Can not install IBM installation manager on CentOS 6.5

Manh Khuc asked:

I have a problem when I try to install IBM installation manager into CentOS 6.5. I tried to install all versions of IBM installation manager (both remote from window and on GUI mode), but the same error occurred.

On the command line:

Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "localhost:11.0"


JVM terminated. Exit code=13
-jar /ftp/im/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20120522-1813.jar
-os linux
-ws gtk
-arch x86_64
-launcher /ftp/im/install
-name Install
--launcher.library /ftp/im/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20120522-1813/
-startup /ftp/im/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20120522-1813.jar
-exitdata 18000

-jar /ftp/im/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20120522-1813.jar 

Following google, I also tried to config X11 forwarding, GTK, change JRE path from install.ini, use console mode, but i still received those error.

Can somebody give me a solution?

My answer:

Your local X server does not support the “RANDR” extension. Most likely this is because it’s a Windows-based X server.

Try using a different X server, or better yet a Linux desktop (as all Linux desktops have this extension).
