Installing Oracle Client on Frugalware

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

The full name is Oracle Enterprise Manager Console. You can download the 10g version from here. You can find a user/pass on bugmenot. After unzipping, just running '/path/toclient/runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs' (I only tried with an absolute path) should be enough. It can be installed a user, later it'll prepare some scripts to run as root.

I always replaced $HOME/orafoo with $HOME/.orafoo, when the installer asked. If you get 'no such file or directory' errors, you can just edit the relevant script and fix the path - I needed to fix /bin/rpm, /bin/awk and /bin/sed. (All of them are under /usr/bin.) A hack for the lazy ones: just symlink these to /bin, then no modification of the scripts is needed.

To your ~/.bash_login:

export ORACLE_HOME=~/.oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/
