Unhappy Uncompress + Unpack files: (Read Only File System)


Hello,

I have files:

That are located on my CDROM.

I need to uncompress and Unpack the file using gunzip and/or cpio.
The problem I get a (Read Only File System) error ?

What should I do ?

Paolo

Copied to Hard Disk.

Hello,

Yes, I did.
I created a root folder called OraHome1 and ran gunzip/cpio.

Hello,

I copied the 3 files to a OraHome1 folder that I created, ran gunzip and cpio.
That part is Ok now.

Then I ran the following commands:

su - root
groupadd dba
groupadd oinstall
useradd -c "Oracle software owner" -g oinstall -G dba oracle
passwd oracle

-----
su - root
mkdir /opt/oracle
mkdir /opt/oracle/product
mkdir /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0
chown -R oracle.oinstall /opt/oracle

mkdir /var/opt/oracle
chown oracle.dba /var/opt/oracle
chmod 755 /var/opt/oracle

I have 3 subfolders Disk1, DIsk2, Disk3,
-----
I tried to invoke the xclock application and got this error.
To answer your quesiton. from a Shell Konsole , when I type xclock, I get
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error: Can"t open display: :0.0

I need to launch a java based utility to create and configure a Oracle Database.
DO I need to setup environment variables ?

What next to get me going ?

export DISPLAY=yourdesktop:0.0,


well , i never heard of it, maybe someone else, i still
think , if a program is so hard to install, throw it away!
it's an ORACLE-PROBLEM , go there.... (type in your browser: www.google.com , ......
when you are there type ' oracle linux install ' , you can get your info ( i hope )
