Hi,

While running ./runInstaller on Linux 9 I get following error---

"The user is root. OUI cann't continue installation if the user is root."

I have set all the Oracle and linux parameters like- oracle_sid, path etc. I have also created one user named 'oracle' with following command--

groupadd dba
groupadd oinstall
groupadd oper

useradd -c DBA -g oinstall -G dba oracle

Thanks.

>>"The user is root. OUI cann't continue installation if the user is root."
seems you are trying to do the installation as root user.

connect as user which you created for runing and then start installation.
