    Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/bin/X11/

    954935
      Hello,

      In a work trying to install ORACLE 11gR2 software in AIX 5.3,


      export DISPLAY=local_IPXXX:0.0
      xclock

      it works, can see the clock.


      then go to dowloaded oracle, run

      /xxx/11g203_AIX64_5L/database-> ./runInstaller
      ********************************************************************************

      Your platform requires the root user to perform certain pre-installation
      OS preparation. The root user should run the shell script 'rootpre.sh' before
      you proceed with Oracle installation. rootpre.sh can be found at the top level
      of the CD or the stage area.

      Answer 'y' if root has run 'rootpre.sh' so you can proceed with Oracle
      installation.
      Answer 'n' to abort installation and then ask root to run 'rootpre.sh'.

      ********************************************************************************

      Has 'rootpre.sh' been run by root? [y/n] (n)
      y

          I am left wondering whether you read the install documentation and performed all of the necessary steps for your operating system. For example environment variables. But look in the installation log file ... specifically what failed.

          BTW: When it asked whether you wanted to continue ... why didn't you answer "Y"?

              which takes me back to the question I asked that you did not answer. Did you print a copy of the installation docs from Oracle and follow them? Did you make sure you had the right versions of the right files? Did you make sure the path variable was correct in your environment?

              It strikes me that the answer is no but as I can not see your monitor from here that is just a guess.

                this is fixed
                this is a xwidows problem.
                thanks

                  Hi there,

                  I am getting the same problem while oracle installation. Could you please share the solution that you found.

                  Thanks!

                    after xclock works without error, the OUI can start.
