Hi there, I am running debian 3.1(sarge, I think). I need to be able to connect to mysql, Postgres & Oracle. I can connect to postgres & Mysql but Oracle (to a remote host) is proving a pain. Following problems and looking on forums I have done the following ruby install. apt-get install ruby ruby1.8 ruby1.8-examples libyaml-ruby1.8 libdbm-ruby1.8 libopenssl-ruby1.8 liberb-ruby1.8 libsyslog-ruby1.8 libtest-unit-ruby1.8 ruby1.8-dev libruby1.8 libiconv-ruby1.8 installed rubygems apt-get install libdbd-pg-ruby apt-get install libdbd-mysql-ruby ruby-dbi-all This said it could not find sqlite library ! So I did: ruby setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_oracle However, there appers to a conflict: ls -l /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/DBD total 8 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2006-01-05 16:15 Mysql drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2006-01-05 16:15 Pg ls -l /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/DBD total 4 drwxr-sr-x 2 root staff 4096 2006-01-05 17:34 Oracle Why are they in different places ? I am assuming this is my problem. I have tried commands like: ruby setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_oracle --bin-dir=/usr/lib/ruby/1.8 but these do not appear to have worked. Any help appreciated.
