runInstaller won't start.

Trying to install OWB  9.2 on RH 3 ES.  When I enter ./runInstaller:
[oracle@dwrep Disk1]$ ./runInstaller
[oracle@dwrep Disk1]$ Initializing Java Virtual Machine from ../../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.3.1.0.0/1/DataFiles/Expanded/jre/linux/bin/java. Please wait...
Error: can't find libjava.so.

[oracle@dwrep Disk1]$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Can you unset all the environment variables and do the install again?

xoxomosAuthor Commented:
It stops at the same spot.  
Tried using the installer from the database install 9.2.0.4.0 (there is an 0.4.0 for the AMD 64 install) and pointing it to the OWB products.jar file.
That installer starts ok but hangs right away copying Readme.txt.  They should drop that 'universal' from the installer name.

xoxomos:

generally speaking, in Linux, install Oracle product is a pain in the a**

but here is what you have to do, I think will shoo that error away...

you need to write up a new environment file, (iam pretty sure you have one in your linux system for Other oracle product like Oracle database).

you can make a copy off that, and change it to owb_init.sh

in this file, you set up new ORACLE_HOME, and ORACLE_BASE to point to this OWB new home.

and along with LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc.

then run this script to set up your environment variables;

then start up ./runInstaller again...

I've included /u01/app/oracle/jre/1.4.2/lib/i386/ in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH with the same results.
In the expanded files I see there is a ../../iib/i686
and a
../../lib/i386
On the machine software there is only /i386
Out of despiration , i think i'll try including the i686 directory from the expanded files in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Tried taking from the expanded files and putting them into /u01/lib_green and /u01/lib_native then including that in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  Still can't find libjava.so.
Install on 32 bit Intel hiccupped only once and i just ignored that.

can you post your installation log here?

xoxomosAuthor Commented:
I don't believe it even gets as far as creating a log.  The gui for the installer does not even come up.

seazodiacCommented:
How did you remove the environment variables setting?

can you rename .bash_profile (if you are using bash) or .cshrc (in csh) and relog in the system?

then post back the output from the following command:

$env

xoxomosAuthor Commented:
Generally just something like
export ORACLE_HOME=
Heres my su to oracle after I've renamed .bash_profile to profile_bash.
I have a .profile there too.  Been thinking i had to actually execute that from the command line when i su - but it looks like those variables were set.
I'll rename the .profile and do this again.

One of the gods made some changes that got installer to start, but it froze immediately at 'writing text file xyz.txt".  That is the same  behavior as when I tried to use the installer that came with 9.2.0.4.0.   Yes there is a 0.4.0.  It is the AMD64 linux version .

I may have to go with the 10g version of OWB which is certified with the AMD64 RH.  Hope the 9i server is ok with the 10g OWB.

Oracle has not put out a 64 bit OWB for linux yet.
Started bombing at the end when trying to link all the c.

The assumption is partially correct.  In this case, since the machine was for OWB design time repositroy only, it was not necessary to have OWB actually installed.
