Hi all!

I tried to install Oracle 10G Express on debian under my VM.
It requires 1Gb swap Sad

This system does not meet the minimum requirements for swap space. Based on the amount of physical memory available on the system, Oracle Database 10g Express Edition requires 1006 MB of swap space. This system has 0 MB of swap space. Configure more swap space on the system and retry the installation.


But i can't create swap under my VM (openvz technology http://openvz.org/).

In http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=msg&goto=420& topic somebody told, that "Swap is a non problem, it just complains about it but it does not matter." but i really confused. It doesn't want to install.

Have anybody any useful suggestions?

P.S.
There're good manuals for oracle installing:
http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/linux/install/xe-on-ku buntu.html
http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/oracle.htm
But there are no description how to override swap requirement.

You could run the installer as:

runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs

cool!

How can i pass -ignoreSysPrereqs option to installer if i install it such way?
dpkg -i oracle-xe-universal_10.2.0.1-1.0_i386.deb

or, should i download an rpm archive and try to find runInstall script there?

P.S. please take a note that i'm trying to install OracleXE.
it seems it hasn't such script.

Ouch, I forgot XE doesn't use the typical installer. From an Oracle install perspective, I wouldn't know any other way with XE.

Have you tried the method the poster mentioned in the link you provided?

if you mean "Swap is a non problem, it just complains about it but it does not matter.", there's just a words.
No any explanations, how it was done.
