Are you using Ubuntu 7.04 or 7.10? According to the Ubuntu package search, the package is available in the repositories. Try enabling the Universe repository in (System -> Administration -> Software Sources) and refresh the package lists.

Libaio is available as the package "libaio1" (note that extra 1).

Another way would be to edit the file

/etc/apt/sources.list and then remove the # from the front of the lines that have Universe at their end .
Then apt-get update then try again
You might also want to try libaio1 first as mentioned before.

You can search for it using

apt-cache search libaio

I update my sources.list file and

did search via apt-cache search libaio
Result I got:

libaio-dev - linux kernel aio access library - development files
libaio1 - linux kernel aio access library - shared library

"libaio1" should be the package you wanted. Just change "libaio" into "libaio1" in your initial command.

tried libaio1...
....It talking about "Insert Disc " ... which disc ?
0
 
yjwongCommented:
The disc is your Ubuntu installation CD. If you don't want to use the CD, or if you don't have the CD, open your /etc/apt/sources.list and comment (add a preceding "#" in front) this line:

# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Release amd64 (20071016)]/ gutsy main restricted

That should work for you.

You should always ask yourself _why_ you would be installing any lib* package.  Generally speaking you don't need to on any Debian-based system, as they're brought in automatically to resolve dependencies.

In this case you do need libaio, not libaio1, because Oracle-xe depends on it, and you get libaio from the same place you got oracle-xe.
