                As for patching.

                I'm trying to patch r1 to r2.  What a mess.  Didn't
work.  And Metalink doesn't respond.

                I'm hoping to get a release 2 CD and start all over

...this list is HOT with great topics today and it is making it
difficult for me to keep staring at this kernel profile data looking
for this stupid needle in the haystack. I'll tell you oakies about it
in November if I don't bore you to death before then. Anyway, it's 
Friday and I'll catch up, like I always do, on Sat and Sun :-).

Back on thread.  This post makes me ask, is it common out there
to apply patchsets (not a "patch" from r1 to r2 as in th OP)
to functional Oracle Homes?  I should think a safer approach
would be to install a new R1 home, apply R2 to it and if
you are happy, switch over to it by dragging your TNS stuff
over. Or is my views of the common Oracle Home as too
simplistic? That is how I approach it here anyway.  That is,
until we finish implementing our filesystem snapshots in which
case the patchset application process can be as junky as 
anyone could imagine and I wouldn't care. Just revert to a
snapshot and make it writeable... not worries.

Thoughts ?
