Hi everyone,
I have a requirement to install Oracle 11r2 on rhel 6.5. Rhel has no gui, and I'm being told by my dba that x11 forwarding is required, hence X is required.
I have never installed X on a server, or x11 forwarding, as I feel it violates a servers integrity. X has no business being on a server.
Can anyone advise me on this?
Is there procedure to install Oracle 11r2 on rhel that does not require X?
If NOT
IS there a procedure to install a minimal gui on rhel and then remove it after Oracle installation.

Use silent install using a response file.

PS: Normally "X" is already installed in Linux. You may only need to install "X-Ming" on your desktop.
