How to install oracle Forms 6 i

Hi friends,

When i try to install oracle Forms 6 i on A180 server it hangs, I think it is a problem with Terminal settings . Oracle install should be run from vt220 ot vt100 but my HP 9000 A180 server gives a term called "dtterm" only. Can i change this TERM varible to some thing else (vt100 or vt220) ?. I tried keeping the following line in .profile and .dtprofile but it did'nt work.

TERM=vt220
export TERM
ORACLE_TERM=vt220
export ORACLE_TERM

Can any body help ?
Thanks in advance

Re: How to install oracle Forms 6 i

Hi there.
I attached a few line for the oracle user.
First the .profile :

# @(#) $Revision: 66.1.1.1 $

# Default user .profile file (/bin/sh initialization).

# Set up the terminal:
TERM=vt220
export TERM
tset -s -Q -m :vt220 > /dev/null
stty erase "^?" kill "^U" intr "^C" eof "^D"
stty hupcl -ixon -ixoff
tabs

# Set up the search paths:
PATH=$PATH:.:/usr/local/bin:

# Set up the shell environment:
set -u
trap "echo 'logout'" 0

# Set up the shell variables:
EDITOR=vi
export EDITOR
ORAENV_ASK=NO
export ORAENV_ASK
exec /usr/bin/ksh


Now for the .kshrc :


unset HISTFILE
export ORAENV_ASK=YES
export ORACLE_SID=DE01
export ORACLE_HOME=blabla
export PS1=`hostname`','`whoami`',${ORACLE_SID:-"none"},$PWD,!
> '
export EDITOR=vi
export TSMTERM=vt220
stty intr "^c" kill "^-" stop "^-" start "^-" erase "^?"
. oraenv

This work on my machine since 1994.

hi alex,

Thanks for the efort. But unfortunately it was a problem with Patches. I installed those and the system started behaving properly.


Thanks once again
