OUI-10151 During Oracle Install tips

Oracle Error Tips by Burleson Consulting


The OUI error reads as such:


OUI-10151: There was an error while loading library.generalQueries. Stop installation of all products, Stop installation on this component.

It has come to the attention of many Oracle user forums that some users are finding OUI-10151 when they are trying to install Oracle on a Linux operating system. 


Oracle DBA Forums had a great example of this:

I'm trying to install Oracle 10.2 on Linux 2.4.21-27.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux.
All pre-install steps are done correctly. When I choose Standard Install in the Installer though, I get message install_directory/response/response file not found and I cannot continue.
If I select the custom install then I can continue but eventually I get:
OUI-10151: There was an error while loading library.generalQueries. Stop installation of all produsts, Stop installation on this component.
If I select the second option it runs till the end but installer never finished - shows 99% forever...

There were several suggestions given to try to resolve the OUI-10151 problem in order to successfully install Oracle on Linux, beginning with a few measures of thorough review:

  • there should be a log of the install:    /u01/app/oracle/oraInventory/logs/InstallActions2005xxx_xx_-xx-xxAM.log

  • check the disk for free space

  • make sure that the oracle user has ownership of the base directory of the install

  • make sure you are not installing into an existing ORACLE_HOME from a different install or previous release

  • use the universal installer to uninstall all products in that oracle home before you restart the installation procedure into that oracle home

After checking all of these things, you may find that OUI-10151 is still being returned as you continue to attempt to install Oracle on Linux, as it did for this particular user. 

These tips finally helped to resolve OUI-10151:

  • if you are installing from an iso image, you may try burning a CD and installing from the CD, and not from the iso image

  • you might have corruption in your inventory files (usually found in $ORACLE_BASE/oraInventory )
