Hi all,

I've been trying all day to get cx_Oracle up and running on my Ubuntu 12.04 box but have failed

I'm getting an error stating that there is no module called cx_Oracle installed. I've installed the instantclient using Alien etc but for some reason its not working.

Question is, can I use pyodbc to access a remote Oracle server and if so how?! I'm guessing I need an oracle ODBC driver but am unsure of how to proceed.

I'm already using pyodbc to access remote MSSQL servers...

Grateful for any links / advice / abuse
