    Oracle 10g on Sun Sparc

    Hello guys..

    I am trying to Install Oracle 10gR2 on Solaris 10 Sparc machine. This Machine is currently my desktop machine, and iam using Java Desktop Environment.

    When i do ./runInstaller , i get the following Error..
    $ DISPLAY=204.211.xxx.xxx:0;
    $ export DISPLAY

    $ ./runInstaller
    Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

    Checking installer requirements...

    Checking operating system version: must be 5.8, 5.9 or 5.10. Actual 5.10

    Checking Temp space: must be greater than 250 MB. Actual 2815 MB Passed
    Checking swap space: must be greater than 500 MB. Actual 3078 MB Passed
    Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors
    >>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/openwin/bin/xdpyinfo. Check if the DISPLAY variable is set. Failed

    Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before

    continuing with the installation,at which time they will be rechecked.

    Continue? (y/n) [n]


    basically it says that DISPLAY Variable has to be set. ...

    I already did set my display variable...and iam not sure why its needed when iam trying to install it locally.

    any help is appreciated

    Try this:
    PHP Code:
    export DISPLAY 
    -- OR --
    This problem may also be due to root not running xhost +. If this command is not run, then no other user can connect to the display. Stop the installation process, log into the server as root and run:

    xhost +
