Description Patrizio Bassi 2005-02-09 12:06:04 UTC
i see clients only ebuilds.

why not a server one? considering that some ebuilds are even bigger (es. UT 2004 and similar games)
i don't think that's a politics about size...

version 10G

mmmm probably it's why it has a graphical installation script...

but i'm not sure it's the only one...maybe that's a shell script too

It's primarily due to the graphical-ness of the installer, and the fact that nobody has successfully automated the entire install process.

There are a few ebuilds for various versions of oracle floating around, and there is a very good document on installing it here:
