I am a big fan of Ubuntu Server. It’s exactly what you need for a server, no fancy UI, just services.
Dealing with all the text configuration files can be a time consuming task and there is something that can help a lot. It’s called Webmin and it is a web interface for configuring your linux box.

You need to install first some perl-related libraries required by webmin:

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

Hey, Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) is out of beta and is now available for download here.

To see what’s new just check the release notes. From my feeling after testing the beta, It’s pretty similar to 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) but with some package updates and improvements.

Don’t wait, go and take it.

xe_logoBest way to have a easy to access XE database and APEX on top of it is to put them on a Ubuntu Server virtual machine that I start just when I need.

Installation of 10g Express Edition should not take more than 10 minutes and the steps are below:

1. Prepare the swap space
If you have less than 1GB memory run the following commands to create swap space:

$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swpfs1 bs=1M count=1000
$ sudo mkswap /swpfs1
$ sudo swapon /swpfs1

ubuntu-serverUpgrading the Server version of Ubuntu 8.10 to the latest one, 9.04 is not a big deal as I read here.

I did it in 10 minutes as following:
1. Install update-manager-core if it is not already installed:

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

2. Launch the upgrade tool:

sudo do-release-upgrade

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Good luck,
Andrei
