I've been working with virtual machines. Which turned out to be a good idea while trying to install Oracle on Ubuntu Linux. I ran into a few problems.

Oracle needs this package installed before you install the
.deb package. After the package is installed with the
dpkg -i command, you are supposed to run the
/etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure command. However this command produced no response. Nor did trying to stop and start Oracle. After a bit of playing, I did the followig:
ORACLE_HOME=/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server export ORACLE_HOME $ORACLE_HOME/config/script/XE.shI still can't get Oracle to work but at least that XE script did something.
