in thread What are DBD::Oracle's dependencies (on Linux)?
I don't understand why one person is telling me that I need to install the Oracle database and another is telling me that I don't need to install the database, just the server. It sounds like the person telling me to install the database is saying that I need to install Oracle (and if i'm wrong, i apologize), but the problem is I need to access the database from another computer from Linux (Suse) without having ORACLE on Linux. I know that I can access the database by just installing DBD-Oracle, but I don't know what I need to get DBD-Oracle to install properly because it says that I need to set my Oracle_home environment variable when I attepmt to install it and I don't know how to go about doing this.
