What is ID: oracle.install.commons.util.exception.DefaultErrorAdvisor:37 and how to fix it

Today while installing Oracle 11g r2 ( on OEL 6 I faced below error.

Looking up something in the OraInstall Log.

[oracle@fcdbdb database]$ cd /tmp/OraInstall2013-12-18_04-47-35PM
[oracle@fcdbdb OraInstall2013-12-18_04-47-35PM]$ ls -ltr

Here it is oraInstall2013-12-18_04-47-35PM.err

[oracle@fcdbdb OraInstall2013-12-18_04-47-35PM]$ more oraInstall2013-12-18_04-47-35PM.err

---# End Stacktrace #-----------------------------

The cause of error most likely in that that dns does not return ip the server for the name.
Let`s check.

more /etc/hosts localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4

edit hostname

vi /etc/hosts localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4

now, re-run runInstaller again.

    Thanks a million !!!!
