Hi All,

I was trying to uninstall oracle 9207 on my development server. But when i run the runInstaller from the directory /ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin it gives the following error.

$ runInstaller
Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be 5200 or 5100
Failed <<<<

Exiting Oracle Universal Installer, log for this session can be found at /tmp/OraInstall2007-04-11_03-32-52PM/installActions2007-04-11_03-32-52PM.log


Kindly help me to uninstall the oracle without any error.

Thanks in advance
