hello Fabrizio,

the oracle user on my system has the wrong GID, without 55(dba)

uid=59(oracle) gid=54(oinstall) groups=6(disk),54(oinstall)

after I have changed in the passwd the oracle user to
oracle:x:59:55:Oracle user:/opt/oracle:/bin/bash

/etc/init.d/oracle start

runs perfectly.
Thanks for the help and the complete explanation how oracle check the authentication.
