Re: runInstaller issue

who are you running the runInstaller as ?
It should be the oracle user you have set up as a pre-req.
What does ll ./runInstaller report ?

Re: runInstaller issue


You can run 32 bit programs on 64 bit systems.

However you may have one of two problems:

1) The user you are using does not own the binary.
2) The installation of oracle you are using is Itanium and you have a PA-RISC version of runInstaller you are trying to work with.

Note that Oracle releases different software for PA-RISC than Itanium Class systtems. Your system is PA-RISC.

Re: runInstaller issue

There is a high probability that you are trying to run an 11.23 executable on 11.11.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: runInstaller issue

hi arun,

first of all make sure that you are running the installer using the Oracle user that you have created as per your installation guide.

Secondly, run the appropriate runInstaller "script" from the installation path rather than the executable found in the install directory.

kind regards
