X-window and oracle patch 8.1.7.3 installation

Currently, i need to patch my oracle from 8.1.7.0 to 8.1.7.3. When i run ./runLnstaller it prompt it that "DISPLAY not set". As i knew this is X-window setting. But, i do not know whether my system has X-window or not. Could anyone can guide me from starting of install X-window (where to install) and how to set the display and ora user in order to run the "runInstaller" without any problem. Thanks.

Ken,

Just use a pc with X-server software on it (eg ReflectionX, Exceed Hummingbird). Open a graphical session towards your Oracle server and export the display varaible there as follows:

export DISPLAY=xxx.yyy.zzz.ttt:0.0

where xxx.yyy.zzz.ttt is the IP address of your pc running Reflection, Exceed,...

This has to work as the installation of Oracle8.1.7 is graphical only as well.

Re: X-window and oracle patch 8.1.7.3 installation


hi

First of all u have to get PC X software. One of he popular software is X manager.
U can download in from http://www.netsarang.com/. Its a trail software.
Load it on a PC, connect to the server with that utility.

the set the DISPLAY settings

# export DISPLAY=10.23.34.45

assuming 10.23.34.45 is ur PC IP.

Then do ./runInstaller

Hi,

you do *not* have to buy an X-Seerver for Windows - VNC works just fine for that!
Use *search* on the top left of the ITRC window and search for "vnchpux.tar" (or "vncsun.tar" if you work on solaris) to find the VNC server (OpenSource = free) compiled by HP on the HP website, install it, get the viewer (=VNC client) from http://www.orl.co.uk/vnc and you are ready to go...
Start the VNC server on the UN*X system, enter the password, start the client on Windows, point it to your UN*X, it asks for that password, and you are connected. It *looks* like X-Windows to the programs (like Oracle), so enter "echo $DISPLAY" to see your display parameters, then set your oracle-installer shell's DISPLAY variable to that value and "export DISPLAY". Now start the the "./runInstaller" and Oracle's Java-Installer should show up.

Re: X-window and oracle patch 8.1.7.3 installation

Hi,

looks more like a Java problem to me: maybe another Java-installation is your $PATH or in the $CLASSPATH, located *before* the directory used by Oracle???

Re: X-window and oracle patch 8.1.7.3 installation

Kenn,

the steps *should* be as simple as:
- install X-window software on your PC

- start the X-window software on your PC but you do NOT need to use it to login - you can use normal PC telnet etc. BUT the X-client must be started on your PC

- type 'export DISPLAY=:0.0' on the UX server end

Ignore the runInstaller for the time being and test your X connection with something simple like typing 'xclock' - if you see the clock then your X connection is good and the runInstaller should then work.

If you have to login in through other servers to get to the Oracle server machine then getting X-windows back to your PC may not be possible. Look for the one hop route to the server if you have one.

PK

Re: X-window and oracle patch 8.1.7.3 installation

Hi again, Kenn.

You omitted the ":0.0" at the end of your ip-address (as some already mentioned!). So the line should read:

export DISPLAY=107.10.81.161:0.0

and this time use it exactly as shown above, inlcuding the colon and the zero and the period and the zero at the end.
On the X-server itself turn off the authentication (hint: use "xhost +") to avoid problems there.

Now you should be good to go!

HTH,
Wodisch
PS: in case you use the "csh" the line would read:
setenv DISPLAY 107.10.81.161:0.0
