Exploring Vagrant with Ubuntu and Oracle XE

I ran across Andrej Koelewijn’s article about Vagrant over a year ago, and I have been wanting to explore it ever since.  I do a lot of playing around with different things, and Vagrant looked like it would be a cool, quick way to spin up a new image of an OS.  I would love to get it to the point of being able to spin up an instance of PeopleSoft.  I am no where near there now, though.

This is just my first run through.  I set an easy goal of trying to get Oracle XE running on Ubuntu via the repositories.  Unfortunately, I learned that that repository isn’t worth the time.  Still, it was a fruitful exercise, and I definitely will be playing around more with Vagrant.
