 Oracle 8i EE install problem on Red Hat 6.1

I am trying to install Oracle 8.1.5 on Red Hat 6.1. I did download and
installed the blackdown jre 1.1.7 V3, as opposed to 1.1.6 v5 suggested by
Oracle. Based on my experience with Red Hat 6.0 (I did half a dozen 8i
installation on Red Hat 6.0), 1.1.7 is far better than 1.1.6.

The problem is, the "runInstaller" gave:

Initializing Java Virtual Machine from /usr/local/jre/bin/jre. Please
wait...
Error in CreateOUIProcess(): -1
: Bad address

I guess the installer did find the jre (which I can also run from OS
prompt). However, it has some problem to start it correctly. Any idea?

I don't know if the following problem with my Red Hat 6.1 installation is
relevant or helpful:
When I login as oracle to GNOME and try to start terminal, I get an error
message saying that my "unix98 ptys" is not correctly setup and I could not
get the OS prompt in the terminal window.

Thanks in Advance.

Hello,

Have you purchased the product (Oracle 8.1.5) or did you get it for free
(download or CD). Where to find this product ?

I'm sorry, this is not the reply you expected.

Cheers,
Max.

As far as I know, there is no non-graphic installation interface for Oracle
8i. (There is a character mode installation interface for Oracle 8.0.5
though.)
