If you have performed a default database installation you will need to deconfigure Enterprise Manager Database Control. Run the following command as the "oracle" user.
$ emca -deconfig dbcontrol db -repos drop -SYS_PWD <sys pasword> -SYSMAN_PWD <sysman password>
Make the following initialization parameter changes and restart the instance.
sqlplus / AS SYSDBA

ALTER SYSTEM SET session_cached_cursors=200 SCOPE=SPFILE;
ALTER SYSTEM SET shared_pool_size=600M SCOPE=SPFILE;
ALTER SYSTEM SET pga_aggregate_target=1G SCOPE=SPFILE;
ALTER SYSTEM SET job_queue_processes=20 SCOPE=SPFILE;

-- May be required if using older versions of DB.
--ALTER SYSTEM SET log_buffer=10485760 SCOPE=SPFILE;

-- Restart the instance.
If you have done a default installation as described here, the UNDO tablespace will be autoextensible. If you have done a custom installation make sure the UNDO tablespace is at least 200M in size. Also, make sure you have 3 redo logs of at least 300M to prevent a warning during the installation.
The database installation is now complete.
