    Question about running . /runInstaller

    I realised that you can run

    . /runInstaller

    from either the $ORACLE_HOME/bin
    and also from the location of the oracle software on CD or the directory where the software is downloaded and unzipeed.

    What is the difference between these 2 ways of running

    . /runInstaller

    if its the same version of the software then nothing - runInstaller in $ORACLE_HOME/bin is usually a soft link to oui/install or something like that.

    The only difference is when you have a cd for a newer version.

    If they are the same, the disk one will be quicker as reading from disk is usually quicker than reading from a cd
