Starting Oracle Net Listener...forever!?


I've followed the steps from this site:

http://www.lpvg.net/xe_on_slack.html

Everything seems fine but until this line

/etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

After I chose Oracle Started on boot then "Starting Oracle Net Listener..." appeared and I kept waiting and waiting but nothing appears

Any suggestion?


BTW, why I have to type 'sh' to run the script(oracle-xe), is there anyway to avoid this extra typing?

Instead of the above command, put this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

. /etc/init.d/oracle-xe start

To make sure it runs without using 'sh' first, make the script executable:
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/oracle-xe

Also, instead of handling the rpm's the way that page suggests, you can do a better and easier job by using the 'src2pkg' program for converting them to slack-type packages:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...kg-1.6.tar.bz2

Just install src2pkg, cd into the directory where the rpm's are and type 'src2pkg package-name.rpm' (substituting the name for each rpm of course. Then look for the packages in /tmp

Thanks for the pointers.
I'd better learn some more basic stuff first before installing Oracle.
