Symptoms

While trying to install 64-bit (x86_64) 11gR2 Client software onto CentOS 5.5 x86_64 (vmware virtual server) system, the OUI GUI does not appear after I start “./runInstaller”.   Instead, you get an “Oracle Client Installer” popup that reads:

An internal error occurred within cluster verification framework
Unable to get the current group

The only response button is OK

Changes

cat /etc/*-release shows:
CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
