Oracle 11g R1 install on Oracle Enterprise Linux
I have installed Enterprise Linux 5.3 and now trying to run the Oracle 11g installer however after I keep getting the following error:
$ su - oracle
-bash: /oracle11g_dvd/database/runInstaller: Permission denied
I copied the files from the dvd into a folder named oracle11g_dvd which is where I am trying to run the installer from.
First check that whether the permissions are set properly after copying the files from DVD.
Secondly, if the permissions are set fine, then please try to locate any ORA error (if it is coming).
I remember facing the similar problem on RHEL5 only, and there was some file that needs to be removed while doing the fresh installation trial.

thank you for the replies and suggestions. I actually gave up last night trying to install Oracle 11g R1 from the DVD I burned. I downloaded the needed software from Oracle downloads and all installed correctly with no issues. Maybe there was some issue with the way I burned the dvd to begin with. Thanks again!
One thing that I noticed is that you MUST use "unzip" to decompress the .zip installer, otherwise the file permissions will not be extracted properly.
Check the differences below:
Before (using "jar")
-rw-r--r--. 1 oracle oinstall 3230 Aug 15 2009 runInstaller
After (using "unzip")
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 oracle oinstall 3230 Aug 15 2009 runInstaller
Based upon that, I believe that not only runInstaller had been messed up by "jar -xvf" but other files as well, the solution was use "unzip" instead.
I hope it helps !
