(Doc ID 1529222.1)

Last updated on JULY 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Order and Service Management - Version 7.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 Just downloaded OSM 7.2.0.4 ( B1518) from Oracle support.
 
Attempted to run the installer on Linux system.  The installer reported the following error:
  "The uninstaller is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the uninstaller with the -console or -silent flag".
 
This is not an "X" windowing problem, as if I run the command 'xterm' a new  window is displayed properly as expected.
