Just download and run the installer. I did it just this morning on my brand new desktop. Just be sure you actually start it before needing it. I use putty for my ssh client, configure the session for x-11 port forwarding. don't have to mess with setting DISPLAY in my session. I'm good to go.
I could try to set up X Server on my Windows desktop, but that would take time (never done this before)
and no guarantee it won't fail at prerequisites again. I am really hoping to be able to run the silent mode successfully, so I can reuse the response files for provisioning other environments. Is there anything else I can try before moving on to GUI installation? I am using certified OS and following Oracle installation steps to the letter. Not sure why it's giving me such a hard time. Thank you.
