- Make sure you have your computer $HOSTNAME on the local loop line as (for cavepopo.hd.free.fr)
127.0.0.1 localhost cavepopo.hd.free.fr ::1 localhost cavepopo.hd.free.fr
Disable selinux, as the express edition of oracle server is not a full featured one it is usually used for testing purposes (or school purpose, which is my case) so disabling selinux will greatly simplify the process without being risky on a production machine.
sed -i.bak 's/enforcing$/disabled/' /etc/sysconfig/selinux
- Disable firewall, for the same reasons this should not be a problem
/etc/init.d/iptables stop /etc/init.d/ip6tables stop
Once you did this you are ok to install the oracle server.

After the reboot you should be able to reach the oracle instance homepage using :
Note : 8080 is the default port, change this value for the port you have specified during the oracle server configure script.
