Memory requirement installing oracle xe on centos

I was trying to install oracle xe on a centos 4.2 box ( 256 RIMM memory, pentium 4 1.70 GHz), but i got stucked with a memory requirement error :


[root@localhost ~]# rpm -Uvh /root/oracle-xe-10.2.0.1-0.1.i386.rpm
Preparing… ########################################### [100%]
Oracle Database 10g Express Edition requires a minimum of 256 MB of physical
memory (RAM). This system has 249 MB of RAM and does not meet minimum
requirements.
error: %pre(oracle-xe-10.2.0.1-0.1.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping oracle-xe-10.2.0.1-0.1


I don't know why linux reports 249Mb and where are the other 7 Mb since there is a AGP video card of 64Mb and i didn't have that problem with the windows version, but after playing around with the rpm 'install-options' i found the ones that let me pass that requirement:


[root@localhost ~]# rpm -Uvh --force --nopre /root/oracle-xe-10.2.0.1-0.1.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:oracle-xe ########################################### [100%]
Executing Post-install steps..........
You must run '/etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure' as root user to
configure the database.

I guess you could use the same force option, something like:

dpkg -i --force oracle-xe*.deb

or if you get problems with dependencies you can also use the ignore-depends option:


dpkg -i --ignore-depends=[package(s) to ignore] oracle-xe*.deb


cheers
