As I know there is only 32bit version of 10g XE, am I right? And the installation file is called "oracle-xe-univ-".

I want to install it on Centos 6.4 64bit. But during the installation it shows me the following error message:

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/bin/kgpmon;528b4cca: cpio: read


I had 10g XE database on 32bit server.

I was taking daily backups.

Now I just have 10g XE backup but the server where this database existed is broken and my sysadmins installed me Centos 6.4 64bit on another server.

I installed Oracle 11g XE 64bit on new server but cann't upgrade database because upgrading requires pre-upgrade steps that must be done on 10g XE database , re-backup it, transfer backup to new server, restore , startup upgrade, run post-upgrade steps..

If there is a way to restore 10g XE backup on 11g XE and upgrade it without using 10g XE database anymore.
