    It is difficult to help you solve the problem without any clue as to what type of error, or at what stage the installer hangs.

    Pointers

    -What version of Oracle are you installing and on what Linux?
    -Make sure you have sufficient RAM for your Oracle version
    -Make sure you have all the environment parameters set
    - Make sure Oracle group/user and appropriate privileges are assigned...

    One really needs more info in order to help here otherwise one is just shooting in the dark.

    Hi...

    I think there is some problem with the Linux Kernel. There is some Compatiblity issue between Linux 7.2 KERNEL and the Java Installer.

    You can try this solutions :

    1. Reinstalling the Linux OS with Red Hat Linux (6.2)
    2. Put this parameter "LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5" in you Oracle user .profile or .bash_profile.

    Hope these solutions can solve your problems.

    Rgds.

    I think Universal Installer does not work with kernel 2.4.2, glibc 2.2

    I dont know about Mandrake but according to a collegue who succesfully installed 8.1.7 Redhat 7.1 he did this

    install:
    compat-glibc-6.2-2.1.3.2.i386.rpm (located in DISC 1)
    compat-egcs-6.2-3.i386.rpm (the version number may differ, located in DISC 2)
    compat-libs-6.2-3.i386.rpm (located in DISC 2)
    jdk118_v3 (downloaded from http://www.blackdown.org)

    enviroment variables:
    export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
    source /usr/i386-glibc21-linux/bin/i386-glibc21-linux-env.sh
    export LANG=en_US


    I succesfully installed 8.1.6 with these instructions

    THIS IS REDHAT 7.1 Be aware


    HTH
