Oracle XE isntalls on Linux but Listener does not start

Currently Being Moderated
Oracle XE 11.2.0 64-bit
Linux CentOS 6.2 64-bit

After installing and configuring Oracle XE, the configure script states that the listener configuration is done. But the database is not available and the listener is not started.
Trying to manually start listener generates the following error message:

TNSLSNR for Linux: Version - Production
NL-00280: error creating log stream /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/network/log/listener.log
NL-00278: cannot open log file
SNL-00016: snlfohd: error opening file
Linux Error: 13: Permission denied

Listener failed to start. See the error message(s) above...
