    What do you mean that you can't install it? At what point does it fail? Is the OUI (oracle Universal Installer) even coming up?

    Hi Harpreet Singh,

    What kind of errors are you facing?
    In which step/part?
    Did you follow some documentation?

    PLease take a look at "Installation Guides" at http://www.oracle.com/pls/db102/homepage?remark=tahiti.

    Cheers,

    You really need to provide some more detail than simply say I can't install.

    What steps did you take and what's error you have?

    Did you follow Oracle installation guide?
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/install.102/b15704/toc.htm

    Is your system a SPARC or X86 ?

    Hi dbaharpreet,
    I've installed 10g2 into solaris 10 recently (last weekend), and I had no trouble... maybe anyone of us can help you but we'll need some info about what's failing during your installation process.

    I used the oracle quick installation guide provided with the installation files. You should see tahiti.oracle.com for any additional documentation. Use some of these blogs, maybe if you have no experience at all they will be very usefull:

    Link: [http://saifulaziz.wordpress.com/2007/09/04/step-install-oracle-10g-r2-on-solaris-10-x86/]

    Could you give us some additional info about what problems are you got?

    Thanks.

    Martin

    AND AFTER THIS I GET FIRST OF THE SCREEN BUT WHEN I CLICK ON NEXT AFTER GIVING THE PASSWORD FOR THE NEW DATABASE, IT GIVES ME A SCREEN WHICH SAYS " preparing to install", HOWEVER AFTER THIS IT STUCKS ON THE SAME SCREEN THE PROGRESS BAR GOES FORWARD AND BACKWARD.

    I can't understand what is wrong. Please help me.

    Go to $ORACLE_BASE/oraInventory/logs/ directory and find the log associated with your OUI session.

    The log file name looks like installActionsYYYY-MM-DD_HH-MI-SSAM where YYYY-MM-DD_HH-MI-SSAM is the time when you invoked OUI.

    Analyze the file and see if there are any errors. If you find any errors, post them here.

    look into this file
    /tmp/OraInstall2008-09-03_12-59-47PM

    see what's your find.
