There is atleast one problem that I have spotted and that is that
schema.Oracle contains two empty lines in CREATE TABLE
ObjectCustomFieldValues which don't belong there.
That is the second set of errors you get. The first is an indication
that an sequence with that name already exists in the schema of that
Oracle users you're RT installing in.

What I have done with all my Oracle installations is to create a rt_user
and grant resouce,connect,dba to it, install RT and revoke the DBA right
is needed.
This way you don't need to know the password of the system account and
don't have problems system creating tables for rt_user.
So, if something goes wrong during populating/making the Oracle schema,
drop the user and start all over again with a fresh empty user.


Will try, later today or tomorrow, latest release on a OracleXE db just
for fun ;-)
