      Hi

      being a Debian fan I am using the latest version of the depian for everything. Now my issue is want to install a oracle xe data base on my laptop powered by Ubantu.
      Now following all the instructions given in the forum.

      Oracle 11gR2 Express Edition on Linux Ubuntu 11.10 howto

      in these steps we are converting a RPM package to DEB package, but for me its failing all the time with the error.

      vipkumar@vipkumar-Lenovo-G580:~/Installers/Oracle/Disk1$ sudo alien --scripts -d oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm
      oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm is for architecture amd64 ; the package cannot be built on this system

      Can some one tell me what to to avoid this error, or any reference to download the deb package for this.

      Thanks
