Comments for Oracle Database 18c Express Edition (XE) RPM Installation On Oracle Linux 6 (OL6) and 7 (OL7)
Anonymous said...Excellent guide, 100% recommended, a query, when creating a database with dbca, it gives you error java lang null pointer exception?
No. It works fine for me. You can try it using this Vagrant build here.
Gerald Venzl said...Actually, on Oracle Linux all you have to do is:
yum -y localinstall oracle-database-xe-18c-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm
The preinstall RPM will be pulled automatically, no need to install it as an extra step.
Of course, one still can for whatever reasons.
I think you also have a typo in the first command:
"yum install -y install oracle-database-preinstall-18c"
No need for having "install" twice.
Thanks. I've removed the preinstall package and corrected the typo. :)

Thank you very much.
Eric Schrauth said...In the Oracle Installation section, on the line that starts with On RHEL you it has a typo I think. You say meed and I think you mean need.
Typo corrected. :) Thank for the heads-up.
