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 frmcmp_batch.sh on the Linux machine and I ran into this error message. FRM-91500: Unable to start/complete the build.

My compile command was:
frmcmp_batch.sh 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:

frmcmp.sh 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 frmcmp.sh 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 :)

  1. It works fine for me with frmcmp_batch after the following environment settings:
    export TERM=vt220
    export ORACLE_TERM=vt220

    • Thanks for the information.
      It would also be helpful for you to write what is your Linux version and Forms version.
      I wrote this post since I had set term, oracle_term and display and still had no luck :)

  2. When I enter the xclock command I receive an error
    Can’t open display:
    Any suggestions?
    I’m using f90genm.sh

  3. When I enter the xclock command I receive an error Can’t open display then it properly displays my computer URL.

    • Hi You can read my last reply.
      Since you did not set the display environment variable (env) it uses your PC for display. Just export the DISPLAY as listed above.
      Good Luck,
      Mia

  4. Here’s the story …..
    My system was working properly (using XVision). Last week my hard drive died. When I got a new machine, the folks had replaced XVision with Xming and PUTTY.
    When using PUTTY to run a Linux window on my PC, things don’t work.
    echo $DISPLAY shows my PC URL correctly.
    When I do an export DISPLAY=host:0.0 I receive a export command not found.

  5. I know this thread is a little old so hope you are still monitoring it, but are you actually able to use Upgrade=YES on 11g R2? My script runs fine using either frmcmp.sh or frmcmp_batch.sh on Linux RedHat Form Compiler V 11.1.1.4.0 – until I add Upgrade=YES. Then it coughs up blood and shows a list of available params which does NOT include Upgrade=YES.

    If you can indeed use that with 11g R2 pray tell how?

    Thanks.

  6. Thanks Mia. I’m impressed you found that info because I looked and looked and couldn’t.

    Great tips on your site BTW.

    Cheers,
    Rod

  7. I know this thread is old. I am getting : FRM-91500: Unable to start/complete the build.
    xclock works fine so does gedit. All the settings and directories are pointing to the right location. I am still getting this error message. Any ideas? Thank you
