Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

the obvious question what are the permissions on runInstaller?

Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

Pl. Check the following

1. What is the permission for runInstaller file?

ls -l runInstalled

2. What is the user name you are trying to use?
id

Pl provide the above output...

Normally, if you dont have rwx permission, then you may need to do a chmod operation

Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

Also, you need to have CDE (Graphical Display) to run runInstaller. So, logout from current user and login as "oracle" directly and launch runInstaller.

Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

Since your permissions are okay, I suspect that you downloaded an incorrect version: Possibly an Itanium version for HP-UX or a 64-bit version on a 32-bit OS.

Do a file runInstaller and post the output and also identify your machine and OS.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

hmm you might want to chown that to oracle:dba, since you are running that as oracle.

In fact I think I would chown the whole download directories to oracle:dba

not 100% sure that will fix your problem tho.

Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

Did you download the correct version for your platform? Others have downloaded the Itanium version when they really wanted PA-RISC, and received the same error message.

I download

Oracle9i Enterprise Edition for HP/IA64, Release 2 (v9.2.0.2)
HP_IA64_server_9.2.0.2.0_Disk1.cpio.gz
HP_IA64_server_9.2.0.2.0_Disk2.cpio.gz
HP_IA64_server_9.2.0.2.0_Disk3.cpio.gz

Re: Su: runInstaller: Execute permission denied

That's half of the answer; now what model machine are you running on. Execute "model". If you are running a PA-RISC based HP-UX box then that is your problem.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
