I tried to install Websphere Application Server 6.0. On starting the install the installer terminates with error
“The installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag.“
How do I enable the graphical mode in the RHEL v4 AS?
Thanks for the reply. X11 has been installed in the server.
I used putty to connect using SSH and enabled X11 forwarding.
I tried xclock and got the error
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
I did some search in the net and understood that the error is because I am trying to open the X11 window from another system.
So I executed this command
xterm -display 10.105.146.28:0 where 10.105.146.28 is the system IP from where I am accessing the server
But this still gives error

xterm Xt error: Can't open display: %s

I don't know if this is something obvious that you've already tried - if so, sorry! This is my first post after all...
If your running the installer remotely:
1. SSh into the box with the following: ssh -X ip_address_of_server
2. Make sure the client box you are on has an xserver that can accept the x session from the ssh destination (sounds like this could be your problem - if so you need a program such as exceed running on your windows / putty box)
3. Export your display: export DISPLAY=ip_address_of_putty_box:0.0
4. Fire up xclock to test the x connection
I would install the software from the local console if I was you though (if you have access to one that is) that will rule out any remote X issues for now.
