Question Oracle 10g R2 Installation Problem

Greetings All !

I have RHEL AS 4.0 Update 5 running on Itanium-based HP rx7640. Even after performing all 10g pre-installation tasks, when I try to runInstaller I get the follwoing message from the JVM:-

# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
# SIGILL (0x4) at pc=0x2000000003aa4070, pid=24248, tid=2305843009214273824
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (1.4.2_10-b03 mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# Segmentation fault

I checked on the java that comes with the OS. The output of 'java -version' command is given below:-

java version "1.4.2"
gcj (GCC) 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-8)
Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

There is no way I am able to start the OUI and proceed. Pls. help

Thanks & Regards

Re: Oracle 10g R2 Installation Problem

Reprint message from Charles Hooper:

Metalink note 391844.1 indicates that there is a bug in the Java
Development kit that ships with 10g R1 and 10g R2 that affects
computers with Itanium processors. Metalink note 401332.1 supplies
tips for identifying processors that trigger the Java bug. Metalink
note 400227.1 provides access to the patches that correct the problem.
