I am trying to install Oracle 9i R2 on centos 4.0 on my desktop. I compleed all pre installation steps including installing required RPMs etc. when Ii conned as oracle and try to start oracle installer it is erring out. I believe it has to do with Xwidows. I even exported DISPLAY=0:0.0. But oracle user can not start installer. Xclock does not show clock. But As root I can start Xclock. But no other user can run Xclock succcessfully. Is it a path related issue. how can I solve it. please help.

Thanks,
Srinivas

Sounds like you are logging into GDM (the initial screen) as root and switching users to oracle in the terminal window:

before su - oracle_user try running this command as root:

[b]xhost +[/b]

(or login to GDM as the oracle user)
