3. Running the installer
Oracle installer must be run from Xwindows by user <b>oracle</b>.
Start Xwindows and from terminal window mount Oracle 8i CD-ROM and start the installer:
or if you have downloaded linux81701.tar from Oracle, untar it somewhere (e.g. under /u01/817InstallFiles), and then run the installer:
[oracle@frodo 817InstallFiles]$ tar -xvf linux81701.tar
[oracle@frodo Disk1]$ ./runInstaller
Now installer should work and you can install the software. If there is a problem launching installer first check LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5.
Assuming you have ceated user oracle as outlined in the previous step.
