I found this on Metalinks. It's for a Solaris install, but the errors look the same. You might give it a shot.

Subject: 8.1.5 installation problem

RDBMS Version: 8.1.5
Operating System and Version: Solaris 8
Error Number (if applicable):
Product (i.e. SQL*Loader, Import, etc.): Installer Product Version:

8.1.5 installation problem

While start testing to instal the Oracle 8.1.5 on the Solaris 8, could not start the installer due to DISPLAY env. variable.

The following were done according to the installation guide. $ DISPLAY=hostname:0.0 ; export DISPLAY $ xhost +hostname

runnning xhost gave the FAILED TO CONNECT TO SERVER.

How to overcome this? I'm wondering whether it is due to the Solaris 8 which is not certified for the 8.1.5??

Has anybody successfully installed the 8.1.5 on Solaris 8? Any info. would be appreciated.

You need to enable the client to connect to the XServer as initial login user.
If you have logged in to the machine as root and then su login as oracle user
to install Oracle, you need to run xhost as root user. Open new terminal and

run xhost +.

Ketar and Jaikishan,

It is solved.
Tried from fresh login to oracle owner (instead of su to oracle owner) and it's OK.

Thanks for the response.
