There seems to be a language barrier here. The OP seems to be logging into Gnome on the server's console as user 'root', running an xterm and su'ing to user 'oracle' to do the install.

The problem with the install not being able to connect to the X session is that it's owned by user 'root', and therefore user 'oracle' doesn't have permission to connect to the x session.

The solution would be to log into the Gnome X session as user 'oracle' and the run the install from an xterm. For the few scripts which have to be run as user root, you can simply su root or sudo the commands.

When we install oracle on RHEL 5.2, we log into X as oracle. This makes the whole process very simple.

Hi louisb, please refer this link ... I'm sure you would recover your X server related problems .... as i passed through this same problem. Although I still have problem with LD_LIBRARY_PATH issues and EM configuration.

thanks & regards, partha

Please read the LQ Rules...you re-opened a thread that's been closed for FOUR YEARS, you have hijacked it with your own question, and you are using text-speak. None of which are good things. Open your own thread for your own question, and spell out your words.

And have you tried saying "NO", or configuring the monitor, as the Oracle instructions advise you to? There are COMPLETE installation instructions on Oracle's website...and since you're using RHEL and Oracle, you can call either of them for support, since they are BOTH commercial products that you need to PAY FOR.

I already had this problem in linux during the oracle database software installation
and I solved with the following procedure. Try this:
open a new session GNOME terminal and with root user run "echo $DISPLAY",
we assume that the output is ":0.0". Then in the same gnome session,
log on with ora<sid> user ("su - ora<sid>") and then type the command "bash".
Now run "declare -x DISPLAY=":0.0"" and after that run "xclock" or "xeyes" (you will see the X window),
then you need to exit the bash shell, type "exit"! Now you must set the DISPLAY variable (with ora<sid>)
and point it to the output of echo $DISPLAY command with root user "setenv DISPLAY :0.0"
then check the DISPLAY variable with "echo $DISPLAY" (output will be = ":0.0") and then run again the command "xclock"!

Now I believe that you can see the X window!

Hope it helps.
