  1. Browse to Instant Client for Linux x86-64 download page. (At the time of this writing, the "Linux AMD64 (32-bit and 64-bit)" only provides version 10).
  2. Download the "Instant Client Package - Basic" RPM (e.g. oracle-instantclient11.1-basic- You might also need "SQL*Plus (-sqlplus)" and "SDK (-devel)".
  3. Install the RPMs using alien. For example, at the time of this writing:
    sudo alien -i oracle-instantclient11.1-basic-
  4. Create
  5. sudo ldconfig

You might need to install libaio1.


Cool! Thanks. It works on 9.04 as well without any issues.
