Oracle installation error


I am trying to setup Oracle 9i in our netwly purchased/intalled BL870c server running HP-UX 11.23. When i execute runInstaller, it immediately gives the error:

An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : 11 occurred at PC=0xc2f20911
Function name=JNU_GetEnv
Find attached detailed error log.

The install won't proceed. What to do?

Re: Oracle installation error

Did you check that somethign basix like xclock at least works in the install context?

Did you try Google for "oracle JNU_GetEnv hp ux" ? Several hits. Notably:

It suggests to check the Java version. It may be too recent:
"JRE_LOCATION parameter to /opt/java1.4 in $ORACLE_HOME/oui/oraparam.ini."

but more importantly...

Why not install oracle 10.2 or better on that nice and shiny blade?

Re: Oracle installation error

Ed Velaso,
Looks like this is a java runtime error ,
Check oracle 9i install documentation for requied Java Runtime ersion and if it is installed or not ,

# swlist -l product | grep -i java
# cd /opt ; ls -l | grep -i java
# cd /opt/java/bin ; ./java -version

Seems Java is present and correctly installed as suggested in the command outputs above.

Yes but how do you tell Oracle to use your java and not the one that comes with it?
