in thread What are DBD::Oracle's dependencies (on Linux)?

Also, see my comments further below.

You don't need to install the server (which, in most cases, is the same thing as the database). But you do need to install the Oracle client and the C libraries in order to build a working DBD::Oracle.

Please tell us which version of Oracle you are trying to use and what version of Linux. I have successfully built DBD::Oracle on RedHat Enterprise 3.0 AS (very similar to RHL 9.0) using the Oracle 9.2 client.



Update: This is weird. I meant to respond to the OP's other note below. My bad...

[moritz]: I must say, when I was very active on perlmonks, I got really used to the markup and all the workflows
[moritz]: and then I didn't post for a while, and then tried to answer a question. It nearly drove me nuts
[moritz]: when you try to quote part of a question, you have to know/guess/reverse -engineer what kind of markup they used
[holli]: see? a/XpF4b
[moritz]: and stuff it into a <blockquote>...</ blockquote>, which is, like, not at all bulky
[moritz]: specially if you're used to markdown
[holli]: there probably is some nodelet hack that lets you use markdown :)
[LanX]: a) well ... you can use the xml-version to get the original code w/o need of reverse engineering
[moritz]: yes, and that's the next problem: there are piles of workarounds, but not solution, no visible progress
[LanX]: b) you cahnge my wikisyntax to support markdown and stay PM compatible
