Oracle Universal Installer

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install for one of our customers ODI on a Redhat 5.5 64-bit system. When we try to run the installer we are getting the following error:

Current Locale is not support in X11, locale is set to CX locale modifiers are not supported, using default #

Now this guy that we have been dealing with at Oracle doesn't know what he is doing so he is hiding behind the "Oracle no supported for ODI" even though the installer probably is.

Anyway I am guessing my customer has some missing Linux package which is causing this problem. We installed openmotif22 but that didn't help, and some X packages but haven't restarted. Can anyone help out?

There were missing linux packages that after we installed the O/S with out kickstart resolved the issue.

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Did you install both X libraries (32 and 64 bits)?

The installer is 32 bit and, I think, it can find the libraries in 32 bit directories.

Another way, some foruns suggest:




but I don't know if it will resolv your problem...
Then, I was right about missing libraries. Maybe not the X libraries, but some other package!

Great that you found the problem!

I don't think it was the X libraries because we compared them and added them all in place and it wasn't enough. I know they were also missing openmotif22 but that didn't help either. Must have been some other one in our list.
I think you can use the same list of the database 10g instalation:
