You have Oracle on a Solairs Container running Solairs 9. You try to startup the instance but the startup is failing with the following error in the alert log :

Wed Apr 29 15:05:21 2009
Starting ORACLE instance (normal)
Wed Apr 29 15:05:22 2009
Errors in file /export/home/applstg3/10.2.0/admin/ethan/udump/ethan_ora_26317.trc:
ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump [strncmp()+40] [SIGSEGV] [Address not mapped to object] [0x6E7375706002] [] []

And the stack trace for the error is something like :

ksedmp <- ssexhd <- sigacthandler <- strncmp <- sxor_check_cputype <- sxorquery <- ksuxorosdinit <- kscnfy <- ksmcsg <- opistr_real <- opistr <- opiodr <- ssdgetcall <- ssdgetcall <- ttcpip <- opitsk <- opiino <- opiodr <- opidrv <- sou2o <- opimai_real
