Hi!

A stupid question, sorry - are you running the installer as root or as the oracle-user?

Shalom,

The /tmp directory needs more disk space.

There is a variable you can set in the oracle install script that will redirect the Oracle /tmp directory to another location with more space.

That is what I recommend.

Another problem:
Checking operating system version: must be B.11.23 or B.11.11. Actual B.11.11
Passed

I do not believe this version of Oracle is certified on 11.11. That if true is a show stopper.

Check with http://metalink.oracle.com for further details.

Sorry, you already provided all the details. Ignore my previous posting.

Re: Install Oracle 10.2 on hpu 11.11

From my experience it is the lack of free space in /tmp. Each time you run the Oracle installer it will create a directory in /tmp. If you have tried to restart the installer many times, you will have a directory for each attempt. Start with clearing these directories.

rm -rf OraInstall2009* would be a good start.

You need to make sure you have atleast 69MB of free space in /tmp.

If I am not mistaken, the bdf output shows that /tmp is almost empty and thus has 1.5GB free space.
So unless I overlooked something, space is not the problem here.

As the user who is trying to install the oracle software, can you do :

mkdir /tmp/OraInstall2009-08-24_10-41-08AM
cd /tmp/OraInstall2009-08-24_10-41-08AM
touch xx
rm xx

Just to make sure you can effectively write to this location.
