Problem invoking the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle 8.1.6) on HPUX 11.0

Problem invoking the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle 8.1.6) on HPUX 11.0

Does the OUI use the JRE installed on the system OR it looks like it is using the JRE which comes with the Oralce 8.1.6 installation but it does not come up :

Looks like the Oracle installer does not use the JRE installed on the system but uses the JRE which comes with the Oracle 8.1.6 installation :

Re: Problem invoking the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle 8.1.6) on HPUX 11.0

What I usually did was set the DISIPLAy to a PC running reflectionX and then ran the installer which seemed to work. But I know people have problems with it and reverted back to the text based installer.
Minimum effort maximum output!

Re: Problem invoking the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle 8.1.6) on HPUX 11.0

How do I run the text-based installer. Actually I would much prefer to do the install through a script rather than through the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer).

Pl. can you point me to where I will be able to get information on the text-based installer ??

The Oracle Installation Guide does mention the -silent option on pg. 3-24. Is that the text-based option ???

$ ./runInstaller [-silent] -responsefile filename

Re: Problem invoking the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle 8.1.6) on HPUX 11.0

looks to me like you are trying to install it on a workstation as your uname -a output shows it as series 700 workstation. I doubt you can install oracle server app on a workstation.

Did try this but it also fails with the same message :

./runInstaller -response svrtypical.rsp

Re: Problem invoking the Java OUI (Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle 8.1.6) on HPUX 11.0

Hi there.
Your installer is looking in the wrong JRE
directory. Uninstall the complete software.
Then go for the silent option. This is the install procedure, if you do not have a X-terminal available. But be aware, that you can check the install only with the logfile.
Try to follow the logfile with the tail -f option.
Hope i could help you.
