Appended below are 4 files which are a insserv-safe version of the Oracle instance startup script, modified to take advantage of the "standard" Yast features and /etc/sysconfig support. I also split up the database startup and the SQL*net startup by putting each into a separate script and adding a dependency on the database startup for sqlnet to initialize. All the configuration variables are pulled out into /etc/sysconfig files, and you can edit them individually with the YaST sysconfig editor.
fsiucv provides the ability to connect to arbitrary VM CP and CMS IUCV-based services from Linux applications. Each IUCV connection is presented to the Linux system as a device, with semantics similar to that of a serial connection. Data can be read from or written to the IUCV connection using simple shell tools, or can be handled using the standard Unix/POSIX file manipulation tools and APIs. Configuration of the driver is handled using the sysfs interface, and both local and distributed IUCV are supported.
This package provides a simple Linux client and a VM disconnected virtual machine allowing Linux applications to mount and manage tapes hosted by a z/VM systems.
