Installing a Oracle database in Solaris 10 I get the following error;
Starting Oracle Universal Installer…

The problem is that the display environment variable is not set. In my case I access with Putty and from Microsoft Windows, so I use an Xwindows client that does this function, I use Xming. The problem is that today I have the blues and I forgot to start the Xming. Running right back and launch the runInstaller everything works fine.
