Well, Tom, it's not that easy, unfortunately.
Instantclient for Linux is quite useless because, as I said, no ODBC driver is
offered with. One must buy commercial ones, and I can't say if he will be
succesful with them either.
As of Instant Client for Windows, it is also not that clear, because if one
wants to use instantclient, Oracle Network Utilities and Oracle Windows
Interfaces must be installed. I don't know, whether Instantclient assumes some
parts are already available in Window$ (odbc32.dll or whatever). The fact is,
I'm not able to run the client this way (not that I'm some kind of guru).
We did have Oracle8 client for windows functional @wine in the pass, but no one
knows how it was achieved (some mySQL installer has been involved because of
ODBC driver, and the guy who did it even then didn't know how, not to say he
could remember now ;o) and it worked only with 200503 and 200504 versions of
Wine. I can post another issue covering the mySQL installer not working, but I
see more decent way to try to enable the Oracle client installer (in hope it
would be enough).
For now, i'm eperimenting with copying instantclient files and registering them,
but with no success so far.
So, if installer of regular client for Windows worked (version dosen't matter),
there will be one more way to try, more likely to function.
I know there is always much work and only few people available. I just want to
say "thanks" for what have been done, it's impressive, and if in some near
future version either installer worked, it would be woww for us here.
