Yippee! 11g version of Oracle XE almost available!


#1

Oracle have released the beta version of XE in its new 11g clothes.
Currently available for Windows 32 bit and Linux 64 bit only. In case
anyone needs to play with 11.2 under a very nice licensing agreement!

Take a good look at the docs though to see what’s missing from the full
11.2 version.

Cheers,

Evening Joseph,

Hmph. No support for 32 bit linux and no debian support (unbreakable

Well, it’s still beta at the moment. As for Debian, I’m not sure if
Oracle support Debian on any release do they? (Or have I missed it?)

We use SLES 10 & 11 at work, and that was never supported, only SLES 9
for ages. We had to fool the installer with a change to the file
/etc/SuSE-release and occasionally run with the --ignorsesysprereqs flag
for the installer.

Time wil tell what they decide to do at release time.
