          Are you using the full DVD installation image, or the boot ISO? The boot ISO doesn't contain any packages and requires a network install source. You need to use the full installation DVD.

          Oracle Database isn't supported on Ubuntu. It's very, very easy to install Oracle Database on Oracle Linux (and almost as easy on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS), Solaris and Windows, i.e. the supported operating systems for Oracle Database.

              Yup, that's it. Have you run the Media Check as part of the install?

                yeap
                and i have got error but why :
                Checking oracle linux the image which was just tested has errors. This could be due to corrupt download or a bad disc. if applicable please clean the disc and try again blah blah blah

                but i create empty disc with 32 giga free space, i have got graphics card nvidia geforce 6300 and i am allocated 64 mega for graphics card into virtual box settings so ??? any idea

                ps. i am create disc into virtual box ( create fixed medium storage unit )

                  You need to compare the MD5/SHA digests of the ISO you downloaded with the ones on the website. The download may be damaged.

                        Are you using the Boot CD? And if yes, why? All you need is to start the system using the standard binary distribution DVD (V33411-01)

                        There was a long delay for my post to appear. Perhaps there are some technical problems?

                        Linux, Oracle and Windows have different history and often customers with different expectation, but certainly different skill sets.

                        If you want to try Oracle in VirtualBox and do not have the necessary experience to setup the system, how about the pre-build images:
