Dear Oracle Experts,
I came across the following problem when trying to update my Oracle 9.2 to Oracle 126.96.36.199
When I typed > ./runInstaller for the Oracle 188.8.131.52 patch. I get the following error.
"You do not have permission to write to the inventory /oracle/product/db/920/$ORACLE_HOME. Installation cannot continue.: Permission denied"
The following environment are set at my $HOME/.profile
ORACLE_BASE=/subex/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
ORACLE_HOME=/oracle/product/db/920; export ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_SID=ranger; export ORACLE_SID
What did I do wrong? It was ok the day before when I installed the oracle software. Now when I did ./runInstaller for the oracle software, I get the above error as well. Please do help.
I am login as Oracle who is currently the owner for the Oracle Software.
Thank you very much for your kind attention.
