We are using Oracle 8.1.5 these days on Linux. Give installing it a stab,
and mail the list *when* you have problems with it (even patched, the ProC
compiler core dumps on me 100% of the time).
BTW, I have a little C library for connecting to an Oracle database, if
anyone wants something for connecting to a database to be painless. I
wrote it just to have four functions (opendb(), send_sql(), fetch_result()
and closedb()) - cute, and scary that it took 24k to implement that. In
MySQL, it would have been ~5k.
