Hi,

i've installed a oracle 10g XE Database on my Debian lenny system. the installation process runs without any problems, also the configuration runs perfect.

after the login to sqlplus and startup command i get this error:

SQL> startup
ORACLE instance started.

Total System Global Area  134217728 bytes
Fixed Size                  1257404 bytes
Variable Size              96469060 bytes
Database Buffers           33554432 bytes
Redo Buffers                2936832 bytes
ORA-00205: error in identifying control file, check alert log for more info

i've looked into the config for the location of the control file, but there are no config files

SQL> SHOW PARAMETERS control_files

NAME                                 TYPE        VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
control_files                        string      /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/
                                                 product/10.2.0/server/dbs/ora_
                                                 control1, /usr/lib/oracle/xe/a
                                                 pp/oracle/product/10.2.0/serve
                                                 r/dbs/ora_control2

so i tried to create them with this result:

SQL> CREATE CONTROLFILE REUSE SET DATABASE DEFAULT RESETLOGS;
CREATE CONTROLFILE REUSE SET DATABASE DEFAULT RESETLOGS
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01503: CREATE CONTROLFILE failed
ORA-01565: error in identifying file '?/dbs/dbs1@.dbf'
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status
Linux Error: 2: No such file or directory
Additional information: 3


i've search the whole internet since days and haven't found any solution. maybe somebody can help me on this.

Do BOTH the controlfiles exist?
 

/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/dbs/ora_control1, 
/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/dbs/ora_control2
