Chapter 26. Installing Oracle Database 10g

This Chapter will guide you through the process of installing an Oracle 10g Database.

26.1. Installing Oracle 10g on a Remote Linux Server

If you want to install Oracle on a remote server, then you need to relink X to your local desktop. The easiest way to do this is to use the "X11 forwarding" feature of ssh. This means that you do not have to run xhost and set the DISPLAY environment variable. Here is an example how to make use of the X11 forwarding feature of ssh. Simply run the following command from your local desktop:
$ ssh -X oracle@oracle_remote_server_name
Now when you run any GUI tool on the remote server, it will automatically be linked to your local desktop. If this is not working, verify that the ForwardX11 setting is not set to "no" in /etc/ssh/ssh_config on the remote server:
su - root
# grep ForwardX11 /etc/ssh/ssh_config | grep -v "^#"
ForwardX11 yes
