OUI didn't take it.
I set it manually like export ORACLE_BASE=u01/oracle/VIS/db/tech_st
but OUI take the value as /u01/oracle/VIS/db/tech_st/11.2.0.It's wrong!!!
And I can't change it,because it is uneditable!
But when I change the path of SOFTWARE LOCATION,for example /u01/oracle/VIS/db/tech_st/11.2.0a, the textbox of oracle base can be editable.Why?
If I delete the a in SOFTWARE LOCATION,the oracle base changed into /u01/oracle/VIS/db/tech_st/11.2.0 automatically.It's amazing but wrong!

I unset the ORACLE_BASE like
[oracle@infsgvm09 ~]$ echo $ORACLE_BASE
[oracle@infsgvm09 ~]$ echo $ORACLE_HOME
But the ORALCE_BASE patch in Universal installer is also the same as my ORACLE_HOME and can not be edit.I think it's a bug of OUI.
Your stated ORACLE_HOME looks specious. It normally would be something like '/u01/oracle/VIS/db/tech_st/11.2.0/db_1'. Notice the additional directory beyond '11.2.0'.
And actually, by default would be '/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1'. The fact that you have set it to be something so different suggests you tried to be smarter than Oracle when you installed the product and created your database.
Let's start from the beginning. Show us the contents of /etc/oraInst.loc.
In that file you should see a line like:
Take whatever value your file shows as inventory_loc, then within that directory, show us the contents of '../ContentsXML/inventory.xml'
Also, show us the contents of /etc/oratab
INS-32052 Oracle base and Oracle home locations are same.
Cause:Oracle base and Oracle home locations cannot be same. Oracle recommends installing Oracle software within the Oracle base directory. Adjust the Oracle home or Oracle base accordingly.
Action:Oracle base and Oracle home locations were same.
