Experts,

      I am trying to install Oracle in Linux in a VMservre however, I get the error "Checking monitor : must be configured to display 256. I tried the xclock logged in as root and it works fine. However, oracle user returns an error "Error: Can't open display: 10.10.10.1:0.0

I have been all over the net looking for an answer  - but nothing that makes sense to me.

DISPLAY not set. Please set the DISPLAY and try again.
Depending on the Unix Shell, you can use one of the following commands as examples to set the DISPLAY environment variable:
- For csh: % setenv DISPLAY 192.168.1.128:0.0
- For sh, ksh and bash: $ DISPLAY=192.168.1.128:0.0; export DISPLAY
