Check if the Listener has registered the service:

lsnrctl services

See in alert log file for more details and post them here

I always install Oracle 10g on SuSe 9.
I think you have to read once again the manual how to install 10g on SLES10.
Possibly there are special version of gcc package and also of the other parameters.

MMAN is only needed when using automatic memory management (auto-tuning)

It is known to happen in some cases with larger SGAs with some versions of Oracle on certain OSes. In some cases, reverting to manual sizing fixes it. In some versions, you cannot go over 3GB with auto-tuning, this is an Oracle bug.

Possibly you can try 2 things:

1) Reduce the total SGA_TARGET and/or SGA_MAX_SIZE to a smaller size to see if that helps
2) Revert to traditional manual memory configuration using specific SGA parameters and don't use the SGA_TARGET (must set to 0 to disable auto-tune). This requires that you set the traditional stuff like DB_CACHE_SIZE, SHARED_POOLSIZE, etc.

For the purpose of the PAQ, the Metalink article is not available to unsupported Oracle customers, so for summary, it is an Oracle bug, but there are 3 ways around it, one of which I recommended in the solution, which I am glad, since I did not see the Metalink article until you provided it.

Patchsets are (10.2.0.5 not yet available) or 11.1.0.7 (available) or 11.2 release (not yet available) although there are one-off patches, which I don't like to apply.

Workaround, don't use SGA_TARGET param

Glad to help!
