As a part of Oracle Dbase 10gR2 pre-installation tasks on in SUSE Enterprise Server 10, Iím trying to update oracleís user shell startup file. Oracleís procedure for that is here:
on page 13.
I open the file for editing in vi:
$ vi .profile
and added one line ther as
but when I try to save file with command :wq Iím getting a message:
ď.profileĒ E212: canít open file for writing
when I try to exit vi with command :q the message becomes:
Can't write viminfo file in /home/oracle/.viminfo
while acc to Oracle instructions everything should work OK of course.
Can anyone help me understand what is going on? Iím new to Linux, and I donít even know the name of the file Iím trying to edit [is it really .profile?], let alone its location.
