assume that you also have set the correct environment variables
can you create the file in /tmp or /usr/tmp

also check the file/s permissions inside oraInventory

Hi all, 

I exhausted all ideas... 
I have an oracle user that I am using to install client on Linux server. 
I am using the following command: 

./runInstaller -silent -force -debug -responseFile 

the output is as following: 

SEVERE:OUI-10037:Unable to set up inventory. You may not have the proper 

Begin forwarded message:

Oracle user has permissions to read, write and execute everything from the 

oracle@median:~$ ls -lt -h
total 457M
drwxrwxrwx 2 oracle dba   29 2009-08-11 10:10 oraInventory
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 457M 2009-08-10 13:56
drwxr-xr-x 6 oracle dba   95 2005-07-02 13:13 client

I really don't get what is going on and what it needs in order to proceed. 
Please, share any ideas should you have them at all.
