It appears that the system is missing a font used by X-Windows
Pl post exact details of what you are installing and what the OS version is. Have you verified you meet all of the minimum install requirements ?
oh sorry . I am using sun solaris 10 64bit. with oracle 11gR2 .

i am not using solaris 11 iam on solaris 10 .
and i am installing oracle RAC where the first step is to install the grid and i am following grid install guide for 11gR2
I second sb. This seems to be problem of missing XMING fonts libraries on your OS. This does not seem to be a problem of installer. Download xming fonts and install it and try giving a shot.
what is Xming ? your link suggests its for windows . . iam using Solaris.
btw when i use xclock it does display the window but i get this warning .
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset
The missing font is just a warning and not the reason for the failure. The problem you are experiencing is that your Java crashed.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: java/langNullPointerException
Are you using the right Oracle distribution for Solaris? Do you have any Java environment variables set? Could there be a mix-up of x86 and x64? The Oracle installer inlcudes it's own Java libraries. Perhaps you could try to unset all shell environment variables prior to running the runInstaller. Perhaps you do not have enough physical memory.
i fixed the problem accidently , what i found was that i was using Moba-Xterm and this product sets the display variable in his own way.
In fact one is not required to set the DISPLAY variable at all . so when i was assigning DISPLAY variable it was throwing those errors.
the solution was to just log into oracle account and run the installer witout defining DISPLAY variable.
Problems due to the DISPLAY variable usually result in other errors like "Cannot open display:"
If you use MobaXterm and use ssh -X to login in order execute a remote X app on your PC then you should not set any DISPLAY environment variable at all since it is set automatically by ssh. The DISPLAY variable under ssh -X is typically set to localhost, which the remote ssh server (sshd) will replicate back to your client Xterm.
