    Question Unanswered: Installing on Solaris without X Windows

    Is it possible to install Oracle 9i on Solaris without X Windows running? I get the following exception:
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'brooklyn:0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

    1. You can export display to another machine with X installed and running. For example: export DISPLAY=192.168.0.20:0.0
    2. You can use the "silent" install

    The -silent option requires that you set the DISPLAY. I have NO X Server to set it to. Is there any way around that?

    NO. Use VNC or other freeware for the needed X-server.

    Silent install does not need the X, so you can do following:
    export DISPLAY:0.0
    and then run the silent install

    good solution is cygwin with X and then export display to that machine

    I tried that. It does not work. Here is the error.

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

    What kind of version you try to install?
    Because of bug the silent install in 9.0.1 is not functional.

    OK, try to use cygwin as i mentioned above.
    You can download it from http://cygwin.com/.
    Install it with Xserver option (it is a default option i guess) on your local (windows machine).
    After installation, run it and open the shell enviroment and run following command:
    xhost +
    Then go to the db server and export display to your machine.
    for example:
    export DISPLAY=192.168.0.1

    Run installer on db server

    I am installing 9.2.0, but I was just informed by Oracle that it is still buggy. I will follow your advise and use cygwin.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Thank you all!
    So, on my machine with X Windows I ran 'xhost +' command, set DISPLAY variable on target machine to localhost_IP:0.0 and started the installer!
