When I’m trying to install Oracle 10g on a Linux operating system, I got this error “OUI-10207: there is not enough disk space in the OUI swap area”, but I already set all the variables correctly upon installation. With Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 I have installed it well in which I install VMware on a 64-bit Microsoft Windows 7. Any suggestions to this? Thank you.
Error OUI-10207 on installing Oracle 10g
The very first step to resolve this issue is to increase your existing SWAP File .
You have to run the following script without the serial numbers:
1. df -m
2. dd if=/dev/zero of=/extraswap bs=1M count=16384
3. mkswap /extraswap
4. swapon /extraswap
5. cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.backup
6. vi /etc/fstab
7. Add lines
8. /extraswap swap swap defaults 0 0
Also try ( and I am saying TRY, as it is a very difficult task at this stage)to increase the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables to a file system with more space.
