RE: [gnome-db]Solaris 8 install


I have gnome db 0.2.3 and I checked and there are ofa files. 

I ran gnone db fe again. When I select manager to enter a new connection
it keeps telling me no providers defined. When I click on Providers there are none defined.

So first how do I add an Oracle provider?

You should instead look at /usr/share/oaf (or whatever directory OAF is
using on your system), which is where the .oaf files (the files where
the components are described) are installed.

If there are some GNOME_DB_* or/and GNOME_GDA_* files, gnome-db/libgda
is installed ok. If not, try to find them and copy them to the correct

if you install the latest release (0.2.9), you'll have a wizard which
guides you
through all the process of setting the whole thing up. If you're using
an older
version, just click on the Manager button (on the left toolbar), and
fill up the
fields that appear, and then click the small "New" button. But well, I
guess that
this won't work for you, since the components don't seem to be
