No, Oracle is running on a plain reiserfs partition.

It runs, but the init.d script doesn't seem to be able to stop it.
I have to kill off everything running as oracle first,

Shouldn't be, as long as it knows which partitions to use.

Konqueror has gotten so clever for its own boots
  that it has forgotten what a web browser is for.
