I'm trying to install the SAP ERP 6.0 on a Linux Redhat 5.4 machine and the gui for the install does not come up

Here is the message

sudo ./sapinst


[==============================] \ extracting...  done!


Starting GuiServer using:

/usr/bin/java -Xmx256M -Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/urandom -cp /tmp/sapinst_exe.24750.1283972427/JAR/instgui.jar:/tmp/sapinst_exe.24750.1283972427/JAR/inqmyxml.jar SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200 guistart=true


init: retrieving account information for group sapinst...

guiengine: No GUI server connected; waiting for a connection on host inspired.sybase.com, port 21200 to continue with the installation



My env. is the following

java -version

java version "1.6.0"

OpenJDK  Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b09)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0-b09, mixed mode)


Memory in the machine is 16 GB. I have tried bringing up the installer on a different linux redhat 5.4 machine and there are no issues there


Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated
