Attempting to install Oracle release 10gR2 on Alpha or Itanium OpenVMS
If doing a Server install, OUI gets to the "Select Configuration Option" screen.
If doing a Client install, OUI gets to the "Specify Home Details" screen.
When OUI attempts to move to the next screen, it will vanish.
The OpenVMS session which invoked runinstaller may reflect the following:
runInstaller terminated with status 1
%SYSTEM-S-NORMAL, normal successful completion
Calling: rmdirtree S1 ...
However, in all cases, the last line of the InstallActions log file shows
the following error:
String index out of range: -1
To find the location of the InstallActions log file, look at the contents of the ORAINST.LOC file located in the <node> sub-directory of SYS$LOGIN. This will given the UNIX location of the inventory directory. The InstallActions log file will be in the LOGS sub-directory of the inventory.
