Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX

ProcedureTo Start the Graphical Uninstaller

  1. (Optional) Provide access to your local display.

    If you are logging in to a remote machine, make sure your DISPLAY environment variable is properly set to the local display. If the DISPLAY variable is not set properly, the installer runs in text-based mode.

    • Example for C Shell (machine name myhost):

      setenv DISPLAY myhost:0.0
    • Example for Korn Shell (machine name myhost):


      You might need to grant display authorization to run the installer on your local display. For example, you can use the following command to grant display authority from myhost to the root user on serverhost:

      myhost\> xauth extract - myhost:0.0|rsh -l root serverhost xauth merge -

    Note –

    For full instructions on granting such authorization safely, refer to the “Manipulating Access to the Server” chapter in the Solaris X Window System Developer's Guide.

  2. If you are not logged in as root, become superuser.

  3. Navigate to the directory where the uninstaller is located:

    • Solaris OS: /var/sadm/prod/SUNWentsys4

    • Linux: /var/sadm/prod/sun-entsys4
