    Error in writing to directory /tmp/

      I am trying to run the Installer to install a patchset and it continuously gives me the error message below.....

      Could some please tell me what I am doing wrong.

      There is plenty (11GB) of space. Permissions are set to 777 (on /tmp directory) and I have tried creating a new /tmp directory and exporting the path.

      Sill not having any luck.

      Tks much

      Checking installer requirements...

      Checking operating system version: must be B.11.11. Actual B.11.11

      Checking swap space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 16384MB Passed

      All installer requirements met.
