    Question connect to a distant oracle database under linux


    Hello!
    i have to connect to an oracle database in a python script and i wonder if it can be done only by adding the DCOracle module or if we have to install sqlserver or s/t like that before?

    Thanks for ur support!

    Ok, delete the other post, then read this for basic instruction (it's from the php forum, but mostly applies). The Oracle client can be downloaded from Oracle Technet, you have to download the whole package (3 big files for 9i), and then choose what to install from that.
