    DISPLAY not set

    I am preparing to install a patchset to go from 8.1.7.2 to 8.1.7.4.

    When invoking the installer, I am getting the following error.

    ./runInstaller

    DISPLAY not set. Please set the DISPLAY and try again.
    : No such file or directory

    So a dumb question. What should I set the DISPLAY to? Thanks.

    set the DISPLAY environment variable to yourhost:0. For example (assuming /bin/ksh):
    Code:
    workstation1% echo $DISPLAY
    :0
    workstation1% xhost +
    workstation1% rlogin -l oracle server1
    password: *********
    oracle@server1> export DISPLAY=workstation1:0
    oracle@server1> /cdrom/runInstaller
