In the process of setup environment for Oracle 11g R2 on SUSE 11 R2 (SLES).  I encountered some problems when reach the 2.18 Configuring the oracle User's Environment (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e24321/pre_install.htm#i1011717).

What I tried to do was to first locate the .bash_profile, then write the following to it:

umask 022
#Set the DISPLAY environment variable?
ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
ORACLE_SID=test
export ORACLE_BASE ORACLE_SID
unset ORACLE_HOME
unset TNS_ADMIN

But first, where is the .bash_profile?  I searched it started from /, could not find it.  If it does not exist, can I create one?   Where to create?

How can I "Set the DISPLAY environment variable"?
DISPLAY=???:0.0


Thanks

PS: I believe another option is to manually type in the above commands.
