Dear All,

My current os version is
[root@ashprd-host etc]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.9 (Tikanga)


When I am trying to execute runInstaller, it gives error. I am following the below site to configure for development database
http://emarcel.com/installing-oracle-database-11g-r2-on-linux-with-asm/



[grid@ashprd-host grid]$ ./runInstaller

Display is also mentioned in profile

[grid@ashprd-host grid]$ echo $DISPLAY
192.168.205.128:0.0


Please provide your valuable inputs.

You could ask the author of the article, you know. Otherwise, you need to prove that you X-esrver is actually working. What X-server are you running? Can it display, for example, the xclock?

root cause & fix are external to Oracle.
Problem & solution have NOTHING to do with Oracle, but external OS configuration.
OUI utilizes X-Windows (& $DISPLAY)
a quick test is $DISPLAY is correct is to launch xclock.
if xclock succeeds, the OUI has a chance to succeed.
solution depends upon steps of how & where OS user logged onto OS prior to invoking "runInstaller"

Dear All,

I am executing the command on linux server itself, which is having GUI. We will try to execute it through other 3rd party tool (ie - x-manager).

Regards,
Ashish

if/when xclock fails, then OUI fails

does xclock work for you?
