Re: install oracle

Hi,

First, you'll need to be running an X windows terminal to do the Oracle installation, as Oracle does it all in a graphical window. The DISPLAY setting is an environmental variable. Just do this:

export DISPLAY=myhost:0.0

-or-

export DISPLAY=##.##.##.##:0.0

where 'myhost' or '##.##.##.##' is the hostname or IP address of the system that you have used to connect to the Linux system.

Re: install oracle

hi
assuming that you are running bash and you have already X configured and it is up and running,

export DISPLAY=ipaddress:0.0


also, if you are doing a telnet or rlogin and then trying to run this, you may need to run "xhost +ipaddress" on the machine from where you are running telnet.
