ORA-03113, ORA-24324 and ORA-01041when trying to start up

I tried to start up the database by issuing the command "startup," and I got the follwoing error:
ORA-03113 end-of-file on communication channel
And the second time I issued the command, I got the following errors:
ORA-24324 service handle not initialized
ORA-01041 internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist
What could be the problem and how to solve it ?
You should check the alert log for messages that will indicate why the database was not able to start. I suspect that one of the background processes panicked and caused a crash during startup. The alert log usually provides useful information in determining the root cause. It could be as simple as a directory not being created or a file access issue.

Its all due to not getting proper lib file. It can be resolved by running below command then start your DB.

cd $ORACLE_HOME/lib/stubs
ln -s  $ORACLE_HOME/lib/stubs/libaio.so  /usr/lib64/libaio.so    
ln -s  $ORACLE_HOME/lib/stubs/libaio.so.1  /usr/lib64/libaio.so.1
