Installing Oracle 10g on OpenSolaris

There will be a problem... Oracle 10g claims itself to support Soalris 10 (5.10) only, but not Solaris Nevada (5.11). The trick is that there's a hidden file ".oui" in the "install" folder and the runInstaller script will call it with option "-oneclick".

The workaround is to add "-skipsyscheck" option to "runInstaller", iirc. It'll bypass the "5.10" issue and continue the installation, but ... there's no guarantee that the installation will work...
