It is an absolute bitch to install on Debian, mostly because the
installer is Java-based. 9i insists of installing its own JDK when it
sees Linux, but this one happens to segfault on woody. So, you need to
go to the temporary directory where Oracle unpacks its files, install
a working JDK there, and continue the process.

8.0.5 was a lot better; the dependency on glibc 2.0.7 that version had
is easier to satisfy than the horrible Java mess.
