Oracle Support turned us down - apparently the fact that we are running
Slackware is just too much for them. Bah!

The real problem was the /tmp only had 50mb of free space. Nice to see some
relevant messages to that fact.

Anyway, thanks to all who responded. The silver lining is that I know how to
use strace better. =)

What can I tell from the strace? I cannot see where runInstaller is looking
for any previous opened files (ie, lock file). On top of that, we have no
lock files whatsoever, and no lock* directory in oraInventory or oui.
