Is the agent software going into the oraInventory folder or is it going in another directory such as /app/oracle. If so please check permissions on that folder and touch a file to ensure you have permissions

Hi all,

I exhausted all ideas...
I have an oracle user that I am using to install client on Linux server. I am using the following command:

./runInstaller -silent -force -debug -responseFile /home/oracle/client/response/ clientadmin.rsp

the output is as following:

SEVERE:OUI-10037:Unable to set up inventory. You may not have the proper permissions. Begin forwarded message:

Oracle user has permissions to read, write and execute everything from the folder.;.

oracle_at_median:~$ ls -lt -h
total 457M

drwxrwxrwx 2 oracle dba   29 2009-08-11 10:10 oraInventory
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 457M 2009-08-10 13:56
drwxr-xr-x 6 oracle dba   95 2005-07-02 13:13 client

I really don't get what is going on and what it needs in order to proceed. Please, share any ideas should you have them at all.
