The 10g express edition is free. The full 10/11g is not free. Oracle doesn't support Ubuntu either. Let's just say it's a pain in the *** to do the installation, but in the end doable.

Hi, I agreed that its doable but has anyone successfully done it? I am stuck myself with installing oracle 11g on my laptop for practice purposes. I hope someone will help us out. Thank you.

is oracle 11g available for free download? I really don't mean to sound offensive or insulting ... But: If you have to ask that then I guess it's safe to assume you're way over your head with Oracle? Why not use any of the free databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL ... ?

Maybe cause he is using it for "practice purposes" (like he said). Maybe he wants to learn Oracle, and does not know which one to download - and wants to have the latest one to learn on. Just a guess.

I've helped my father out in the past setting up oracle 11g but I have no clue how I did it back then. If you look very carefully on google, you should be able to find rather detailed instructions on how to do so. Anyways, if you're trying to set up the 11g full version I would still seriously consider running a linux distribution with a rpm package install system (fedora, CentOS, ...).

Oracle 11g and most other oracle products are available for free development/education use via the OTN website (http://otn.oracle.com or http://www.oracle.com/technology).

If you want free database software from Oracle, you must use Oracle 10g Express Edition (XE) or Oracle Berkeley DB products.

Meanwhile, SQL Developer and JDeveloper are free to download and use for production.
