unable to specify DISPLAY in
usr/openwin/bin/xpdyinfo

If you don't have 'n network card you can only use the loopback interface. Try:

DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 
export DISPLAY

You need to set the variable after switching to the oracle user (at least, check if it is still set).

Hi,

Can I please know how you resolved your 'Display 256 problem' as I am having the problem.

Actually, I follow the installation process in the Oracle Installation guide for Solaris x86 and when I execute the ./runInstaller

it starts the prerequisite checks and stops at the 'Checking monitor' bit.

I have set the display env variable as follows:
DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
export DISPLAY

as the oracle user and its still does not work.

The configuration of my system is as follows:
a. Intel Pentium D 5.6GHz with Dual L2 Cache
- 2.8GHz x 2 (2 Cores Running @ 2.8GHz) = 5.6GHz
- 64bit CPU Backwards compatibility with 32Bit
VIA P4M900 1066MHz PCI-EXpress Motherboard

b. Chipset -
- North Bridge: VIA P4M900
- South Bridge: VIA VT8237A

c. Graphics - Integrated Chrome9TM HC IGP
- Share Memory: Maximum up to 256MB

d. Memory - 2048MB DDR2 667MHz PC5300 RAM Memory
- Memory Configuration: DDR2 200Pin DIMM
- Memory Chip Stack: 64*8
- Transfer Bus: 667MHz
- Rating: PC5300

e. Storage - Maxtor 250GB Serail ATA 2.0 with 8MB Cache
- Transfer Rate = 3GB/s
- Rotational SPeed = 7200 RPM


I googled and found I may need to download and install Xfree86 which I did. Actually, I downloaded, installed and configured using 'kdmconfig'.

It still doesnt work.

I will appreciate HELP.

Thanks in advance.

You do NOT have an Oracle problem.
You have a Solaris SA problem.
Unless & until the xclock utility shows you the correct time, OUI will not run.

Use DISPLAY command as a root and
export as a user oracle.
