Does anyone know how to install the OCI8 ruby interface on Debian64
without having to install Oracle?
My understanding, from experience with Debian i386, is that you need
Oracle (specifically the SQLPlus) installed to be able to compile
OCI8. Since my new dev machine is AMD64 running Debian, I’m stuck.
My rails applications need to connect to a remote Oracle 10g, but
cannot since I can’t install OCI8 and I can’t install SQLPlus since I
can’t install Oracle on AMD64! “Chicken and egg”?
