I am trying to install Oracle Database 10.2 on OEL5U6(Linux System). I followed all the instructions from HERE. When I am executing installer this return:

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2013-08-06_12-57-33AM. Please wait ...The Java RunTime Environment was not found at /tmp/OraInstall2013-08-06_12-57-33AM/jre/bin/java. Hence, the Oracle Universal Installer cannot be run. Please visit and install JRE version 1.3.1 or higher and try again. : No such file or directory.

But Java is already installed on my system.

Is your system linux or windows??? – Ritzz081 Aug 6 '13 at 6:03
and the location of the programs are under the java and oracle database folders in the program files. – Ritzz081 Aug 6 '13 at 6:04
You're all looking at the wrong thing. The Oracle installer comes with a bundled JRE, which gets copied to /tmp. The most likely scenario is that /tmp was full when the installer tried to copy the JRE there. Look in the log file generated by the installer to see what the real error is. – Phil Aug 6 '13 at 18:43
