Dear all,



I appreciate if you could kindly guide me to solve the following problem.
I'm trying to install Oracle11g Enterprise on a Linux system (Redhat Enterprise 5.3).
There is no X system, and therefore I chose to install by using a response file
in silent mode. I set the parameters value as indicated in Oracle installation
guide. Yet, when I launch the installer, it seems that there is a problem with
java:

[oracle@ccsaplinux0002 database]$ ./runInstaller -responseFile /usr/local/oracle/database/responseFileV01.rsp -silent
Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

I looked in the oracle package that I downloaded, there was no jdk or jre direcotry.
As a result I downloaded the JDK 1.6.0_15 available on Sun microsystem web site and then
I set manually in oracle user ~/.bash_profile the value for $JAVA_HOME.

Why I get this error?

Thanks in advance,

Kind Regards,
Dariyoosh

Linux on Itanium?
If so, it is a documented bug with previous versions.

Hello there,


Thanks for your attention to my problem.


Actually, I'm not an expert on computer hardware.All I know (when looking at the windows Control Panel) is that I have a HP
PC with Intel(R) Core(TM) Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 2.39GHz.

I had already installed without any problem the very release
of Oracle 11g on the same machine but with ubuntu 8.10 instead of
Redhat Enterprise (And I used Oracle 11g on that system for
several months without any problem).

Now, what is different is that, this time I have created a
virtual machine, with Sun Virtualbox, and as a result Windows XP
is the host and linux the guest (I just want to do a few tests
before installing as a native system in our Enterprise).

On the virtual machine configuration, the virtualization processor
is indicated as VT-x/AMD-v.

While was googling, I found a thread in a forum, indicating that
this is related to Java.



Regards,
Dariyoosh

Hello everybody,


Finally the I found the answer. Because there is no X server installed, we have to run


$ su oracle
passwd
$ DISPLAY=<here you write the machine hostname>:0.0; export DISPLAY
