Please advise on the steps required to install OWB 10.2.0.1

My database is 10.2.0.4 on Red Hat AS4

I would like a client/server build.

I am struggling to install the software with the error "Error in invoking target 'isqlldr' of makefile '<ORACLE_HOME>/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk'

After installing the software, then what do I do? I believe I need to run reposinst.sh to create a repository. I can't find this file. Where should it be?

Please help urgently.

Sorry I forgot to mention that I already tried that fix but it didn't work for me so I have raised a TAR. Apart from the error, have you installed OWB? What steps did you follow?

I think some environment variables are missing or incorrect.
Check all prerequisites in the installation manual.
Installation of Oracle products on Linux is always a challenge
and the first step is to be very accurate with all OS prerequisites.

Also possibly you have to use different Oracle user as that dedicated to the Oracle instance.

I have overcome the issue now by following these steps:

I unset ORACLE_HOME
unset ORACLE_BASE

Set new ORACLE_HOME as I did before

Followed the steps to use a new inventory

Also this time around, I used a different HOME name during installation.

I need the steps to implement OWB in 10g.

Did you install IWB in the same HOME where was the DB?
Do you use different OS users?
If they are different there will not be mess with the parameters.

I always installed OWB in a separate home according to the documentation.
I used the same oracle user

It has worked.
