ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress

I keep on getting this error when i shutdown my vm improperly.
ERROR:
ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress
SP2-0751: Unable to connect to Oracle.

Very simple solution is to do below –

> login as sysdba
$sqlplus sys/password@SERVICE as SYSDBA
SQL> recover database until cancel;
SQL> alter database open resetlogs;

Let me know if this doesn’t work for you…

[solved]Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found. Software being installed: Perforce Python Time-lapse View Support (DLTK Prerequisite) 2013.1.788968 (com.perforce.team.python.helios.feature.feature.group 2013.1.788968) Missing requirement: Perforce Python Time-lapse View Support (DLTK Prerequisite) 2013.1.788968 (com.perforce.team.python.helios.feature.feature.group 2013.1.788968) requires ‘org.eclipse.dltk.python.core 1.0.0’ but it could not be found

Below works for Eclipse Juno 3.8.2

First install Python DLTK

Then carry on to installing perforce installation using Eclipse Market Place.

Hope it helps someone.
