I use this howto - [Thread: Oracle 11gR2 Express Edition on Linux Ubuntu 11.10 howto |https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=2301639] - to install XE 11.2 on Ubuntu 12.10.
After usage of dkg --install I saw the only content for oracle-xe which is placed before by shell:
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: OracleXE
# Required-Start: \\\$remote_fs \\\$syslog
# Required-Stop: \\\$remote_fs \\\$syslog
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Short-Description: Oracle 11g Express Edition
### END INIT INFO
That's all. So configuration then not possible because of semi-empty oracle-xe.
Evidently dpkg doesn't extend oracle-xe into the full-functional script.
Executing dpkg with various debugging options not produce any valuable information.
1. This my home PC, so it is unconvenient to use server Linux as desktop in one time.
2. I want to use Oracle XE in self-educational purposes, so, usage of paid but certified Linux - too expensive for me. Whether exist FREE alternatives for personal educational purposes? Even limited by some parameters
