Hi All,

I am a newbie to installing Oracle on linux

I currently have Red Hat 4.2.2.13 machine.

I have created and mounted my filesystems including

/dev/sda11 --> /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0.1-1.0/db_1


I downloaded /root/oracle-xe-univ-10.2.0.1-1.0.i386.rpm but
I do not know how to proceed from here. What do i do with rpm file ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Also check README.HTML (It's available in your software dump)

Oracle can't connect to the X server to display the GUI.

Fix this on the Linux level, until you can run "xclock" from the same command prompt you start the oracle installer.

Are you doing this locally on the box? Then log into the GUI account (Gnome/KDE/Whatever) with the oracle user.

Are you doing it remotely? Google for X server forwarding

You were right Thomas, all I needed to do was to log into the window platform using oracle id.

Thanks
