in thread What are DBD::Oracle's dependencies (on Linux)?

We do have a DBA... We are currently using Oracle. With windows, we were able to have oracle on the computer and use the oracle database. We now want to use linux to retrieve the oracle database w/o having oracle installed. Are you saying that it would be easier to completely use a new database system then to get DBD::Oracle to work with linux?

    If you didn't have a DBA, it would be easier to get another system running.

    Since you do have a DBA, here's what you want to do:

    1. Have the DBA do a full install of Oracle on the Linux box, software only. He will understand what I am saying. You will not keep this installation for very long.
    2. With your DBA sitting next to you, install DBD::Oracle on the Linux box. It will link against the Oracle installation you did in step 1.
    3. Once DBD::Oracle has been built successfully, delete the Oracle installation from the Linux box.

    You now have DBD::Oracle installed on a box that doesn't have Oracle on it. I've already told you to do this. Where is the confusion?

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

      Ok, thank you. I guess I was just confused by all the different suggestions.
