When applying Database October 2010 CPU patch (or any patch for that matter) to the 10.2.0.4, on HP-UX, you might encounter the following errors, when running the opatch utility:

$ opatch napply -skip_subset -skip_duplicate

2) OUI-67200:Make failed to invoke “/usr/ccs/bin/make -f ins_net_client.mk client_sharedlib ORACLE_HOME=/oracle10204home”….’rm: /oracle10204home/lib/libclntsh.so.10.1 not removed.  Text file busy
genclntsh: Failed to remove /oracle10204home/lib/libclntsh.so.10.1

Stop.

3) OUI-67200:Make failed to invoke “/usr/ccs/bin/make -f ins_rdbms.mk client_sharedlib ORACLE_HOME=/oracle10204home”….’rm: /oracle10204home/lib/libclntsh.so.10.1 not removed.  Text file busy
genclntsh: Failed to remove /oracle10204home/lib/libclntsh.so.10.1

Stop.

4) OUI-67124:Re-link fails on target “client_sharedlib”.
Re-link fails on target “client_sharedlib”.

The above error indicates that there are some orphan Oracle sessions, even when you have shutdown the database cleanly.

Find out those sessions at the OS level by running:

$ ps -fu oracle|grep sqlplus
oracle 13694  4346  0  SEP 31  pts/3     0:00 sqlplus

And simply kill that session:

$ kill -9 13694

then run the opatch utility again.
