I am trying to install Oracle 126.96.36.199 Grid with ./runInstaller.sh script on Oracle Linux 6.4 64 bit OS. The problem is that the display and refresh rate is VERY SLOW and hangs at times
during the installer process with no errors. The buttons do not always display and disapper from time to time. Any idea how to fix this issue with the Java based ./runInstaller.sh on Oracle Linux 6.4 platform? By the way, I am running this from a virtual machine on VMware that I created and the VMware tools are installed. Found this on MOS:
Bug 9974998 : DB INSTALLER PERFORMANCE ISSUE - SWING APPLICATION
Is there a patch or workaround for this issue? How would I solve by restarting X services on Oracle Linux 6.4?

I've seen and experienced similar issues due to not having all the needed fonts installed on my x-server software on the desktop.

No, I am working directly on the server console.
I currently have about 8 virtual machines on my desktop. If I have to access any of them through the console I consider something to be seriously wrong. I treat them exactly as I do real servers in my data center - which I've never laid eyes or hands on. I access my locally hosted virtual servers with the same tools on my Win 7 desktop as I do those real servers in the data center. I use xming as my local x-server when I need to access a GUI utility like the installer or an of the configuration assistants (dbca, asmca, netca, etc).
