Oracle 10g Installation Problem on SUSE Linux 10

Hello Friends,

I want to install SAP Solution Manager 7.0 with Oracle 10g on SUSE Linux 10.0.

But, while starting the Installation i am getting following Errors.

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be redhat-3, SuSE-9, redhat-4, UnitedLinux-1.0, asianux-1,
 asianux-2 or SuSE-10
                                      Passed


All installer requirements met.

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2009-04-22_03-59-38PM. Please wait ...
Error in writing to directory /tmp/OraInstall2009-04-22_03-59-38PM. Please ensure that this directory is
 writable and has atleast 60 MB of disk space. Installation cannot continue.

I have checked the Permissions and the Size of /tmp Directory, which is as followed:

drwxr-xr-x  11 root root    0 2009-04-22 21:19 sys
drwxrwxrwt  52 root root 1824 2009-04-22 16:00 tmp

/dev/sda10             2104376     73112   2031264   4% /tmp

I am starting the Oracle 10g Installation within orasm7 User which is a member of dba, users, disk groups.

The directories which are created upon starting the Oracle Installation in /tmp directory are having the situations as followed:

drwxr-xr-x 3 orasm7   dba          128 2009-04-21 18:41 OraInstall2009-04-21_06-41-14PM
drwxr-xr-x 3 orasm7   dba          128 2009-04-21 18:41 OraInstall2009-04-21_06-41-25PM
drwxr-xr-x 3 orasm7   dba          128 2009-04-22 15:59 OraInstall2009-04-22_03-59-38PM

The Oracle Installation log is as follwoed:

Using paramFile: /home/MyData/51031676/database/install/oraparam.ini


Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be redhat-3, SuSE-9, redhat-4, UnitedLinux-1.0, asianux-1, asianux-2 or SuSE-10
                                      Passed


All installer requirements met.


The commandline for unzip:
/home/MyData/51031676/database/install/unzip -qqq ../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.4.2.0.8
/1/DataFiles/\*.jar -d /tmp/OraInstall2009-04-22_03-59-38PM

I have set DISPLAY variable in this way before starting Installation:

DISPLAY=$HOSTNAME:0.0

export DISPLAY

I tried to search the solution over the internet for this kind of problem, but i am not able to find its solution. Even i tried to start the Orale installation using this parameter: ./runInstaller ignoreSysPrereqs, but still it is giving the same unexpected error.

I have a doubt on File/Directory permissions which are created for Installation in /tmp. The umask setiing of the system is 0022.

Please, help me for this issue.

Thanks & Regards,

Be aware that you need to do the installation using "RUNINSTALLER (in capitals) in the SAP subdirectory of Disk1 in the staging area, do not use the manual "runInstaller".

Can try to set the temp directory to a different "normal" one, not tagged as temp:

mkdir /tempora
chmod 777 /tempora
export TEMP=/tempora
export TMP=/tempora
cd /oracle/stage/102_64/Disk1/SAP
./RUNINSTALLER
