    Unhappy setting display for oracle installation

    Hellow friends,

    I am trying to install the oracle8i on a sun server (i.e., on sun solaris 8) but whenever i am running the runInstaller it is saying to set the display.
    I tried to give the follwing commands.

    #DISPLAY=:0.0; export $DISPLAY
    it din't work
    so I tried to give as follows
    #export $DISPLAY
    hostname:0.0 is not a valid identifier ( the error)

    Can any one help me to set this parameter?

    Thanks in advance.

    Would it be safe to assume you are not typing "hostname" as the name of your machine?

    If you hostname/node name is malladi, you would enter
    setenv DISPLAY malladi:0.0 (for C-shell)

    If the display is properly set, you should be able to run xclock or any other CDE GUI tool. If you can't run xclock, you won't be able to run OUI.

    setting display for oracle installation

    Thanks stecal,

    I have got the OUI. Actually I was doing the mistake in settting the DISPLAY ie., while exporting I am adding "$" before DISPLAY.

    #export DISPLAY

    thanks a lot,
