Trying to install HP Software on RedHat

I am trying to install NNM 8.01 on Redhat 6 - 64bits (Vmware). Unfortunately just after runnning setup.bin, i have the following error :

[root@localhost NNM8.01]# sh setup.bin
Preparing to install...
Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
Unpacking the JRE...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
awk: cmd. line:6: warning: escape sequence `\.' treated as plain `.'
(i) Checking display ...
(-) Display may not be properly configured
Please make sure the display is set properly...
[root@localhost NNM8.01]#

I have verified the display via xorg.conf, everything seems to be working fine
Any ideas ?

Points will be offered ;-)
Chris.

Re: Trying to install HP Software on RedHat

The installer is preparing to open a X-based GUI window, but something goes wrong.

Before running the installer, try running some simple X program (xclock, for example). If it fails, don't even bother trying to run the installer before you've fixed the problem and xclock (or whatever) can run successfully.

If there are problems with the X GUI, simple X programs like xclock can sometimes display more meaningful error messages than installation scripts.

Re: Trying to install HP Software on RedHat

the $DISPLAY variable is :0.0
xclock works with no errors
xev works with no errors
Running X client/apps isn't an issue.
setup.bin is giving me the same exact error.

Maybe the output in the log will help a bit.

Re: Trying to install HP Software on RedHat

check if your setup.bin is pointing to any other IP or display number.

Workaround:

./setup.bin LAX_VM $JAVA_PATH

in my case:

./setup.bin LAX_VM /usr/java/latest/jre/bin/java

Make sure you have java installed.

Install JDK/JRE

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

export your java path to
export JAVA_PATH=/usr/java/jdk-1.6.0.5/jre/bin/java

and try again with the command above.

Re: Trying to install HP Software on RedHat

Hell I had a simular issue be discoverd that I didn't had installed " Desktop Platform"

 

yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System"

 

After install above the display issue was solved.

 

For your information XCLOCK did work fine but export DISPLAY=localhost:11.0 didn't  :-)

 

I hope this solution do help a other with a similar problem.

 

Cheers.
