I installed "Oracle10g" on "Redhat Entierprise 4 Linux".

To start sqlplus, ". oraenv" command should be run.
This command promts for "ORACLE_SID" from user.
Every time I have to run ". oraenv" commnad to start sqlplus.
Then, I run ". .bash_profile"
After this sqlplus is working fine.

Instead of that, I directly set "ORACLE_SID=orcl" in "/usr/local/bin/oraenv"
and called ". oraenv" from "/etc/profile"
Then, I run ". .bash_profile"
After this sqlplus is working fine.

After doing this, I started machine, It shows error

"INIT: id "x" respwaning too fast- disabled for 5 minites" and machine hanges.

Why this error encountered?

A "respawning too fast" message generally means that something in the system's /etc/inittab file is being started up (spawned), and dies. The inittab processor then attempts to spawn it again and again and realizes that there's a problem, so it tells you about it. The most common inittab respawns are for getty listeners, but in your case, it's probable that the X11 xdm task is at fault. You might want to look at the X display manager logs.

That means, what ever settings I am doing for Oracle is not responsible for error, that I encountered?

Shouldn't be directly related, no. It's possible that the install process altered some overall system configuration.

Just a thought. Do you have lots of RAM?

I have RAM of size 1GB.
As required for oracle installation, swap size is double than that of RAM(i.e. 2GB).
