Especially if you have any problems. Trying to find an ORACLE_HOME Your LD_LIBRARY_PATH env var is set to '' The ORACLE_HOME environment variable is not set and I couldn't guess it. It must be set to hold the path to an Oracle installation directory on this machine (or a machine with a compatible architecture). See the appropriate README file for your OS for more information.
