Installation stuck with no errors

I currently have Oracle8i installed on a Sun Solaris 8 platform. I am trying to upgrade the same to Oracle9i. But the installation is getting stuck at 48% while using the second CD. It is not even throwing any errors. But in spite of leaving the server as it is for 24 hours, the installation/upgrade is not moving anywhere.

I currently have Oracle8i installed on a Sun Solaris 8 platform. I am trying to upgrade the same to Oracle9i. But the installation is getting stuck at 48% while using the second CD. It is not even throwing any errors. But in spite of leaving the server as it is for 24 hours, the installation/upgrade is not moving anywhere. The server is not hung. Processor activity report is normal. CD ROM is alright, or the server would have thrown an error message. What could have gone wrong? Do you suggest reinstalling the OS before installing Oracle? Please provide your suggestions.

Check the oraInventory/logs/installActions.log file for any errors. Even though you may not see any errors displayed to the screen, the installer may be sending errors to the installActions.log file.

Ensure that you have the required temp and swap space, as well as physical memory. There is a script that you can download and run from Metalink. It will check to see that you have all the requirements to install Oracle9i. Finally, review the release note for your platform to ensure that you have installed all required OS patches.
