Database creation fails

Hi,
I am having Oracle 9.2 running on Redhat Linux 9. When I am trying to create database  using dbca I get X window interface asking about different parameters. Since I am new to Oracle I selected general purpose database and kept most of the selection to default except   the location of archivedlog to seperate local filesystem (not $OARACLE_HOME).
When I clicked on "Finish" a seperate X windows interface opens showing the status bar.

When status bar reaches 12% I get error

"oversubscribed dynamic bit lengths tree"  

What is wrong and how can I fix it ?
Thanks

Might be a problem with CD-ROM drive.

I dont see where CDROM comes into picture, dbca is located on $ORACLE_HOME/bin

CDROM comes into the picture from the error and the fact that dbca was ran during the install.
As for sugestions, did you try running dbca from $ORACLE_HOME/bin ?

Hi  boriskalavsky,
Thanks for your reply. Sorry for not being clear I did not run dbca during installation. In fact its week after installation I ran  dbca.
I logged in as oracle and ran dbca. My `pwd` was not  $ORACLE_HOME/bin when I ran this command becasuse $ORACLE_HOME  in my $PATH.

Check oraInstall.err log and system log at the time of the error.

I belive that this error indicates that dbca is unable to read files.

I think this error has to do with how Oracle linked the executables.  Did you edit the $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh and take change LD_SELF_CONTAINED="-z defs" to LD_SELF_CONTAINED=""?  After that you should run "genclntsh", followed by "relink all" to clear up the binaries that were linked improperly.

LD_SELF_CONTAINED is commented in $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh
#LD_SELF_CONTAINED="-z defs"

Commenting the line out may be different than unset or setting the variable to null, if the variable was used once already in the environment that Oracle is trying to use.  I would try uncommenting it, and blanking that out, then running the relink.

Most of the steps are outlined here: http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.shtml

I think your problem definately has to do with incorrectly linked executables, as the original error message that you had is actually a problem with zlibs.

I havent tried your solution yet but after some googling it seems the problem with zlib but the solution was unknown.
So definitly I am trying your method . Thank you

Sorry folks  some or the other new error comes up with dbca. I tried all method I finally  give up. I created database manually. Looks like it worked well except for a small glitch I suppose.
