      Hi everyone.


      Trying to install the BAO 8.0 on RHEL 7, this error appears when using  "export DISPLAY"



      SEVERE: THROWABLE EVENT {Description=[Error]}

          Hi Ranses,


          Could you let us know from where you are trying to install this? from AO box or remote putty session?

          Are you able open xclock, if not then you need to set xclock & export display setting.


          Thanks & Regards,

            Hi Amol.

            I'm using the MobaXterm to manage VM's and the xclock working well. When I trying to start the BAO installation, this error returns.


            Did I forget something?

              Hi Ranses,


              Is MobaXterm similar to putty? then verify xclcok from MobaXterm and if that's also working.


              do echo $DISPLAY, if this is not set then, do export DISPLAY = pcname.domainname:0.0


              I'm not a linux expert, you can also googled about how to set the Display when you want GUI of remote installation.


              We normally install BAO from remote putty session & only things we needed to check the xclock, x11 forwarding enabled, display setting to start GUI installation.


              Thanks & Regards,

                Yes, MobaXterm is similar to putty, and the Xclock work very well. That isn't the problem.
                Just when I'm starting the installer file this error appears:

                  It is possible "xclock" does not need all the GUI libraries required by the BAO installer. Two things that can be done..

                  1. find if that machine has different version of the library libXtst.so.6. Sometimes creating a link to another version will help. For example

                       you may have a library named libXtst.so.6.1.0. So you create a link for libXtst.so.6.1.0 naming it as libXtst.so.6.

                            $ ln -s  libXtst.so.6.1.0 libXtst.so.6


                  2. A better recommendation is run the installer in silent mode using options file. Seem BMC docs for sample: Sample platform options file templates - Documentation for BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform 8.0 - BMC Documentation

                      Hi Ranses,


                      I am facing the exact same issue. Please help to share the steps to fix this.

                        you need to install all the dependencies on Linux that TSO requires to run, as listed in this discussion.
