u can follow this note: 731985.1 else try removing the /tmp/OraInstall dir and rerun the installer.
If you have downloaded a zip file and unzipped it using windows it gives out that error.
Unzip the file with winzip and start the OUI.
And it should run.
What Linux do you have?
Is TMP with enought space?
Do you have the media copied in the filesystems? where?
Did you try to clear the tmp directory for any garbage?
I've got the same error when installing database on x86 solaris and found the solution for my problem.
On windows box, I have unziped the downloaded archive and burn ISO image to use in solaris environment. The problem was with names - ISO filesystem has truncated filenames to 8 chars, f.e. runInstaller was "runinsta", etc.
Using "truss" command, I have discovered that the error message appears when installer tries to access a long filename from ISO disc.
Solution was to burn another ISO image, but with another filesystem type - UDF. After mounting, all names was OK and installer started without any problems.
For security reasons some admin put restrictions on the /tmp directory (for a good reason). You can change the default setting of the tmp directory used during installation by setting the environment variables TMP and TEMP to a different directory. Don't forget to set BOTH!!! variables.
