Could not connect to host (port 8080).

Try ( as user with oracle rights, omit -):
-lsnrctl stop
-lsnrctl start

Wait about 20 seconds and try
-lsnrctl status
You should see a bunch of output that includes the db name.

   OK but how else was I suppose to test "telnet" ??

    The DB starts fine I guess:

ps -deaf | grep oracle
oracle    5709     1  0 Jun14 ?        00:00:00 
/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/bin/tnslsnr LISTENER 

   I would expect more output than that.
