    installing oracle 11 software only with rsp file

    Has anybody every installed Oracle software without using the OUI?

    I use this command and it still tries to launch the OUI, how come.

    ./runInstaller -silent -noconfig -responsefile `pwd`/db_install.rsp


    ********************************************************************************
    Your platform requires the root user to perform certain pre-installation
    OS preparation. The root user should run the shell script 'rootpre.sh' before
    you proceed with Oracle installation. rootpre.sh can be found at the top level
    of the CD or the stage area.
    Answer 'y' if root has run 'rootpre.sh' so you can proceed with Oracle
    installation.
    Answer 'n' to abort installation and then ask root to run 'rootpre.sh'.

    Cool Response, What response?

    Did you try:
    Code:
    ./runInstaller -silent -noconfig -responsefile `pwd`/response/db_install.rsp

    I just tried your suggestion and that did not work either. In my first post left off the .rsp extention but when I tried it I had the extension.

    In all cases, it looks like it wants to lauch the OUI!! I even went as far as
    downloading xwindows from gnu but that hung on me.

    If somebody has a working .rsp file could they post it, with the command they
    used to install the software only. Once I have the software, I can do everything else manually.

    Exactly what I was going to suggest, I was experiencing the same issue and that was the solution.

    Viloa, that's it.

    You need the full path to the .rsp file. At the command line `pwd` should have been expanded first even before running the installer.

    Not sure why it did not work , but I did get past my problem.

    Thanks all
