HOWTO Install Oracle Instant Client 11 on Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) 64bit

  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-11.1.0.7.0-1.x86_64.rpm). 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-11.1.0.7.0-1.x86_64.rpm
  4. Create
    /etc/ld.so.conf.d/oracle-instantclient11.1-basic.conf
    containing:
    /lib
    /usr/lib/oracle/11.1/client64/lib
    
  5. sudo ldconfig

You might need to install libaio1.

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