Starting OUI In Xwindows

Installing a Oracle database in Solaris 10 I get the following error;


Starting Oracle Universal Installer…

Checking Temp space: must be greater than 180 MB. Actual 19275 MB Passed
Checking swap space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 22670 MB Passed
Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors
>>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/openwin/bin/xdpyinfo.
Check if the DISPLAY variable is set. Failed <<<<

Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before

continuing with the installation,

Continue? (y/n) [n]


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.
