    Hi,
    In .bash_profile / .profile under /home/oracle directory write
    DISPLAY=:0.0

    Then logout and login and see the result.

    In case of any help please be free to ask me at rohitsn@altavista.com

    There have been reports of Oracle 8.1.6.1 not working on Red Hat 7. The problem seem to be an interaction with the new GNU Lib C shipped with RH 7.
    This shows up when you relink the Oracle binaries (Part of the installation process). We have communicated the problem to Red Hat and expect to have a solution for this problem soon.

    Hi

    If your on the linux workstation you must surely have Installed gnome or kde just use the following key to switch to that GUI terminal you can login from there use the following key combination

    Ctrl + Alt + F7 (Function Key)

    You can use Ctrl + Alt + F1 to swith back to Character user interface that will be F1 Terminal.If you are going to Install Oracle 8.1.x on Linux platform you can do it from the F7 terminal like that you have allmost 6 virtual character user Interface terminal F1 to F6 and One Graphical user Interface that is F7

    Hope this helped

    Regards
    Santosh
