Getting Oracle 10g

Go to, and follow the prompts. You may need to create an account on the Oracle web site to download the files. For home use you are likely to only need the standard version of Oracle and not the Enterprise version, unless there are enterprise features you specifically want.

For version the files seem to be:

  $ wget

For version 10.1.2 three files were obtained:

  603M as_linux_x86_portal_wireless_101200_disk1.cpio
  438M as_linux_x86_portal_wireless_101200_disk2.cpio
  371M as_linux_x86_portal_wireless_101200_disk3.cpio

It might even be ship.db.cpio.gz

Once it's finished downloading, log in as root, decompress and extract the file to end up with a directory called Disk1.

  # xhost +
  # su
  # cd /tmp
  # gunzip ship.db.cpio.gz
  # cpio -idmv < ship.db.cpio
