I want to know if is recommended that i install Oracle Database (XE, Enterprise, Standard) using oracle-validated, yum install (from internet) or using packages from DVD - Media ?
if DVD - Media, they are can send me the commands necessary to install?
for Oracle XE 11gR2:
rpm -Uvh libaio.1234.rpm
rpm -Uvh unixodbc.1234.rpm
what is command full to install?
and about Enterprise and Express, is necessary that I install all packages from dvd?

all right... but there are many people that said is not good to use from yum install (internet), because if you install from internet, many packages is not necessary to oracle....
what you think?
The 'oracle-validated' package is actually just a specification of packages that are needed to support oracle. It will not download anything that is not needed to support oracle. If you would rather do rpm package installs from the distribution media, and thus enter into 'package dependency hell' -- well, knock yourself out.
And about oracle express, is necessary that you install all packages? similar is enterprise?What do the Installation Guides say?
