    Problem while configuring Oracle 11g on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    dutt_shubh

      I was trying to install Oracle database 11g express edition. My OS is ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64 bit). Well it installed properly. Then I typed the command /home/subhajit# /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure (as root user by using sudo su) and the output is as follows:

      Oracle Database 11g Express Edition Configuration

      -------------------------------------------------

      This will configure on-boot properties of Oracle Database 11g Express

      Edition.  The following questions will determine whether the database should

      be starting upon system boot, the ports it will use, and the passwords that

      will be used for database accounts.  Press <Enter> to accept the defaults.

      Ctrl-C will abort.

       

      Specify the HTTP port that will be used for Oracle Application Express [8080]:

       

      Specify a port that will be used for the database listener [1521]:

       

      /etc/init.d/oracle-xe: line 405: /bin/awk: No such file or directory

      Specify a password to be used for database accounts.  Note that the same

      password will be used for SYS and SYSTEM.  Oracle recommends the use of

      different passwords for each database account.  This can be done after

      initial configuration:

      Confirm the password:

       

      Do you want Oracle Database 11g Express Edition to be started on boot (y/n) [y]:y

       

      Starting Oracle Net Listener...Done

      Configuring database...

      Database Configuration failed.  Look into /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/config/log for details

       

      Please help me in solving it. I need this product to be installed as soon as possible.

          Ubuntu is not listed as one of the distros in the XE Linux install guide.  You might get lucky, or you might hit something that Ubuntu does *slightly* differently.  In this case it looks like Ubuntu installs awk in a directory other than /bin.

          Operating system

          One of the following:

          • Oracle Enterprise Linux 4 Update 7
          • Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 Update 2
          • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 7
          • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 2
          • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2
          • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11

           

           

          What did you find when you looked in /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/config/log ?
