You're right, Niall. I was trying to install When I tried on this NFS mount point, runInstaller ran fine, and different mount options make no difference. When I pass -debug to runInstaller (, it shows errors "No zipfiles found." and if I check the files from where I launch runInstaller, they're indeed in a wrong path. (But maybe the process already changed directory in the middle?) Anyway, running OUI from a local filesystem works and 11g OUI has no such problem. I don't want to pursue further. Thanks.
