    Oracle XE isntalls on Linux but Listener does not start

      Oracle XE 11.2.0 64-bit
      Linux CentOS 6.2 64-bit

      After installing and configuring Oracle XE, the configure script states that the listener configuration is done. But the database is not available and the listener is not started.
      Trying to manually start listener generates the following error message:

      TNSLSNR for Linux: Version - Production
      NL-00280: error creating log stream /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/network/log/listener.log
      NL-00278: cannot open log file
      SNL-00016: snlfohd: error opening file
      Linux Error: 13: Permission denied

      Listener failed to start. See the error message(s) above...
