Hello...I am trying to install 10g R2 on Solaris 10..I have come across this error:

Checking operating system version: must be 5.8, 5.9 or 5.10. Actual 5.10
Passed

checking Temp space: must be greater than 250 MBKilled
. Actual 19771 MB Passed

Checking swap space: 0 MB available, 500 MB required. Failed <<<<

Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors. Actual 16777216 Passed

Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before

...using the oracle id ....

when trying to install under root..the pre reqs complete correctly other than it saying I cannot install under root..so I am suspecting its something to do with this particular id....

PLEASE HELP...

Thanks
Karim

When all else fails, Read The Fine Manual
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/install.102/b15697/toc.htm
& do EXACTLY what is says.

>I did do Exactly what it states
It clearly explains how to check & establish sufficient swap space.
It appears you neglected to do so before invoking runInstaller.

Be careful, swap space is handled differently between Linux and Solaris. Verify your swap space with 'swap -l' and check Adding Swap space on Solaris.

Is this a question or not?
If it is a question then I don't think posting a Windows question in an Unix forum will give you an answer.
If it is not, I don't see what's the point of your post.
