I followed this article.
But, I can't install completely.
I got some error messages.
and, I ignored them.
finally. I got TNS-12547: TNS:lost contact.
so. I failed installing oracle.
I guess this is not only my problem. May be On Ubuntu 11.10 can't install Oracle.
If someone successed, tell me. :-O

Especially when they are doing it on a virtual machine. Oracle Linux is available for free, and is certified to support Oracle rdbms and related products. So why do people insist on banging their heads against the wall and doing a hacked install just to use Ubuntu?
I was able to install Oracle 11gR2 Enterprise Edition 22.214.171.124.0 on Ubuntu 11:10 on Oracle Virtualbox VM by following the instructions from these two blogs enteries:
Using the instructions from the FTDTeam blog entry (first link above), I was able to do the pre-install setup done. I was able to start the installation but was not able to get the binaries linked properly. I was not able to resolve the linker errors by following the instructions on the FTD blog.
So to resolve the linker errors in the 'Binary Linking' step of the installation, I followed the steps posted as part of comment to the Arkzoyd blog entry (second link above) on this topic. The comment is the 3rd comment for the blog from Jeremy Schneider.
After following his steps, I was able to resolve the linker errors and from there on got the setup done smoothly.

I don't understand what you mean when you say it's never been certified. Do you work for Oracle?
In August 2010, Oracle stated the following on its download page:
" Oracle Database 10g Express Edition for Linux x86
- Available for Debian, Mandriva, Novell, Red Hat and Ubuntu"
Ubuntu is very widely used.
Is there more work that Oracle needs to do? Due to security patches, we had to upgrade from Ubuntu 8 to Ubuntu 11.10 to get a stable version of Ubuntu last year in November. And for the same reason, to Oracle XE 11gHTH
I have been waiting for this to work for months now. The instructions for Oracle XE 10 and Ubuntu 8 were straight forward enough.
Is there something that can be done to move this along so that someone from Oracle can test the instructions, make sure they work, and are not 10 page long and error prone?
