Oracle 10g on OpenSuSE 10.3 AMD64 - Installer Hangs

Sorry if this is a repost - I spotted other threads on different versions of Oracle/SuSE but nothing specific to Oracle 10g x86-64 + SuSE 10.3 x86-64. I am a linux newbie so I'm not sure which steps/elements of these older threads might be applicable here.

Trying to install Oracle Database 10g Release 2 ( Enterprise/Standard Edition for Linux x86-64.

OpenSuSE 10.3 AMD64 is up and running on a dualcore Opteron 2Ghz. Machine has 4GB Ram + 2GB linux swap configured. Running KDE.

I have followed the 10g preinstallation and configuration steps from the oracle quick installation guide. After launching runInstaller from within a Konsole window, the installer launches and preliminary setup questions complete. Installer then hangs at 65% - this has happened twice at the exact same spot.

The oracle installation .gz file passes cksum, so I don't think this is a file corruption issue.

Any ideas?

Since the log above refers to java errors, here's some info on the JVM:

thomas@linux-k077:~> java -version
java version "1.5.0_12"
Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_12-b04)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_12-b04, mixed mode)

Nobody has any suggestions? Should I start trying the suggestions for SuSE 9.x I've seen in other threads on this forum? Any harm in trying?

You could start the installer under the command of strace and
see what it's trying to do, what it hangs at.

'man strace' for details.
