HOWTO Install cx_Oracle on Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) 64bit

Assuming we have installed Oracle Instant Client 11,

  1. Browse to homepage of cx_Oracle.
  2. Download the "CentOS 5 x86_64 RPM (Oracle 11g, Python 2.5)" (Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) by default carries Python 2.5).
  3. Install the RPMs using alien. For example, at the time of this writing:
    sudo alien -i cx_Oracle-5.0-11g-py25-1.x86_64.rpm

To test,
python -c 'import cx_Oracle'
should "just return" without errors.

Re: Palo Alto Online video startup impressed with your engineering background

Greetings Eddy

We emailed you last month - wanted to check-in and see what
your availability looked like.

The uShow product (Facebook Meets Twitter Meets YouTube) is
just about ready for launch, we got some killer celebrity
promotional deals lined up too, so we're all quite excited at
uShow. We're ramping engineering now!

If this doesn't sound like a fit for your expertise, but you
know people for which it might be - we will highly value and
consider persons referred by you.

Thanks for your interest in uShow.

- Joe

Greetings Eddy

I came across your profile on LinkedIn and was impressed with
your engineering background - specifically if you have
experience working with Javascript/Python/Django.

My Palo Alto company uShow is building a breakthrough video
sharing platform.

We're startup veterans and are recruiting a top engineer to the
team right now in order to meet our Q2 launch.

We're looking for P/T contractor (20-30 hrs / wk) with
opportunity to join founding engineering team. Fair cash /
ground-floor equity comp -- product is near launch-ready and
we're looking for the best and brightest that can work with us
to launch the perfect App.

Does this sound like something that might be a fit for your
expertise/interest? If you're not interested but know people
who might be - we will highly value and consider persons
referred by you.

Thanks for your interest in uShow.

for ubuntu 10.4.1 LTS

I had to choost Python 2.6 and not unicode, and adjust paths:
 sudo -s
 cd /usr/lib/python2.6
 mv site-packages/cx_Oracle* dist-packages/ 
 rmdir site-packages/
 ln -s dist-packages site-packages

Tobias

Thanks eddymulyono. That was the missing step that I couldn't seem to get past.
