arthmetic error on Oracle runInstaller

Post by richh.. » Sun, 17 Dec 2000 04:29:17

When trying to install Oracle8i on Solaris 2.7 Sparc got this:

$ ./runInstaller -responseFile /usr/local/home/oracle/8i_typical.rsp

Initializing Java Virtual Machine from
e. Please wait...
SIGFPE    8*   arithmetic exception
    si_signo [8]: SIGFPE    8*   arithmetic exception
    si_errno [0]: Error 0
    si_code [1]: FPE_INTDIV [addr: 0xff036d78]


After contacting Oracle, this turns out to be related to the xWindows
manager I was using. Using another one fixed problem. Why this happened
even when using a response file is unexplained. Here is message from
Oracle support:

It's most likely the wondow manager causing the problem.
Are you installing on the system console or from a PC X-emulator?
Try changing window managers and
verify the number of colors your display is set to:

       % xdpyinfo |more

   Find the line:  "default screen number:    0"

   Once you know the screen number, "0" in this case find the entry in
   output from the "xdpyinfo" for that screen:

       screen #0:
        dimensions:    1280x1024 pixels (433x347 millimeters)
        resolution:    75x75 dots per inch
        depths (2):    1, 8
        root window id:    0x2a
        depth of root window:    8 planes
        number of colormaps:    minimum 1, maximum 1
        default colormap:    0x26
        default number of colormap cells:    256
        preallocated pixels:    black 0, white 1
        options:    backing-store YES, save-unders YES
        current input event mask:    0x58203d
           KeyPressMask             ButtonPressMask

           EnterWindowMask          LeaveWindowMask

           SubstructureNotifyMask   SubstructureRedirectMask

        number of visuals:    6
        default visual id:  0x20

   Note the "default visual id:  0x20" where "0x20" is visual number.
   class for this visual should be "PseudoColor":

         visual id:    0x20
         class:    PseudoColor
         depth:    8 planes
         size of colormap:    256 entries

   If the class is not "PseudoColor" contact the X-server vendor for
   instructions on how to modify the class to "PseudoColor".
