Hi again, listers!

I had to suspend the test I was doing on AIX 4.3.2 because the = enviroment I
really have to test is Oracle 8.1.5 on AIX 4.3.3 and prove that our applications work without any problems on this enviroment. So, I stopped trying on AIX 4.3.2 and did a clean install of AIX 4.3.3 = once
I got the CD's that were missing yesterday.

So far I got the Operating System installed. Couldn't find the make utility on the installation CD's so I used ftp = to
copy it from the production server (in wich CD am I supposed to look = for

Ok, so far I created the DBA group,=20
created the oracle8 user and included all enviroment variables in = oracle8
executed umask 022,=20
Created the mount_point for the cd and mounted it. Runned the as root.

Connected as oracle8 and tried to execute ./runInstaller with no = success.

I get the following error:

Initializing Java virtual machine from........... Please wait Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server Xlib: Cllient is not authorized to connect to server java.lang.InternalErrror: Can't connect to X11 window server using = ':0.0' as
the value of the DISPLAY variable. ......

I am lost here.

Yesterday I had set that variable just the same and the installer did = run...

the software didn't linked because "make" was missing.... but today I = have
no idea of what am I doing wrong.

Anyone can throw some ligh here????

I have a deadline to show some results and the clock is ticking..=20

please help!

Thanks in advance.
