    Unanswered: Error while installing Oracle 10G R2 on Fedora 8

    Hi,
    I am installing Oracle 10G R2 on Fedora 8 machine.
    I followed all the steps which are given in http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle10g.shtml

    I tried following thing:

    [oracle@neelesh ORACLE]$ ./runInstaller --help
    Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2008-07-06_12-31-06PM. Please wait ...[oracle@neelesh ORACLE]$ Oracle Universal Installer, Version 10.2.0.1.0 Production

    No protocol specified
    Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.
    :0
    :0
    OUI-10025:Unable to start an interactive install session because of the following error:Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable. The DISPLAY environment variable should be set to <hostname or IP address>:<screen>, where the <screen> is usually '0.0'.............

    So I tried :

    # xhost +

    but again it gave error:

    No protocol specified
    xhost: unable to open display ":0"

    Please suggest.

    I resolved this issue by following way:

    1. As root user I run "xhost +" command so access control got disabled
    2. Then as "oracle" user I ran same command.

    and now I ran ./runInstaller command and it worked.,

    In the section on running the runinstall it tells you to set the DISPLAY and the xhost settings. You need to follow all the instructions.
