Yikaikai,

Are you getting this during the installation process (if so, is the installation process about 90% done)? I ask this because I got the same message at this point of the installation.

I first selected to "RETRY", but that didn't solve it. So I just selected "IGNORE" and it moved on with the installation process without any other problems.

Oracle is now running (for as far as I can see) without any problems.

Good luck.
