#ABAP_Trial - SAPINST_START_GUI Error - kernel os_create_region: can't allocate %d bytes"

Hi all,

I am trying to install the SAP ABAP Trial version 7.51 on openSuSE. Running into this issue now that I seem to be stuck on:


"To solve that problem start the installation without using SAPINST_START_GUI option.."

This occurs if I try it in XTerm, or in a terminal by using Ctrl+Alt+F1 after logging off from my XWindows session. If I try adding the -g flag, it doesn't allow me to do the web instlal, simply returning that OpenSuSE is not a supported OS.

Please advise!

EDIT - So to update this, I had to run the installation with the -g flag and do it through the interface. Now, however, I'm getting a problem with it setting the sa password:

"kernel os_create_region: can't allocate 1909592064 bytes" seems to be stopping the installation. I've tried the following steps:

- mount -o remount,size=5G /dev/sh
- Verified that the timezone is set to UTC
- unset LANG
- export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
- sysctl -a | grep shmmax = 9223372036854775807
- sysctl -a | grep sem = 32000 1024000000 500 32000
- sysctl -a | grep shmall = 1152921504606846720
- sysctl -a | grep max_map_count = 1000000

Now, the only difference between my guide and Julie's guide is that I'm running this on VMWare instead of VirtualBox. Other than that, everything else is the same.

Any further ideas?

Hi Keith,

Really sorry about the delay; I have been ill.

I found the following in the Sybase Infocenter: http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/index.jsp?topic=/com.sybase.infocenter.dc00729.1500/html/errMessageAdvRes/X310039.htm

1. Accroding to Sybase "...could be a HW error...". Can you please follow their instructions and let me know how you get on. (as appropriate for openSUSE).

2. If you run df -h , what value do you get?
Thanks Julie.

Not a problem - been a nasty season for getting sick.

df -h results in this output:

vhcalnplci:~ # df -h

As far as the sybase article... I took a brief look at it, and got this output when I ran ipcs -m:

vhcalnplci:npladm 54> ipcs -m

I'll take a further look at that configuring memory article tomorrow or later in the week.
