          Hi,

          while Oracle is not supported on Ubuntu, I had this error on OEL in OVM as well.
          This looks like you are using a pretty knew AMD processor in your computer.

          This issue happens with a 32-bit operating system and 32-bit Java software on a new 64-bit AMD processor.

          Hope you have a mysupport access. The patch you need is: 8670579

          If you have not, only other workaround would be to install 64-bit Linux and use 64-bit Oracle 11gR2.
          Even though I would recommend OEL (since Ubuntu is not supported).

          To download OEL:

          edelivery.oracle.com/linux
          Free Update server: public-yum.oracle.com
