      Online documentation and forum threads all point to a broken $DISPLAY variable, but its set correctly and my X forwarding client works as expected with xclock

       

      $ echo $DISPLAY

      localhost:11.0

       

       

      # rpm -qa | grep oracle

      oracle-logos-70.0.3-4.0.7.el7.noarch

      oraclelinux-release-7.4-1.0.4.el7.x86_64

      oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall-1.0-6.el7.x86_64

       

      Also, cksum matched published hash on download page:

       

      $ cksum linuxx64_12201_Oracle_database_installer.zip

      4170261901 3453696911 linuxx64_12201_Oracle_database_installer.zip

       

       

      What could be the issue?
