yes, you're right that 8.0.x is quite old, but we wanted to have support
for both 8.0 and 8i. So, how can we detect, at configure time, which
libraries are needed to compile with the currently installed Oracle?

If there's no way, I'll add the changes you did so that we support the
most recent version.

ok, this is an OAF related problem. Look, at
$oaf_install_prefix/share/oaf to see if there are there a
GNOME_GDA_Provider_Oracle.oaf and a GNOME_GDA_Provider_Default.oaf . If
not, try to locate where these 2 files were installed, and move them to
that OAF directory.

Usually, these files are in /usr/share/oaf, and maybe you've installed
GNOME-DB/libgda in /usr/local?

this does not work at all, so it will say always that no provider is running :-(
to see if they're running, just:

ps ax | grep gda

And please, don't wait another year to communicate any problem you may
find :-) I would in fact really appreciate any input on the oracle
provider, since it seems almost nobody uses it (I used to, but I haven't
had an Oracle installation near me for a long time).
