    11g XE on SuSE 10 SP2 - failed to initialize database

    923104
      Hello colleagues!
      Looks like I need your help :-) I'm trying to install Oracle 11g XE on SuSE 10 SP2 (x64). I checked some dependencies and requirements, Oracle 11g Express Edition has been successfully installed. But when I'm trying to configure:
      /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

      I see error:


      Configuring database.../etc/rc.status: line 48: test: 29 105: integer expression expected
      /etc/rc.status: line 49: test: -eq: unary operator expected

      Database Configuration failed. Look into /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/config/log for details

      And this is file postDBCreation.log:

      begin
      *
      ERROR at line 1:
      ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
      Process ID: 0
      Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0



      File created.

      ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

      select 'utl_recomp_begin: ' || to_char(sysdate, 'HH:MI:SS') from dual
      *

      BEGIN utl_recomp.recomp_serial(); END;

      What does it mean? I'm novice in Oracle but I want to learn it :-) At least - Express Edition :-)
      P.S. Thank you for answers.

          Welcome to the forum.
          What does it mean?
          ORA-1034: ... Not Available... means ... the database is ... Not Available.

          The configure must complete all its tasks to get the database created. Did you switch to the root user with an `su -` before trying the oracle-xe ... command?

          Or add yourself to the sudoers file and try `sudo /init.d/oracle-xe configure`.
