    Unanswered: 8.1.7 installation problem


    I have to install another Oracle to my HP-UX, currently it's running Oracle Application Server and this Oracle installation is product specific so it must be 8.1.7 release.

    I created the new user called as "ora8", setup the ORACLE environment variables like ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE, PATH

    But when I try to run runInstaller as "ora8" I am getting error.

    ********** ERROR **************
    devel^ora8:/oracle/orainst/Disk1 > export DISPLAY=my_ip:0.0
    devel^ora8:/oracle/orainst/Disk1 > export TEMP=/oracle/orahome

    devel^ora8:/oracle/orainst/Disk1 > ./runInstaller

    As you see it wants to write permission to /home/oracle but /home/oracle is oracle user's home, not ora8 user. I am used the ora8 user to install.

    So how can I install oracle 8.1.7 with ora8 user?
