[SUMMARY] oracle installer failing on Solaris 7

G'day All,

Thanks go to Paul Roetman, Yasuyuki Hirata, Peter Bauer, Angelo Roberto 
Bonfieti Junior and Net Comrade for their suggestions. Most suggested to 
set the DISPLAY variable (it was) and to unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Paul had 
seen something similar which had to do with long path names. The 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH was not set however, and the pathname /cdrom/cdrom0 is 
under 100 chars long, even after Oracle's multiple additions of 
../../back/here style redirects (why do they do this, one wonders..).

Eventually we tried to use a response file, which theoretically should 
cause it to install Oracle unattended.

./runInstaller -responseFile /my/responseFile

Whilst it completely failed to do that, this caused the rather ugly and 
obnoxious splash screen to be skipped and the java-based installer 
started normally. Apparently the

 > Error in CreateOUIProcess(): 14
 > : Bad address

message then was caused somehow when the java program tried to display 
the splash screen..

Please wait...
