Install Oracle 11g on CenotOS 6.2 64 bit

Hi everyone, I am trying to install Oracle 11g on CenotOS 6.2 64 bit (this is a linode server).
I am doing these steps (some details are missed):
1. yum install libaio bc flex
2. rpm -ivh oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm
3. /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

Starting Oracle Net Listener...Done
Configuring database...
Database Configuration failed. Look into log for detail

Logs: ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
Linux-x86_64 Error: 2: No such file or directory
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [SKGMHASH], [1], [18446744072646661188], [0], [0], [], [], [], [], [], [], []
Create controlfile reuse set database "XE"

I have found some solutions on google and one of them is the correct /etc/hosts settings. Could please somebody advise if I have the correct setting: localhost.localdomain localhost li448-248 centos public ip private ip

Or may be somebody came across with the similar issues?

Oracle 11g is not really a free database .You really DO need to buy the required license
also Oracle has there OWN version of RHEL to run their database on. It's called "unbreakable Linux"

have you looked on the Oracle web site and through the install instructions ?

Linux-x86_64 Error: 2: No such file or directory
i am guessing but it looks like you need to install the kernel source
su -
yum install kernel-devel
