We are trying to install Oracle 8.1.6 on linux in silent mode. (Silent mode is an alternative for installing through GUI). It takes the answers for the GUI selections from a file called reponse file (ex. svrminimal.rsp). I was doing installation for Minimal version. So, I set the INSTALL_TYPE="Minimal" in the response file. The program is not taking the INSTALL_TYPE varible and hence failing at the excution of that page. If any of you worked on silent mode installation, please let me know, so that we can discuss the problem.
