I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 (using Update Manager), and it works fine with no issues.
In which I am using SQL Developer 3.2.20.09 and it works fine. Now a newer version was released on May 5th 2014, and I would like to use it, as it works fine with JDK 1.7. I followed the installation instructions provided by Oracle, but it fails to install.
Downloaded sqldeveloper-184.108.40.206.21-1.noarch.rpm from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/downloads/index.html
Followed installation instructions from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/downloads/sqldev-install-linux-1969676.html using the command:
rpm -Uhv sqldeveloper-220.127.116.11.21-1.noarch.rpm
which resulted in:
rpm: RPM should not be used directly install RPM packages, use Alien instead! rpm: However assuming you know what you are doing... error: Failed dependencies: /bin/sh is needed by sqldeveloper-18.104.22.168.48-1.noarch
Used Alien to install the RPM package:
sudo alien sqldeveloper-22.214.171.124.48-1.noarch.rpm
which resulted in this error:
error: db5 error(-30969) from dbenv->open: BDB0091 DB_VERSION_MISMATCH: Database environment version mismatch error: cannot open Packages index using db5 - (-30969) error: cannot open Packages database in /home/arthanarisamy/.rpmdb
Should any package be updated manually, or have I missed updating while upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04?
