switching of /tmp directory

Hello All,
First of all i know this is oracle database related post but I coul'nt find an answer from that forum thats why going to post here.
I am intalling oracle 11g r2 on HP-UX. For pre-requisite I need 500mb free space in /tmp but I have 244 mb space in /tmp.
What I did is I just create a /tmp folder on /u01/tmp and change the following path so that I could use this folder for Oracle Installation.

# export TEMP=/u01/tmp
# export TMPDIR=/u01/tmp
# export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
# export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/10gr1
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/u01/app/oracle/10gr1/lib
# export PATH=/u01/app/oracle/10gr1/binPATH

When I execute the installer it throws the follwoing error:

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking temp space: 244 MB available, 415 MB required. Failed <<<<
Checking swap space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 4096 MB Passed
Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors. Actual 16777216 Passed

Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before

continuing with the installation,

Continue? (y/n) [n] n

User Selected: No

It seems the installer treating the /tmp on root as a temp directory.I dont know where I did mistake.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: switching of /tmp directory

the "#" at the start of the commands you list above seems to indicate you set these env variables as the root user, but presumably you are executing the runInstaller command as the oracle user? You should set these env variables as the oracle user...
