Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to install Oracle 10g clusterware on an RHEL4 Update2 server, but I get the following message "./runInstaller: line 58: /u01/clusterware/install/.oui: cannot execute binary file"
The server is 32-bit as well as the .oui file. I verified the cksum of the zip file against the oracle download site and that matches. I copied the zip file from the server to my laptop running Fedora and I was able to start the install.
Make sure the .oui file has execute permissions for the user you're trying to start runInstaller under - to make it simple you could just make it executable for everyone. The message is saying it can't execute it.
Permissions was the first thing I checked when my DBA approached me with the problem. Permissions were set to 755 and oracle:dba owned the file. I tried to start the install as root and I received the same error message. I even tried 777, but the oracle user still can't execute the binary. I have seen a one or two postings about the same problem on other sites, but there was no posted resolution. Below is my "uname -a" output and we are using a recompiled kernel, which is normal for Polyserve.
Is the partition that the oui file is being run from mounted with the exec option? If it's mounted noexec, you won't be able to run the executable. I've also had programs run in one location and try to run something from /tmp and die on my system (I also mount /tmp noexec) so if it's trying to do that it will also fail.
Please let me know step by step procedure to solve this problem...
No. First, you reopened a FIVE YEAR OLD THREAD, then you ignored the answer that was given. Also, this is NOT the place to come for "step-by-step" directions. If you need those, why don't you try reading the Oracle installation documents, which are exactly that..step by step directions. Again, if you can't figure that out, then you need to CALL ORACLE SUPPORT...Oracle 10g is NOT a free product.
And add to that the fact that it's old...if you're doing a new install, load the latest, and get the 'step-by-step' directions from Oracle. If you still can't figure any of that out, then you need to post details IN YOUR OWN THREAD. Aside from what MensaWater mentioned, you need to say how you're running the install (from the console? Remote?), if you've got X windows set up correctly to DISPLAY the GUI installer, if the drive mentioned above is a symbolic link anywhere (like this problem resolution said it was), etc.
