I've been wary of the Oracle installer tools - especially on Linux - for years, ever since the adventures I had installing on RedHat back in the early 2000's. I would have thought it would be better by now, but I just saw this go by in the Smalltalk IRC channel:

recently I had a problem reading lots of records from PostgreSQL, because the VW driver did not support streaming. So I tried to install Oracle on Ubuntu 9 today.... turned out that implementing streaming was far easier than installing Oracle

That's how I felt about it back then, too...
