On HP P-IV 2 MHz, 2 GB RAM, Windows 2000 Server, during installation of Oracle 8.1.5, an error message appears: "unable to allocate 82731112 bytes of shared memory." After this message, the installation is complete. TNSlistener service starts, Services service starts, and it connects with only internal at STARTUP.
There may be a number of reasons why this is happening, but the most obvious is that the shared pool defined for your database is not large enough. Try increasing the SHARED_POOL_SIZE initialization parameter for your database and restart it. Another possibility is to pin frequently used large packages so that they are not aged out.
