[Linux Mint 14] ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET again and again !

Good Morning,
I decided to use Oracle 11g XE on Linux Mint. I read this tutorial Oracle 11gR2 Express Edition on Linux Ubuntu 11.10 howto included the seventh part. However, I did a minor change in the script given. Indeed, since Ubuntu 12.04, a bug appeared. So I use the following script :
cat > /etc/init.d/oracle-shm <<-EOF
#! /bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/oracle-shm
#
#
case "\$1" in
  start)
    echo "Starting script /etc/init.d/oracle-shm"
    # Run only once at system startup
    if [ -e /dev/shm/.oracle-shm ]; then
      echo "/dev/shm is already mounted, nothing to do"
    else
      rm -f /dev/shm
      mkdir /dev/shm
      mount --move /dev/shm /run/shm
      mount -B /dev/shm /run/shm
      touch /dev/shm/.oracle-shm
    fi
    ;;
  stop)
    echo "Stopping script /etc/init.d/oracle-shm"
    echo "Nothing to do"
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/oracle-shm {start|stop}"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac
#

This changement has been suggested in this post : Re: Oracle 11gR2 Express Edition on Linux Ubuntu 11.10 howto

I already uninstalled and reinstalled Oracle 3-4 times, but nothing else happened. When I want to configure oracle-xe, I have a such message :
Starting Oracle Net Listener...Done
Configuring database...
Database Configuration failed.  Look into /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/config/log for details
And this is the content of the 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

Does someone have any suggestion ?

Thanks.
