Description Jamis Buck 2004-03-05 09:48:12 UTC
Oracle has provided RPM's for their InstantClient product, which is a minimal install of only the client-specific libraries.  I have created three ebuilds for installing these in Gentoo.

Reproducible: Always

Just put it under the dev-db category in portage, create the digest, and
install it.

robin, I think you'd mentioned interest in oracle and gentoo on one of the ml's no?
Comment 5 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2004-03-07 23:22:22 UTC
as much as i'd like to take care of these, i don't have the resources to test them out properly at the moment, or the time to take care of them.

having a developer that seriously does oracle stuff would be a great help, to take properly care of these.

bouncing back to bug-wranglers for now.
Comment 6 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-12 06:52:33 UTC
I haven't looked to deeply, but I assume this might have to be one of those restricted fetch things like sun-jdk so the user can click through the license agreements and what not.

Good to see this though.
Comment 7 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-13 20:02:50 UTC
Ah I see you've taken care of it all.  Fantastic.

Comment 9 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-22 12:06:00 UTC
Thoughts against naming these ebuilds oracle-instantclient-*, instead of just instantclient-*?

I'm testing now.
Comment 10 Jamis Buck 2004-03-22 12:14:53 UTC
Good idea.  Guess I wasn't thinking as clearly when I created them. :)
Comment 11 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-22 13:38:11 UTC
I added the OTN license to the portage tree.  It's same basic license as existing oracle-jdbc, and so the jdbc packages should use OTN.  I'll talk to them later.

These three packages (with oracle- prefixes) have been added to portage and masked in packages.mask.  Unmask in your /etc/portage/packages.unmask and test away.  Report back here and I'll open it up.

FWIW the sqlplus client worked like a champ for me.
Comment 12 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-25 07:40:19 UTC
Anyone have any results to report?  I'm going to assume success at the end of the day and unmask otherwise.
Comment 13 Rene Androsch 2004-03-25 10:35:46 UTC
Hm seems to work at least for my local setup. Havn't tested in any production environment.

But I'm sure, I you unmask it, and there is a problem, the problem will reported.
Comment 14 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-25 11:23:54 UTC
Unmasked.  Thanks again.

Any problems should be reported as new bugs.
