problem in installing Oracle Applications 11i

Hi all
I am trying to install Oracle Applications 11i on HP-UX 11i (B11.11) from copied CD's on the system (stage).
I did exactly the following :
-create user (oracle8i) primary group (dba), shell(sh).
$DISPLAY=Fin01 (Fin01 is hostname)
$export DISPLAY
$rapidwiz.



Preparing to start up Rapid Install...





If you are performing a CD install, you must change directories in your

UNIX session to a directory outside of the CD-ROM mount point before

you will be able to eject the CD and proceed.



rapidwiz.[479]: /tmp/RapidInstall/bin/runWizard.sh: not found.

$

the last line is the error I get.
can you help me to pass this problem?/
Thanx
Burhan

Hi

- Is there enough space in /tmp, you need about 650 MB.
You can set Environment Variable $TMP or $TMPDIR to use another directory, if you set both, /tmp ist still used (BUG 1635483)

- Do you have write-permission in /tmp ?

- There are problems if root has umask 027 or higher

Re: problem in installing Oracle Applications 11i

First glance:

Your DISPLAY variable is wrong.

If you are running the install from X with a graphics connection in the back of the box:

DISPLAY=Fin01:0.0
export DISPLAY

The IP address is even better

If you are installing from your workstation running an X emulator like Hummingbird:

DISPLAY=IP_address_of_workstation:0.0

As noted before /tmp needs a ton of space and rw permissions to the world, which is standard and even Bastille doesn't mess with that.

Re: problem in installing Oracle Applications 11i

hi,

To add to the above replies.

I prefer not to use /tmp, instead create another huge temporary file system and export my environment variables as follows:

export TMP=/prod/tmp
export TEMP=/prod/tmp
export TMPDIR=/prod/tmp
export TMP_DIR=/prod/tmp

(to be on safe side)

also, it is preferable that you lauch the installation by specifying the "full path" instead of a "relative" one. (e.g. /install/cd1/rapidwiz )

hope this helps!

Hi
I considered your notes, but still have the same message :

Re: problem in installing Oracle Applications 11i


Ok.
I guess you have already copied the CDs on the server's file system.

can you launch the installer from the CDs and then select the Jar file from the file system instead of the cds?
(i.e. when prompted for the next cd...)

please revert.

Re: problem in installing Oracle Applications 11i

Just get out of the /cdrom dir

Do a runinstaller from / like

#cd /
#/cdrom/ora8i01/install/solaris/runInstaller

REvert
