i'm trying to install oracle 11g database in my ubuntu 10.10, following this tutorial but, at the step 11, the system asks for oracle password!

which password is it? i did not set anything yet! i've tried 'oracle', 'password', , (my system's) root password, but doesn't work! are there some 'default password'? how can i go ahead and finish my installation?

thanks in advance,

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It's the os user oracle, which you should have created in step 4:

# useradd -g oinstall -G dba -p password -d /home/oracle -s /bin/bash oracle
