tweaks around Oracle 11g on Hardy 64bit

I did an oracle 11g 64bit install on my 64bit core 2 quad using the resources available on internet and some past experience.

The tutorial here is great :

However, some things still show up after the initial setup is done. Here are bits of my experience -

1. Starting Enterprise manager after a reboot -
Try emctl status agent
The last line of the output should tell you whats happening. If its not running, start it using the following -
emctl start dbconsole
This thanks to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/linux-5-oracle-11g-enterprise-manager-question-616532/

2. The ORACLE_SID variable must be declared in either /etc/profile (for a single database on the system) or on user's local profile.
