I have the same issue like @jrborba and @kama. I debugged /etc/rc.d/oracle-xe script and it fails when $ORACLE_HOME/config/scripts/ is executed. After a few seconds something wrong is happening (when executing startup command from CloneRmanRestore.sql script) and script returns:

Configuring database...

ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel
ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE

ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE

ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE

ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact

and so on.

Just git clone this package and download from Oracle's website, then put the zip file into the package's folder and run makepkg -si

@sahbi you should copy and paste the file in /tmp/yaourt-tmp-<user>\aur-oracle-xe. But now i have another erros, like:
Write failed.
Can anybody help?

I have the same problem as sahbi, does anybody knows what to do?

This should use bsdtar to extract the rpm, the same way makepkg does. No need for an extra makedep when all the script does is call bsdtar anyway.

I have the same problem as jrborba. Can someone write a short howto?

What kind of thing I need to do to run oracle-xe? My installation ends with no errors, but oracle-xe NEVER starts, even after run Thanks in advance.

@The_Loko: Also, I was the guys who wrote a PKGBUILD for oracle-xe when it was not readded to the AUR with Git but I gave up on that project. It was not working properly as I had issues with the listener. I didn't get we had to use a sticky bit ;-)

In my version, I patched the oracle-xe file to avoid requiring net-tools and rely only on ss instead of netstat. If you want my patch, here it is:

# Avoid the old net-tools dependency and use the ss command from iproute2 instead
sed -i 's#`netstat -n --tcp --listen | $GREP :$LINE | $AWK -F: '\''{print $4}'\'' | $SED '\''s/ //g'\''`#$(ss -nl "( sport = :$LINE )" | awk -F: '\''{print $4}'\'' | sed '\''/^$/d'\'')#g' \

Modifying tnsnames.ora (/usr/lib/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/network/admin/tnsnames.ora
) to have database links with Oracle does not work (and therefore database links fail to be set up properly).

I assume the environment variable (TNS_ADMIN) must be set to /usr/lib/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/network/admin/. But I don't know how it could be sourced (or actually if it will be sourced at all) by oracle-xe.

Maybe adding this to the and oracle_env.csh should help.

@The_Loko, could you fix this issue?
