Welcome to the forums. In the future it will help others find this issue
more if you include the text of the error message as much as possible,
since that means others can search to help you, and can find this if/when
they have the same issue. Links to screenshots are just less-helpful in
that way, since screenshots are hard to (for humans) scan and (for
computers) index. Just a thought to speed things up in the future...

For those interested, the error is that the installer does not support a
graphical mode, and when trying '-i swing' or '-i console' after
install.bin the system spits out a warning about not supporting a
graphical installer, and then errors about not supporting the specified
installer mode.

What happens if you just run ./install.bin without any arguments? Also,
considering case sensitivity being a fact of life in computing, have you
tried '-i Console' instead of '-i cnosole'?

Good luck.

No matter If I run ./install.bin with or without arg - the same out is given:


HANA01:/sap01/Packages Linux/ServerTools/Disk1/InstData/VM # ./install.bin -h

Launching installer...

Usage: install [-f <path_to_installer_properties_file> | -options]
(to execute the installer)

where options include:
-?
show this help text
-i [swing | console | silent]
specify the user interface mode for the installer
-D<name>=<value>
specify installer properties
-r <path_to_generate_response_file>
Generates response file.
The options field may also include the following in case of uninstaller
if it is enabled for Maintenance Mode
-add <feature_name_1> [<feature_name_2 ...]
Add Specified Features
-remove <feature_name_1> [<feature_name_2 ...]
Remove Specified Features
-repair
Repair Installation
-uninstall
Uninstall

notes:
1. the path to the installer properties file may be either absolute,
or relative to the directory in which the installer resides.
2. if an installer properties file is specified and exists, all other
command line options will be ignored.
3. if a properties file named either 'installer.properties' or
<NameOfInstaller>.properties resides in the same directory as the
installer, it will automatically be used, overriding all other command
line options, unless the '-f' option is used to point to another valid
properties file.
4. if an installer properties file is specified but does not exist, the
default properties file, if present, will be used. Otherwise, any
supplied command line options will be used, or if no additional
options were specified, the installer will be run using the default
settings.

Graphical installers are not supported by the VM. The console mode will be used instead...


================================================== =====

Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported

The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI modes identifiers are GUI, Console, and Silent.

(X) commiting registry
(X) shutting down service manager
(X) cleaning up temporary directories

Have you checked with SAP to see what their installer expects as far as an
installer mode or UI?

Good luck.
