This issue has been reported a couple of times both with installation but also while starting a managed server
Note 953141.1 - Fusion Middleware 11g Installation Fails with java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
I noticed that you tried with both the 32 and 64 bits version of WLS. In your case it is important to use the proper versions for OEL 5.3 64 bit :
* WLS Generic (since you are on 64 bits) : http://download.oracle.com/otn/nt/middleware/11g/wls1033_dev.zip
* PFRD for x86-64 :
Install it in this way :
1. Install WLS first according to the instructions in the PFRD installation guide
2. Install PFRD 126.96.36.199 and choose Install Only. Don't configure the software yet
3. Install PFRD 188.8.131.52 to patch the software to 184.108.40.206
4. Run config.sh from the PFRD ORACLE_HOME to configure your software.
Hope this helps,
I would like to know if you successfully installed patch set 2 (ofm_prfd_220.127.116.11) on top of an instance of web logic server zip distribution 10.3.3 (wls1033_dev.zip) as you suggested in your steps.
I have been experiencing problems with patchset 2 (32 bit for 32bit win XP) being installed on wls1033_dev prompting an:
INST-07286: Specified Oracle Middleware home location does not have version 10.3.3 of Web Logic server.
The 18.104.22.168 ofm installation does however recognize the wls zip distribution install.
I have read the install documentation on patchset 2 and cannot find anything solid relating to the wls zip distribution.
The lack of material on the net and OTN relating to my problem leads me to believe that somewhere its documented that this cannot be done OR
I am doing something incredibly wrong.
I will keep searching.

Yes, I have done a couple of installs with WLS 10.1.3.3 and PFRD 22.214.171.124. But my platform is Linux, not 32 bit XP. Note that XP is not a supported platform for PFRD products (see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/downloads/fmw-11gr1certmatrix.xls) - it is only supported for the Forms and Reports Builder tools, Discoverer Desktop and other tools.
I needs of the business are that developers need to continue developing forms and reports using 11g on there current machines (1- 2 GB of memory).
I have been installing forms and reports builder using note 854117.1 and and for XP machines I have been following the guidelines here
Its a pitty that the patch cannot be used on a dev distro.
wls1033_dev.zip is a lot smaller and much faster to start up than wls1033_oepe111150_win32.exe
Thanks for the response
In my case (the installaion was done on windows 2008 server) there were different ip addresses
in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\host file and actual ip address of the computer,
due to the fact that it was DHCP one, i.e. from time to time after shutdowns and startups different ip addresses are assigned to computer.
So, the general advice is: try to get a fixed ip address from admins for your installation, especially taking into account that WLS_FORMS and
WLS_REPORTS servers are configured with ip addresses built into them.
