Ours is a RHEL 5 64 bit machine and I am trying to install Jboss using
the utility JBossMySQL.bin. I am actually connecting to this machine
from my local machine using putty. This utility file does not support
console mode installation and supports only GUI.

For the GUI to come up, I tried setting the X11 by installing XORG and
have XMING server run on my local machine on 0.0. Now I am trying to
install by issuing the command DISPLAY=<IP address of my local
machine>:0.0 ./JBossMySQL.bin . But I get this error -
Launching installer...

Invocation of this Java Application has caused an
InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)

When I googled for this error, it says that an option headless has to
be set to true. I have read through the manuals where it says this
utility installs the JDK needed by itself. Could somebody please tell me
how I work around this issue?
