Correct an installation error for R/3 Enterprise on Oracle 9.2.0.7

Hello! I'm installing R/3 Enterprise on Sunos 5.10 with Oracle 9.2.0.7.

SAP is stopping the process with an error in the "Database Load (post processing); R3load jobs: finished SAPSDIC" phase. The child process 5160 became a "defunct" process. What do you think? The message is below.

Good question. It looks like SAPinst is unable to fork another process (see output above). This is probably caused by an error on the operating system level -- such as too many processes or no more shared memory. I doubt, however, that this is the first error SAPinst encounters. Have look at the individual R3load log files (such as SAPSDIC.log). One of them probably failed.
