    I am trying to install Oracle 8.1.7 on Linux Redhat 6.2

    the cd is mounted properly and all of the x settings are correct (I'm sitting at the console). There are two problems:

    1) Running /mnt/cdrom/runInstaller gives the error:
    "bash: ./runInstaller: no such file or folder"
    which is odd since the script is usr/group/world readable and executable. But, since it is a script, all of the commands can be run by hand if needed (Which I did).

    2) The program /mnt/cdrom/install/linux/runInstaller says that the Java runtime environment at /bin/jre could not be found. I have downloaded and extracted/installed the blackdown JRE 1.1.8 v3 into /usr/local/jre_118v3 with a link to /usr/local/jre. Everything is owned by root.root and is chmod 655 so permissions should not be a problem. I have tried setting my path to include /usr/local/jre/bin, I have tried unsetting that path, I have linked to /usr/local/java and then setting my path both ways and nothing works.

    Once I can get the installer started, I should be fine... I just can't get the stupid thing to run!

    You were undobtedly in the wrong directory this happened to me many a times.

    If your harddisk space is sufficient, I would suggest you to copy all the CD contents into the harddisk and run the runInstaller.

    Give a try!
