give "xhost +" command in the prompt and they try the installation. Graphical windows is not able to start, that's the error. Else if you want to run the installer in text mode. Try the below command for more option.

% runInstaller --help

Are you running the install via an ssh session ? ... if so you may need to enable X11 forwarding and make sure you're running a local X server. Also you may need the xorg-x11-xauth package installed
