    There is no Oracle software (AFAIK) for FreeBSD. If you want to use one of
    the free *nix platforms, then you'll have to go to Linux instead. Oracle
    does fully support Linux.

    As far as I know, the only way to use Oracle from a FreeBSD box is
    either:

    +Using the "Thin" Java Driver and software that's entirely Java Based.
    That should work fine. There are some pure Java generic database tools
    that might do it for you.

    +Using the Linux compatibility stuff. The FreeBSD handbook has
    instructions for installing Oracle 8.1.7 or 8.0.5 (strangely, only this
    link talks about 8.1.7
    http://iamphet.nm.ru/freebsd/linuxemu-oracle8i.html)
    using the linux compatibility stuff but you surely wouldn't be supported
    by Oracle. This probably would give you enough to run something like
    sqlplus or something like Perl or TCL modules that needed libclnt.so

    +use isqlplus on the database server and just point your web browser
    at the server from FreeBSD

    Hello Didier,
    This may not help you, but there is an Oracle DB release for Mac OS X
    "Jaguar". That is built on freeBSD 4.4.

    I found a post that may help. It is not mine, but may provide some
    clues or paths to consider:



    We use Pro*C generated executables under FreeBSD extensively
    as most of our production machines are FreeBSD.

    The trick is have the linux runtime 'emulation' and an Oracle Client
    tree installed under FreeBSD. We are using FreeBSD 4.3 and an Oracle
    8.1.6 tree tar balled over from a Linux box.

    Development and program compilation has to occur under Linux. We use
    Redhat 6.2 with Oracle 8.1.6 Client & Programmer installed. The tested
    binary is then transfered to the FreeBSD machine.

    We expect to run client binaries connecting to Oracle from up to
    1000 clients in the next year. It will be a blessing when Oracle
    finally sees the light and ports to FreeBSD.

    More that I found (again, not my post):




    There is no problem with running the Linux version of the client,
    and for that matter, the complete RDBMS on a FreeBSD platform. Just
    make sure that the Linux emulation module is loaded into your kernel.

    You can even link your own software against the Linux shared object.

    It probably is not supported by Oracle, but it does work perfectly.

    A complete explanation of the installation can be found on the
    following URL:
