RMAN not working at command prompt

I am getting an error with RMAN. When I type rman on command prompt, I am not getting any response, no error and no RMAN prompt.

I am getting an error with RMAN. The platform is Linux, and the Oracle version is 9.2.0.4.0. When I type rman on command prompt, I am not getting any response, no error and no RMAN prompt. What would be the cause?
Something must be holding up the RMAN executable. You can use truss to see the system calls to try to get an idea of what is tying things up. Another thing to try is to relink the Oracle executables:
cd $ORACLE_HOME
relink all
If that does not fix the problem, then open up a Service Request with Oracle Support.
