Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Installing Oracle without X server

Posted by Jarkko Laine on
Thanks for the tips!

I got both vncserver on the server and VNCThing on my PBook up and and running and even the ssh tunneling working.

X Windows seems to work ok (tested with emacs and gimp), but when I run runInstaller from the console, the process just says:

[oracle@swissnet Disk1]$ Initializing Java Virtual Machine from ../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.1.8/1/DataFiles/Expanded/linux/bin/jre. Please wait...

After 20 minutes I'm getting a bit tired of waiting...

When using X over ssh there is also the danger of a broken ssh connection. I guess when you loose the connection you have to start the installation over, unless you have something like the 'screen' program that also allows to re-attach to forwarded X programs as well. So VNC is propably the best.
