Oracle 8.1.7 on HPUX11.11 Installation

Hi there,

When running RunInstaller of 8.1.7 on 11.11(64bit)
my Java Gui simply crashes at random
during Installation, without any sign
except of a lot of Java error messages.
I did check the prenstall with Oracle's
installprep.sh and modified the kernel as
pointed out there.

I did wrestle through a lot of search engines
but didn't (yet)find a clear solution on this
phenomenon.

Please help

Sorry it is Oracle 8.1.6 which was downloaded
from Technet.

Hello,

Did you also go through the installation guide?

There are a few environment variables that need to be set before starting the installation.
============================================================
E.g.
Parameter Value
--------- -----
ORACLE_HOME /u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.5
ORACLE_BASE /u01/app/oracle
PATH /u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.5/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/bin/X11:
and whatever else you want to have set follows
these three items in the PATH
ORACLE_SID Set this to what you will call your database instance.
(Typically 4 characters in length)
DISPLAY :0.0
============================================================

You will find the document at:
http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/pdf/A85470_01.pdf

Another document from metalink is the: "HP-UX: Quick Start Guide - 8.1.X RDBMS Installation"
(please find attached)

Hope this Helps!
