I am installing (64-bit) on a Solaris box that has 64-bit kernel. I get a message that I can't write to /tmp and need 69MB free. I have also redirected the /tmp to /oracal/tmp, which I know the Oracle user has write access to. Any ideas on why this happens and how to bypass it? Thanks.

If there is insufficient room in /tmp, you should define both TMPDIR and TMP environment variables to point to another location that the Oracle Universal Installer can use for temp space during installation. This must be a location that the Oracle user can write to. For further information on the necessary requirements, review the Oracle9i Release 2 Installation Guide Release 2 ( for Unix Systems on Oracle's Technology Network Web site.
