    xclock and rapidwiz installer does not work

    user437657
      We are running Oracle E-Business suites 11.5.10.2 on Linux OEL 5 two node vmware system.

      cannot run xclock and rapidwiz instaler.


      I have set DISPLAY like that
      DISPLAY=:0.0; export DISPLAY
      when I run xclock, don't get any error message but clock does not show.
      When I run rapidwiz , don't get any error message but installer does not run.
      What I am missing. I am running from PUTTY from office network, what is missing.

      Please help.

          If you are not directly logged in to the server that EBS is hosted on, then you will need two things

          1. The IP address for DISPLAY needs to be set to your machine IP address
          2. You will need an X Windows emulator like eXceed on your machine

            Do you have any vncserver processes running on this machine?

            Please see these docs.

              Review Below metalink notes, they will give better understanding on Xserver:-

                  We don't have Hummingbird Exceed in our office. I downloaded xming software and launch xming.
                  set the DISPLAY to my PC ip address and also with the linux server etc/host ip address, tired xclcok command, again did not get any errors but could not see clock.
                  Then I opened VMware console, as soon as I log in to my Linux server through console, I was able to see clock plus the window executed by rapidwiz command from PUTTY.

                  So, my question is that if I vmware console window to upgrade r12 (installation and configuration), is that OK ?

                  I also need to know that my Linux libraries, kernal, patches are compatible with R12. Do I need to open another thread for this purpose.

                  Thanks for your help. I used this forum for the first time and really impressed, got prompt reply that I could not expect from my SR opened with the Metalink.

                    Yes this is OK

                    Pl see this related thread - Requirements for Linux  OEL 5 before upgrade to r12
