[ILUG-BOM] Re:oracle in linux

Well yes using VNC or XClient is possible...! But the reason why i always used to do it via a physical console was coz anyways i had to go into the DC for putting the CD's in.
But ur idea of loopback mounting the ISO is something i will definitely try out..!
What if i have a the files and directories on the CD have been dumped and not the ISO...! Any options still available..!
Thanks for the solution...!

AFAIK, a physical X server is not required. as long as you have all the
X libs ( from the xfree86-libs or xorg-libs packages), you should be
able to install a vnc server with a simple window manager like twm and
use it to remotely install the oracle client. And about the cd, i've
used the iso image via a loopback mount, and it installs fine (oracle
server i mean, which also installs the client, i assume). do explore
this option before loading a full X server environment onto the server.
