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?

Just do not use yaourt. It works with the way described here:

I guess there is something to change in the PKGBUILD once the rpm has been manually downloaded from Oracle web site. I tried to replace source=('manual://download/file/from/oracle/page/' by source=('/path/to/my/downloaded/file' but it does not seem to work. Any idea?

I hadn't pay attention before, but yes, it seems that the configuration is corrupted after updating the package.
I have been looking the documentation but I don't know how to solve this. Maybe creating a backup using the backup scripts included and restoring it later?

Have you ever tried updating with a pre-existing package install? Twice in a row now the package upgrade destroyed my existing installation and database. I think it overwrites files that should not be overwritten. (e.g. listener configuration etc.)

Didn't notice, it's fixed now.
