Ruby-oci8 install problem. Oracle instant client + os x + ra

Hi all,

Perhaps some of you may be able to shed some light on the following. I
have oracle express installed on a window machine. I have installed
oracle instant client on my macbook and can connect with sqlplus and
via
a browser no problem.

So far so good.

Now I want to install OCI8 driver to use oracle with rails. I run the
following command:

ruby setup.rb config – --with-instant-client=/opt/oracle/instantclient10_1/

But it halts at this point:

checking for gcc… no
checking for LP64… no
checking for ruby header… ok
checking for OCIInitialize()… No

I have no idea what’s going on here. I have attached some logs & error
messages below (apologies for length of this post). Perhaps someone can
point me in the right direction?

Many Thanks,

Barry.


error message from command

checking for gcc… no

checking for LP64… no

--------------- common error message --------------

If you use Oracle instant client, try with --with-instant-client.

zip package:

ruby setup.rb config –
–with-instant-client=/path/to/instantclient10_1

rpm package:

ruby setup.rb config – --with-instant-client

The latest version of oraconf.rb may solve the problem.

http://rubyforge.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/ruby-oci8/ext/oci8/oraconf.rb?cvsroot=ruby-oci8&only_with_tag=MAIN

You may need to set a environment variable:

For reasons known only to themselves, Oracle has yet to release an
Instant Client built for the new Intel Macs. One ‘fix’ (which I
hesitate even to mention) is to build both the client and Ruby itself
for PowerPC. That way OS X will run them under the ‘Rosetta’ emulation
layer.

A better fix would be opening an Oracle ticket to get them to release
Intel-compatible libraries for the Mac. It’s really irritating,
because Ruby works great with Oracle.

Hi, Keeny,

     I have no OS X environment, I just have Linux environment. But 

for
now, I still have one thing to hint you:
It seems that you had not set env variable $LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH before you ran "ruby setup.rb config –
–with-instant-client=/opt

/oracle/instantclient10_1/". I think this might be the cause. So if you
had not, pls do set the env variable and have a try again.

Rgds,
Shiwei
