Oracle XE on Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex - Part I

No, I didn't read any guides on how to do this or anything, I just downloaded the .deb file and tried to install via the GUI tools (I'll get to the command line stuff eventually). I just wanted to see if it was possible out of the box with no intervention whatsoever.

I have no doubt I can do this on Machine 4, I'll try that as soon as I can figure out how to remote into that computer (It's a laptop and I prefer the 20 inch monitor...and I'm lazy).

The error message seems clear enough. The SwapFAQ should answer your question the easy way (without resizing partitions which can take some time).

Thanks! I didn't have a chance to look it up yet as I was just fiddling around.

If you had a bigger swap partition, it would have "just worked". I encountered the same issue when setting up XE on a VM Server Instance.
