Oracle is a company, not a software. What do you want to install? Oracle has its own linux too: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E52668_01/...tml/index.html

Check the product documentation and see what Linux Distributions are supported or see http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/...c.htm#BHCHGDIE or http://www.orafaq.com/wiki/Linux#Sup..._distributions or http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/...roduct-support

If you want to get a free Linux, then your best bet is going to be either Oracle's own distro, or CentOS. If you've read unSpawn's links, you'll have seen that Oracle recommend Red Hat or SUSE enterprise Linuxes (neither free), and CentOS is the free version of Red Hat.

Oracle may still offer a pre-made linux and DB in one.

The easiest path is to install Oracle Enterprise Linux with Oracle Database XE. Alternatively, the install for CentOS 6.x is relatively simple as well.

Have you installed an Oracle DB before?
