Is there a way to set up Oracle on Mac Lion without VM?

Doug asked:

I really would like to avoid having to install virtual box just to use Oracle 11g. Is there a way to install it into Mac OSX?

My answer:


Oracle Database 11g runs only on Windows, Linux, Solaris, HP-UX or AIX.

If you want to run it on a Macintosh, it must be running one of the supported operating systems.

So you either must reboot to a supported OS with BootCamp or install a virtualized OS with VirtualBox, VMware Fusion or something else.
