I am trying to install Oracle 19c, and It needs X-display so I typed xhost +, but it doesn't work. Any ideas to solve this problem? Also, I want to know that Ubuntu literally support Oracle 19c.

  • "it doesn't work" Can you elaborate? What happens when you type it? Do you get an error message?

Oracle does NOT support Ubuntu. From the documentation:

https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/19/ladbi/operating-system-checklist-for-oracle-database-installation-on-linux.html#GUID-E5C0A90E-7750-45D9-A8BC-C7319ED934F0

The following Linux x86-64 kernels are supported:

  • Oracle Linux 8.1 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 6: 5.4.17-2011.0.7.el8uek.x86_64 or later Oracle Linux 8 with the Red Hat Compatible kernel: 4.18.0-80.el8.x86_64 or later

  • Oracle Linux 7.4 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 4: 4.1.12-124.19.2.el7uek.x86_64 or later Oracle Linux 7.4 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 5: 4.14.35-1818.1.6.el7uek.x86_64 or later Oracle Linux 7.7 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 6: 5.4.17-2011.4.4.el7uek.x86_64 or later Oracle Linux 7.5 with the Red Hat Compatible Kernel: 3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.x86_64 or later

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8: 4.18.0-80.el8.x86_64 or later

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5: 3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.x86_64 or later

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15: 4.12.14-23-default or later

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3: 4.4.162-94.72-default or later

Ubuntu is an entirely different branch of Linux, and no matter how many people claim they have hacked it to work, it is NOT supported and results are NOT guaranteed.

  • There are docker images now, though. container-registry.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=113:10:::::: Feb 15 at 14:20
  • From the registry description: "The Oracle Database server docker image contains Oracle Database server Release 19c (19.3.0.0) Enterprise or Standard Edition running on Oracle Linux 7." Still not Ubuntu.

  • The Oracle Linux 7 bits are inside the container image. Feb 15 at 15:04
  • The OP didn't ask about Docker, he asked if Oracle was supported on Ubuntu, which it is not.

  • Fair enough, and it may not be officially supported. But I suspect the question was really "Can I run Oracle on my Ubuntu box?" In which case docker is a simple solution. Easier by far than actually installing Oracle on Linux. Feb 15 at 15:07
