When using the oracle(81701) install on a xfs filesystem, the install fails
as it attempts to read/write state files.  

Oracle installs readily on reiser and ext2 fs

Pertinent info:
linux-xfs (11 05 2001)

using lvm and xfs
parition is 4GB

info from installActions.log

Unable to read /oracle/oraInventory/Contents/CompsList0.ser. Some inventory 
information may be lost.
Unable to read /oracle/oraInventory/Contents/PatchesList0.ser. Some inventory 
information may be lost.

Miscellaneous problem
Unable to read /oracle/oraInventory/Contents/OracleHomesList.ser. Some 
inventory information may be lost.
Unable to read /oracle/oraInventory/Contents/LibsList.ser. Some inventory 
information may be lost.

The workaround is to install oracle on ext2 fs, and then cpio over to the xfs 
fs.
