    hi,
    Message for developpers ?

    i use a very old version of tora on a vm ....

    i see a problem for this (wonderful) project .. i don't see a lot of help for installation or bug ...

    i'am not a developper and to get a running version with oracle connected is not easy ..may be exectp for developpers, who are 15 ?

    there is no detailed tutorial to do that (or i don't see it)

    2 or 3 years ago i needed to connect tora to mysql ... no help found, i use a another ...

      Oracle is proprietary software. *shrugs* We can't really do anything about the installation for that. Perhaps if Oracle open sourced the client library we could freely distribute tools built for their products but I'm not holding my breath.

      Does this help? You didn't mention what OS you're using except that it's old. You may have to compile in that case (it's not that difficult).

        - You're free to contribute documentation. We would all love that.

        - We have day jobs, we can't always be helping people out. Most of the time people post with no details and it turns out they should probably be asking their DBA, not us.

        - I'm probably not the only one who hates SF's forums. Things get lost. Try the mailing lists, they're much easier to reply to.
