AppServer 10.1.3 aborts from OUI installer. Pre Reqs get result "Passed" as per below, then see error message. I have used >df -k /tmp and >chmod a=rwx /tmp to ensure both ample space and permissions exist to accomodate install. Yet, I still get same error. So... I created >mkdir /tmp2 and set the TMP and TMPDIR variables to it, ran the df and chmod utils again, everything looked good. ./runInstaller still gave the identicle error, only this time on /tmp2/OraInstall2007..... instead of /tmp/OraInstall2007....
See below output.....

(gdb) run runInstaller
Starting program: /opt/oracle_as10g/Disk1/companioncd/Disk1/install/runInstaller runInstaller

You said you ran the chmod utils on the dir - what are the perms on the /tmp or /tmp2 dirs?  Can you run an 'ls -lai' and post that output on both directories please?

Also - I noticed you have the 11gdb installed - are you certain all your env vars are unset before starting the installation?  I believe the only thing needed to be set is the ORACLE_BASE and TMP vars.  Please verify.
