Re: getting error when i use DBCA command..

export DISPLAY=:1.0
run DBCA
you should have a X-manager or exceed running.
You can try running xclock first to test it.

Re: getting error when i use DBCA command..


you will need a graphics - Xwindows environment because the dbca is java-based and runs on an X-windows environment.

If you have a graphics terminal, it would be easier to launch the installation from there itself.

hope this helps!

kind regards

Re: getting error when i use DBCA command..

IMHO, you have too many open threads ... this is just another. You already have a thread about this!

Install a X-Server application on your PC, for example this:

Now download putty:

From your PC, run

putty -X

putty -X -telnet

Once connected, run your X-application. The window will appear on your PC.
That's it.

Hope this helps!
