Oracle 10 XE install on OpenSuse 11.3

insserv: warning: script 'oracle-xe' missing LSB tags and overrides

You must run '/etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure' as the root user to
configure the database.

The warning about the LSB is a worrying one. It seem that LSB the (Linux Standard Base) implementation in the newest version (11.3) of OpenSuse is more strict.

I found the solution in the opensuse forum .

[…] as of this new opensuse release, LSB implementation is stricter and thus does not run oracle’s post install script.
Particularly, the problem is with oracle password.
The simplest work around i found is
0- su % to login as root
1- install the RPM
2- su
3- passwd oracle % to change oracle password, choose any pwd you’d like
4- exit % return as root
5- /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure % to configure xe db

[…]

So I uninstalled  and then reinstalled Oracle-Xe and then Done this:

xxodd:/home/knilluz/Downloads # passwd oracle
Changing password for oracle.
New Password:
Bad password: too simple
Reenter New Password:
Password changed.
xxodd:/home/knilluz/Downloads # cd /etc/init.d
xxodd:/etc/init.d # ./oracle-xe configure
Oracle Database 10g Express Edition Configuration
-------------------------------------------------
This will configure on-boot properties of Oracle Database 10g Express
Edition.  The following questions will determine whether the database should
be starting upon system boot, the ports it will use, and the passwords that
will be used for database accounts.  Press <Enter> to accept the defaults.
Ctrl-C will abort.
Specify the HTTP port that will be used for Oracle Application Express [8080]:
Specify a port that will be used for the database listener [1521]:
Specify a password to be used for database accounts.  Note that the same
password will be used for SYS and SYSTEM.  Oracle recommends the use of
different passwords for each database account.  This can be done after
initial configuration:
Confirm the password:
Do you want Oracle Database 10g Express Edition to be started on boot (y/n) [y]:y
