installing Oracle 9i on HP-UX 11i

I tried to install Oracle 9i on my HP-UX machine.
After "install successful" and
"link successful", I got the following error message:
"oracle Database Configure Assistant Failed" ... "no awt in shared library path". I did install JDK in /opt/java1.3.

Any suggestions?

Re: installing Oracle 9i on HP-UX 11i

The Oracle user account should not have CLASS_PATH set in its .profile.

Also, HP-UX is missing some X library symbollic links.

su - root
cd /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 libX11.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXIE.2 libXIE.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.3 libXext.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXhp11.3 libXhp11.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXi.3 libXi.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.4 libXm.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXp.2 libXp.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXt.3 libXt.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXtst.2 libXtst.sl

Thanks!

I set the follwoing path in .profile. Are they correct?

SHLIB_PATH=/users/oracle/product/9.0.1/lib:/users/oracle/product/9.0.1/rdbms/lib
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/users/oracle/product/9.0.1/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/users/oracle/product/9.0.1/rdbms/lib
export SHLIB_PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH
