Oracle 11g deinstall fails

I'm siigned on as the user who did the Oracle 11 install and it's failing:

/orahome/product/11.2.0.2/inventory: No such file or directory
ERROR: Oracle home not owned by user.
The user running the deinstall tool is not the same as owner of Oracle home
based on inventory ownership.
You must run this tool as the same user who installed the software.

    Pl post details of exact OS and database versions. I believe the error message is very clear. Pl post the contents of the oratab file.
