    Its totally a new dtabase what I am trying to create.

    This is the error its showing.

    ORA-24324: service handle not initialized
    ORA-01041: internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist

    I have installed OEL 5 linux on Vmware running on windows 7 host.

    Stop what you are doing and exit sqlplus.

    How are you trying to create this database? Please provide all of the steps you have done to get this far.

    When we see what got you here we can better address how to 'fix' the issue.
