I'm running Fedora Core 3 In my terminal I $ sqlplus and I'm prompted for my username and password. No matter what I type in, I get these error messages ORA-01034: ORACLE not available ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist It makes me think I've got my uname and password wrong but I don't - Any ideas???

echo $ORACLE_HOME, $ORACLE_PATH and $PATH. It is likely that your environment is either not set, or is referencing the wrong Oracle Home.
