install oracle client on Debian

P: n/a

Hi,

A few years ago (2000 ?) I installed an oracle client on a linux server
(oracle8iR2 on Debian Woody) and everything went beautifully. (with
DBD::Oracle)

Now, I need an oracle client on my new laptop. (debian Sarge)

I tried oracle 10g instant client but whitout success. See below.

./sqlplus: error while loading shared libraries: libsqlplus.so: cannot

zorro@armada:~/tmpOra/instantclient10_1$
Then I tried to install the client (ship.client.lnx32.cpio)
But this seems not to be possibe on a Debian. Dee below
zorro@armada:~/tmpOra2/Disk1$ ls -al

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be redhat-2.1, redhat-3, SuSE-9,
SuSE-8 or UnitedLinux-1.0
Failed <<<<

And now I do not know what to do.
I did also try to install the old oracle8iR2 but also without success.

So, has someone already successfully installed an oracle client in Debian
Sarge ??? (and DBD::Oracle)

If yes, could I have a few tips about this install ??

Thanks
