oracle linux installation


Hi all,
am trying to install oracle database 10g lite on my redhat 3.4.4.2.

i get this error message when i run ./runInstaller



Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.
:0.0
:0.0
Unable to start an interactive install session because of the following error:Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable. The DISPLAY environment variable should be set to <hostname or IP address>:<screen>, where the <screen> is usually '0.0'.
Depending on the Unix Shell, you can use one of the following commands as examples to set the DISPLAY environment variable:
- For csh: % setenv DISPLAY 192.168.1.128:0.0
- For sh, ksh and bash: $ DISPLAY=192.168.1.128:0.0; export DISPLAY
Use the following command to see what shell is being used:
echo $SHELL
Use the following command to view the current DISPLAY environment variable setting:
echo $DISPLAY
- Make sure that client users are authorized to connect to the X Server.
To enable client users to access the X Server, open an xterm, dtterm or xconsole as the user that started the session and type the following command:
% xhost +
To test that the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, run a X11 based program that comes with the native operating system such as 'xclock':
% <full path to xclock... see below>
If you are not able to run xclock successfully, please refer to your PC-X Server or OS vendor for further assistance.
Typical path for 'xclock': '/usr/X11R6/bin/xclock'

I have tried to set DIPLAY to host ip address and run xclock i get this error:
Error: Can't open display: 192.168.2.54:0.0

wat do i do

redhat 3.4.4.2? wtf is that??


Either way, just run "xhost +" before becoming root, as is *VERY* clearly written in the error message you pasted... did you even read it??

Redhat 3.4.4-2 is an old Redhat EL 4.2 with "gcc-3.4.4-2"

An updated version of 'EL 4' has gcc-3.4.6-11.

The first thing you do is to spell out your words and write clearly. That text-speak garbage isn't good to try to read, and if you can't be bothered typing out a question, why should we be bothered answering it?

This question has been answered here many times...give the forums a quick search, and you'll find lots of solutions. Basically, the X server on your local client isn't set up to allow incoming connections. Do a "ps -ef | grep listen", and if you see something running with a "--nolisten", that's your X server, disallowing remote connections. Allow them, or you can try to type in "xhost +" as root, to TEMPORARILY allow incoming connections.

Also, since you're using both Oracle and RedHat enterprise, CALL THEM FOR SUPPORT since you're paying for it.
