hmmm, this seems to be a typo (strange, very strange). Could you open
your libgda/ file, search for the ORACLE_LIBS variable, and
send me its contents?

no, there aren't, although I vaguely remember that it did work with only either
Oracle 8.0.5 or Oracle 8i (don't remember which one), so the problem
you're having may be due to that. Send me what the ORACLE_LIBS var has,
and we'll see what can it be.
