I've having trouble installing the Oracle JVM on an Oracle 
instance on Redhat Linux AS 3.0.  I thought perhaps some of you would 
have ideas.

java_pool and shared_pool are both set well above 100M;

swap space is more than sufficient;

system tablespace has over 500M free space (added to ensure space for 
this case).

As sys:

I run @?/javavm/install/rmjvm

which executes fine.  I then shutdown and restart Oracle, exit the 
session, and reconnect as sys again.

I then execute @?/javavm/install/initjvm

which runs fine and gets to the CREATE JAVA SYSTEM statement.  A trace 
reveals this is running fine.  At some point, however, it begins waiting on:

    db file sequential read

against the


table.  (Found via p1, p2 in v$session_wait.)  Actually, not only the 
same table, but the same /block/.  It doesn't report any errors, nothing 
in the alert log, it just hangs.  I left it over night and after some 
60,000+ seconds of wait it was still sitting there. 

Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this to happen?  
I'll trace further if not, but I thought I'd throw this out there in 
case I'm missing something obvious.
