Hello Senior Members,

I am working to install oracle 11g R1 on a RAC enviroment and part of the article I have followed closely for the installation says I should set the environment variable DISPLAY of my RHEL 5.1(Bash shell) system named Marine1 to a valid X Windows display.


I ran the following command I got from the article to do that but got error:

[oracle@Marine1 ~]$ DISPLAY=<Any X-Windows Host>:0
bash: Any: No such file or directory

I know I am missing the proper words to substitute.

I need help with the proper command to set the environment variable DISPLAY to a valid X Windows display

Thanks

Panam

"<Any X-Windows Host>" = IP of the machine on which you want to display the windows (screen, forms...) of the installer.

Regards
Michel

Hi Senior Members,

I am trying to install Oracle 11gR1 on RHEL 5.1. in a 2 node RAC enviroment. I ran the Pre Installation check using the CVU and passed all checks:(Pre-check for cluster services setup was successful.)

I had also (as oracle user) set the display thus:
$ DISPLAY=<Any X-Windows Host>:0
$ export DISPLAY

I ran the installer but got the follwing error

Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors
>>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/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]

How do I resolve this?

Thank you.

David

unless & until the "xclock" or similar utility works, OUI will not succeed

for third & final time
EXACTLY & in detail how are you connecting to machine running EL5?

Just as an addition,

I had ran the following command:

$ DISPLAY=192.168.1.100:0

$ export DISPLAY

(192.168.1.100:0 is host ip (from the system I am running the installer:)

Thank You Panam

I am connecting locally.

I log in via the GUI as Oracle user on the first node named Marine1.

I typed

$ xclock

It shows up.
My xclock is working fine on both nodes.

I am NOT sitting behind you!

>I am connecting locally.
I have NO context to understand what this means.
What is local to you is meaningless to everyone else in the universe.
Are you connecting locally to your chair & keyboard?
Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair.

>I log in via the GUI as Oracle user on the first node named Marine1.
I have NO idea whether Marine1 is DB server, client, mail server, or print server.

>My xclock is working fine on both nodes.
Better than nothing but inconclusive
EXACTLY which "both nodes"?

Pretend you are describing what you have, you do & what you see to a blind man;
because that is essentially my situation.

ok Sir,


(1). I have 2 nodes(DB servers) loaded with RHEL 5.1

Xclock is working fine on the SERVERS. I LOG INTO THE FIRST (NODE) SERVER AS ORACLE USER SO I CAN INSTALL ORACLE.

(2)Problem exist from the 1st server: OUI is not running.
It is it giving me this error:

[oracle@Marine1 ~]$ /home/oracle/orainstall/database/runInstaller
Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking Temp space: must be greater than 80 MB. Actual 23300 MB Passed
Checking swap space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 2561 MB Passed
Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors
>>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/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] n

(3). I had earlier set the display using the following command FROM THE FIRST SERVER:

$ DISPLAY=192.168.1.100:0
$ export DISPLAY

I want to resolve the error so OUI can run

Thank you

>>$ DISPLAY=192.168.1.100:0
It is supposed to be
$ DISPLAY=192.168.1.100:0.0


If it still does not work


You might probably need just an
xhost + 

On other hand, if you are logging in directly/locally and xclock just works fine, DISPLAY to localhost:0.0
And see what happens if you just ignore the message and proceed?
In certain cases, this is just pre-req.

Methinks your X knowledge needs some beefing up OP. On the server you are connecting to, as root, you need to run 'xhost +'. This allows X sessions to be exported. (I am simplifying and paraphrasing . . . ). On the system you are wanting to display the X window on, you need to set your display variable. So you then telnet to the box you want to run your X window from, set the environment variable 'set DISPLAY=192.168.1.100:0.0; export DISPLAY', then try and run xclock from your telnet window. If it appears, your X environment is setup correctly. If you are on the same system you are trying to install on, with one telnet session logged in as 'oracle' to do the installation from, you still need to do a 'xhost +' from a ROOT WINDOW!!. Also, you may have luck setting your display environment variable to 'set DISPLAY=localhost:0.0; export DISPLAY'. If you reboot the box, you need to do a 'xhost +' from root again to allow X to work the way you need it to. Hope this helps. Good luck!
