I have to upgrade one of our instance from 8.1.7 to 8.1.7.4. I have some info on running runInstaller from the Response file to running it in silent mode. But keep getting Java errors and I understand it should be run in a X-windows type enviroment.

Our HP-UX(2000) is old and only has a dumb type terminal that as far as I know does not run any GUI interface.

Is there a way to run "runInstaller" w/o a GUI interface? I have untarred my files and they reside under a /stage directory.

Or upgrade the patch manually(probably painstaking) ?

Thanks in advance.
