sapinst dropdowns are not working.

Hello all,

I'm doing a NW04 SR1 install on a Solaris 10 server to allow for migration of the current BW system onto a new server.

Current DB is Oracle9.2.0.4, but because this is not compatible with Solaris10, we will be upgrading to Oracle 10g first on the current system and then copying it over to the new system.

So I need to install Oracle 10g on my new server.

However, when I get to the 'Oracle -> Database System' screen of sapinst, the default is 920, and I cannot get the dropdown to show me anything else. If I try to overwrite it, it won't do it.

I also have a small problem where every time I enter something on a sapinst screen or select a menu option, it doesn't show up until I resize the window. I believe that this is an X-server problem, and although it is a bit of a pain, I can live with it. I just mention it in case the 2 issues are related.

Has anyone else experienced this issue with the dropdowns or have any suggestion how to get around it?

I'm using JAVA version 1.4.2_18 on the server.
