Installing Oracle Database XE on Debian

There is now an apt-get repository up on oss.oracle.com for XE. Just add:

deb http://oss.oracle.com/debian unstable main non-free

to /etc/apt/sources.list and then:

# wget http://oss.oracle.com/el4/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle -O- | sudo apt-key add –
# apt-get update
# apt-get install oracle-xe

‘libaio’ and ‘bc’ are in the repository, so dependancies will pull them in if the user doesn’t have them. (Note: You will need to ’sudo’ or have ‘root’ privileges to install XE.)

enjoy it! )
