To install ASM and Oracle 11 R2 on SUSE Linux 11. The pre-installation requires:

Set the Oracle Grid Infrastructure software owner user default file mode creation mask (umask) to 022 in the shell startup file. Setting the mask to 022 ensures that the user performing the software installation creates files with 755 permissions.

Set ulimit settings for file descriptors and processes for the Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation software owner.

Set the DISPLAY environment variable in preparation for installation.

Which file should contain such information so that I can make a modification?

..bashrc for the user or in the system default file located in /etc
(assuming bash is your shell of choice).

You can check what it is currently set to by executing the 'umask'
command with no parameters. Chances are it's already set to 022.

/etc/security/limits.conf

If you are installing from the local machine at the X session (or over a
VNC/NX session), the this is set automatically for you by the X session
manager.
