Hi experts,
1) I had removed oracle9i form the sunOS , and again i try to install oracle8i in the same sunOS.

2) I m trying to install oracle8i release 3 (8.1.7) for solaris intel. But while running ./runInstaller i getting following error.
./runInstaller: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected.

My OS is ------SunOS ,Sun-Blade-100

Hi!
Sure you can install a 32-bit Oracle on 64-bit plattform.
Have you done what omarfarid suggested?

I'm sorry for the question but,

Are you using the right installer?

I support Sun-Blade-100 is SPARC? 32 bit or 64?
Oracle version has appropriate version? (32 or 64 bit for Solaris)?

EikromanCommented:
oh.. I mean I suppose it's SPARC not support

Could it be a Windows to Unix copy issue?
Did you copy the files tar:ed/zip:ed?

Make sure that you use the correct distribution set for your platform.

Please paste a "uname -a" and the compleate filename of the distribution you've downloaded.

Is there a typo in "interl" ?
If it says intel you got the wrong dist.

Just now i ran ./runInstaller its working fine.

But not in 10.12?
$ uname -a
SunOS kaveri 5.8 Generic_108528-11 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100

NOW WAT TO DO ?

peter991Connect With a Mentor Commented:
Then you have the wrong dist for "kaveri".
kaveri is sparc and kesdeeora is i386.

Hi

As peter has mentioned. You have wrong distribution. Solaris comes on two hardware platforms. One is SPARC and other is Intel. Similarly, Oracle for Solaris is different for Intel and Sparc. You need the Oracle distribution which says Oracle for Solaris Sparc

Normally the CD 1 will have a file welcome.html. This file will tell you which distribution you have e.g

Oracle 10g for Solaris Sparc
