21c has a lot of breaking changes that prevents the database running on "unsupported" distributions. I have a WIP PKGBUILD on my github and I currently stuck at OS Authentication error. Any help would be appreciated :)

Currently, the easiest way to install it is using the official docker image from oracle.

The previously reported error regarding the systemd service file is still present.



replace: ...exit;... with: ...exit...

Would you mind to fix this?

Additional Notes:

  • After installing the package use the following command with root to set database password and create database:
su -s /bin/bash oracle -c '/opt/oracle/product/18c/dbhomeXE/bin/dbca -silent \
    -createDatabase -gdbName XE -templateName XE_Database.dbc -characterSet AL32UTF8 \
    -createAsContainerDatabase true -numberOfPDBs 1 -sid XE -pdbName XEPDB1 \
    -J-Doracle.assistants.dbca.validate.ConfigurationParams=false -emConfiguration DBEXPRESS \
    -emExpressPort 5500 -J-Doracle.assistants.dbca.validate.DBCredentials=false -sampleSchema true \
    -customScripts /opt/oracle/product/18c/dbhomeXE/assistants/dbca/postdb_creation.sql'
  • If you are having ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact error when logging into the database with sqlplus, use chmod -R u+s,g+s /opt/oracle/product/18c/dbhomeXE/bin/sqlplus command with root to give suid and guid permission.
  • Backup database files before removing the package.

This package requires an additional dependency libxcrypt-compat (to get Without it you'll get error ... [FATAL] Error while executing "/opt/oracle/product/18c/dbhomeXE/ord/im/admin/ordlib.sql".

@ArthurBorsboom Nope, tried to reach out the oracle forum but they didn't provide any helpful suggestions about how to fix the issues. If you have any ideas how to fix them, feel free to create a MR on the GitHub.

Hi ttc0419,

Have you been able to make progress on the Oracle XE 21c package ?

DragonX256 commented on 2022-12-09 13:01 (UTC)

@ArthurBorsboom No, there isn't any plans. I will disown package now, since I don't have any use of it and I clearly don't have any time to update it.

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2022-12-05 11:15 (UTC)

@DragonX256, are there plans for updating this package to Oracle XE 21c ?

@mbw I understand I can try, but I may also be putting the wrong data for the connection and I don't know if it would be different from windows or the way I saw it in ubuntu

@williancristian Not sure if this is helpful for you. I am by now using the official docker image, since it was easier to setup, but also got connection errors (timeouts) whenever trying to connect.

I was able to fix them by adding to the JDBC string, as described here:

I would like to know how I can connect dbeaver because it keeps giving connection failure

For anyone facing the [FATAL] Error while executing "/opt/oracle/product/18c/dbhomeXE/ord/im/admin/ordlib.sql". Refer to "/opt/oracle/cfgtoollogs/dbca/XE/ordlib0.log". You need to install libxcrypt-compat as the perl binary bundled with the rpm depends on legacy api functions for libcrypt.
