    Unhappy 8i runInstaller Starts, Diesn't Show in Gnome

    I'm trying to install Oracle 8i on RedHat 7.2, using Gnome.

    I've copied the CD to the server so I can run the install from there. VNCserver and Gnome are running.

    From a console, I've logged in as the oracle user (groups: oinstall, dba), and run ./runInstaller.

    The response is "Initializing Java Virtual Machine from... . Please wait..."

    Nothing else happens from here though, and I don't get the final message which should be: "*** Installer started successfully. ***".

    I've checked, using ps -al, that runInstaller is running. It is, and so is a jre.

    Can anyone please suggest why I can't see a new window within Gnome, for the runInstaller program?

    PLEASE - I'm really in a bind with this, so any suggestions would be most appreciated!

    Thumbs up

    Many thanks Amar

    Took me a while to muddle through, but I was finally able to run the Installer by following the instructions at the link you provided.

    I sure do owe you one!

    Have a great day, Max
