Do you have enough space in /tmp? Post the output of "df -h". Also, have you messed with /tmp's permissions? Post the output of "ls -ld /tmp".

Temp has sufficient space as you can see from the comment.....
Checking Temp space: must be greater than 250 MB.   Actual 1292 MB    Passed

In any case I am sending the output of df -h for double confirmation:

swap                   1.3G   648K   1.3G     1%    /tmp



It also has permissions for all users:

-bash-3.00$ ls -ld /tmp/
drwxrwxrwt  12 root     sys          720 Oct 31 09:50 /tmp/


Any ideas?

This may be a common Oralce installation error on Solaris. Found a lot of questions regarding this on internet, but no concrete solution.

Hi,
do the files which the installer declared missing exist?
Did you download a packed file and unpack it? Might it be that some filenames/pathnames got corrupted while unpacking?
Please check!

The directories its looking for ../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.4.2.0.0/1/DataFiles/*.jar is very well correct.

But the real folder names is ../stage/components/oracle.swd.jre/1.4.2/1/datafiles/*.jar

I am reviewing the runinstaller script to see if I can change the folder name Components to components.

If its really the folder name that's causing the issue, then its a very lame mistake by Oracle to be inconsistent with the folder names!!!.

Oops, and that's no joke?
Don't forget to change DataFiles to datafiles!
