but it seems to me the error means that the script (runInstall.sh) is looking for a directory ( /install) inside the directory where Oracle is extracted to...or whatever directory is contained in the %PRODHOME% variable..
You might want to check that out...
I'm not an expert on bash...but after trying the script, try typing echo $PRODHOME see if that gives you anything...
also, are you supposed to give any parameters to the script? Ie: where the product is, like maybe "./runInstaller.sh /downloads/oracle" or something?
Does "./runInstaller.sh --help" or "./runinstaller.sh -h" give you any output?
As tcaptain, I have no idea about ORACLE. Maybe if you move into the install directory, wherever it is, and then try and run the install script from there it won't need to cd %PRODHOME%/install because you are already there.
I'm guessing PRODHOME stands for 'Product Home'. Of course, I could be way off.
Are you installing from a CD or did you download the files for the install?
If installing from CD you need to mount the cd (make sure you start the X window) move to the CD directory, find the runInstall file and run it as oracle user (assuming you created it already) This should do the trick unless you have other pre-install issues that need to address.
