Have done alot of installs over time, but this error has me stymied. Here are the givens:
2-node Linux RHEL 5 OS
Will ASM over fiber (using ASMLib)
Attempting to install Oracle 11gR2 (22.214.171.124.0)
SSH is working and runcluvfy gives no errors on wither nodes.
When running through the installer, I am on the "specify Installation Location" menu.
I input Oracle Base: /apps/oracle
I input Software Location: /apps/grid/product/11.2.0/grid_1
I hit NEXT and afeter a short time, I get the following error:
INS-08106: Unexpected error occurred while loading the view 'InventoryUI' associated to state 'inventory.'
No further details are given.
I look in the install log for this run and see these last final lines (no errors appear in this log prior):

I realize I can open an SR in MOS, but was hping that maybe someone in this forum had encountered this error previosly and might have some sugestions or a solution that worked for them. The only same error code in MOS relates to to:
Unexptected error occurred while loading the view 'GridPlugPlayInfoUI' associated to state 'GridPlugPlayInfoUI', but this has a fix in /etc/hosts, but is NOT the same error I am getting.
Here was the underlying problem that has now been fixed:
We had three user goups associated with user Oracle. They were oinstall, dba, and oper
In /etc/groups, "oper" was not present. During the install, but prior to the actual pressing of the "Install" button, check(s) are made between the groups tied to the installer user and what groups are associated with the same user in /etc/groups. Once "oper" was added to the /etc/groups file, the error disappeared and the install proceeded.
