.1 and 8.1.7/64 do not run on AIX 5L.
For AIX 5L      -  CD part numbers are A99331-01 to A99334-01
For AIX 4.3.3   -  CD part numbers are A99342-01 to A99345-01
