Starting Oracle Universal Installer... Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors Failed <<<< >>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/openwin/bin/xdpyinfo. Check if the DISPLAY variable is set. Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before continuing with the installation,at which time they will be rechecked. Continue? (y/n)Please help me to install successfully.
This problem may also be due to root not running xhost +. If this command is not run, then no other user can connect to the display. Stop the installation process, log into the server as root and run:
xhost +Then try the installation again. If this still does not correct the problem, review the InstallActions.log file in the oraInventory directory to see if more details are provided.
