"Error writing to file" when installing Oracle9i
I am fairly new to Oracle and have not been able to install Oracle 9i on my Redhat 7.2 box. In three attempts to install I have encountered the same error at some point, usually early on 5% or 10% into the install.
The error is:
"Error in writing to file /usr/oracle/product/9.2.0/olap/wrksht/wks.jar"
However, it has not happened on the same file each time. I have stopped the installation of that component, but it encounters the same error on other files. I have tried redownloading the oracle disks and reinstalling, but to no avail. I read on one posting that Oracle needs to have glib2.2(rather than glib1.2) installed, so I downloaded it and will be trying that later today. If anyone has encountered this error and knows how to solve it I would appreciate the help. Below I have listed my computer configuration and I have attached the portion of the install log that identifies the error that takes place.
Here is my setup:
Dual boot system running Redhat 7.2 and Win2k server.

30 GB Hard drive split in half-- 15GB for linux 15GB for windows.

Did you guys finally find solution to the problem?
I have been trying to install Oracle 18.104.22.168 on redhat 8.0 box, for ages now. I get the following error first during install
Error in writing to file libclntsh.so.9.0
Then it is a series of errors, similar.
In the end there is the dreaded linking error... for the ins_rdbms.mk sdo_on
i just cant handle it.
What the hell is wrong?
I have done everything right as far as i know... any solutions?
