Installing oracle on Ubuntu breezy (AMD64)

Installing oracle on Ubuntu breezy (AMD64)
Because it is an server machine (opteron) i had to install the Ubuntu Server version
and for Oracle i needed ot install desktop packages (needed for oracle java installer ) also Xforwarding must be enabled in sshd_conf

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
ssh -X 192.168.x.x

Then I followed this installation guide

All was ok until this error showed up in console
All installer requirements met.

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2006-03-21_01-41-37PM. Please wait$ Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /tmp/OraInstall2006-03-21_01-41-37PM/jre/1.4.2/lib/i386/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution : i have installed the libXp* from my 32bit dapper box (you can copy from one breezy installed box)
cd /usr/lib
scp libXp* root@192.168.x.x:/usr/lib32/

Then i hit an java bug related to "locale" setting .

current locale is not supported in X11, locale is set to CX locale modifiers are not supported, using defaultException in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Current locale is not supported

Did a little of googling and i
found another thread with solution to start 32 bit apps that solved my java "locale" problem

install linux32 package : sudo apt-get install linux32 then as
oracle user (you have to be login as oracle user)

export XLOCALELIBDIR=/usr/lib32/X11/locale
linux32 sh runInstaller

Here is the oracle happy exit

We got some opencms mysql dump (from an windows machine) and all tables
are created with Uppercase Chars but on our db server (debian stable ) mysql creates
al database files (thouse under /var/lib/mysql/exampledb ) with small chars
So i wrote 2 scripts for converting the files

#cd /var/lib/mysql/exampledb

create an script with this content

for i in *.myi *.frm *.myd
echo $i
mv $i `echo $i | tr "[a-z]" "[A-Z]"`
run it


then create another perl script

with this content
foreach $name ( @ARGV ) {
@splitedname = split(/\./, $name);
#print "@splitedname\n";
$filename = $splitedname[0];
$extension = "frm";
$newname = "$filename.$extension";
# $newname =~ tr/A-Z/a-z/;
print "$name becomes $newname\n";
rename ($name, $newname) if ($newname ne $name );
and run it

#perl *.FRM

ps: it was wrote in rush so i know it can be done better :)
