9i on RedHat 9?

P: n/a
I downloaded 10g yesterday and tried loading it. It complained it
required more recent versions of Linux.

I've never used Oracle before but I wanted to explore its XML features.
Does anyone know of 9i will work on RedHat 9? How about 8i? Are the
XML features in 8i?

Nevermind. A quick look around message headers shows its quite popular.

I hope the free download version include the XML features...

The 'free download' is exactly the same software (no time bombs, no limits,
no nag screens) as 'the official product'. Oracle does not charge for the
baseline software ... they charge for patches and for the right to use the
software in production.

So yes - the XML feature is included. You can get most updates from the
same place you get the 'free downlad'.

Oracle9i installation on Linux is relatively easy. A very comprehensive
guide is at http://www.dizwell.com

Slight clarification:

Virtually all of Oracle's technology software is available at no charge from
the download location on http://otn.oracle.com.

You can avoid the download by getting a 'CD Pack' either from
http://oraclestore.oracle.com or ordering the Tech Track CDs from the same
place you download the s/w. You pay for the media and S&H.

Regardless of how you get the software, there is a license which covers the
right to use the software. It's up to you to read, agree and conform to
the license. In general, the right to use in production costs money. In
general, there is no charge for the "developer's license" associated with
the download.

Once you have paid for the right to use the software, you can pay an
additional annual fee to access support and the Metalink support knowledge
base.
