Either you don't have X windows running on your workstation, your workstation isn't set to accept incoming X connections, or your address is wrong.

You don't say anything about your workstation setup, what it's running, or if you've tried the install from the console, so it's hard to say. You can install in text-mode, without the GUI, over a regular SSH session too.

And most importantly...you're using Oracle and RedHat Enterprise. Your paying for support from both of them, so the best thing to do would be call either/both of them for support.

Except that the OP already said they're doing the xhost step, and is getting stopped there. That guide doesn't address that.

Also, there are several errors in that document. Genuine installation guides can be downloaded from Oracle's website, that have the correct information on them.

Sorry, there are several. From your site:

As RHEL5 has been released after Oracle 10g was, Oracle 10g does not support RHEL5 ocially
Which is amazing...since Oracle is officially supported under RHEL4, which came out BEFORE RHEL5. It is officially supported under RHEL5, and has been for some time. Look it up on Oracle's website.

Also, some of the system parameters you're putting in are dependent on particular system details, they're not generic. Yes, it may be working for YOU, but that guide is flawed as a general installation guide. As I said, official guides can be found on Oracle's website, and since they WROTE the DB, those are the guides that should be followed.

Actually Oracle Universal Installer doesnot recognize RHEL5 as supported OS and the installer will stop if its RHEL5 . SO we have to change the value in /etc/redhat-release to rhel4 to bypass the system requirement. And the system parameters may be different for different systems.

It's clearly written in Oracle Documentation.

Yep, so is this, from the beginning of the document you linked to:
Quote:
Starting with Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.4), the following operating systems are supported in addition to the list documented in Oracle Database Installation Guide for Linux x86:
  • Asianux 3
  • Oracle Enterprise Linux 4/Oracle VM
  • Oracle Enterprise Linux 5/Oracle VM
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4/Oracle VM
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5/Oracle VM
See the part where it says "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5"???? Right under where it says "the following operating systems are supported"??? RHEL5 IS a supported OS. What you're talking about is a known workaround for the generic installer to work.

The link to your website says that Oracle 10g is not supported under RHEL5. It is, which you proved by the document you linked to. The installer note has been a known issue for some time.
