Quick Tip: FRM-91500: Unable to start/complete the build on Linux Redhat 5


Oracle Forms 11g R2 Linux Install

This week I had another Linux install of Oracle Forms and Reports 11g R2 on Weblogic. As with every Linux installation, after installing what felt like a million packages that were needed for Red Hat 5 Oracle Enterprise Linux the installation was smooth.

Quick Tip to Oracle: Make a Linux patchset for every product that includes all the relevant rpm – packages for the product installation. That would have saved me about 2 days of work.

Anyways once forms was installed I just needed to compile my fmbs using on the Linux machine and I ran into this error message. FRM-91500: Unable to start/complete the build.

Oracle E-Business Suite

My compile command was: Module_type=form Module=//log_viewer.fmb userid=/@orcl upgrade=yes batch=yes window_state=minimize compile_all=yes

Which resulted in the error FRM-91500

However when I switched the command to: Module_type=form Module=//log_viewer.fmb userid=/@orcl upgrade=yes batch=yes window_state=minimize compile_all=yes

It worked fine. The only catch is when you use you need to be able to launch an X session. The easiest way to check is by running xclock and seeing that the clock appears. If not you need to set the DISPLAY env variable to your computers IP. Such as:  export DISPLAY=<IP>:0.0

I wanted to share this solution with you.  Good luck to all!

Stay tuned every Tuesday when I’ll reveal the error or bug of the week Quick Tip 🙂
