Oracle XE, Ubuntu Hardy
By cj on May 01, 2008
After upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04 and deciding to reinstall a bunch of software, I had to revisit a quirk in one Oracle XE shell script:
The well known solution, for the OS variants where this is a problem, is to edit that file and change the tests to use single brackets.
if [ -n "$LC_ALL" ]; thenOther than that, XE is running fine for my needs so far. The XE install notes for Ubuntu are at: http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/linux/install/xe-on-kubuntu.html
elif [ -n "$LANG" ]; then
BTW, the verdict on Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 is stay with 7.10 for the time being. I'm finding it quirky and not snappy.
