If you're talking about the Oracle Database: Yes.

Read this link at Oracle's site and scroll down to Appendix D. The documentation seems pretty slim, though.

If I have time, I am going to try to load Oracle's "Unbreakable Linux" under Parallels on my MacBook. (This is their re-tooling of Red Hat.) Then if I'm really feeling wacky I'll try the database under that.

Then again, I may just go Christmas shopping. :-)

Good luck!

The answer to your original question is "yes," as outlined in my first two paragraphs.

My Frankenstein-proposal, which is separate from your question, was that I may try to install Oracle Linux under Parallels and then try the Oracle Database for Linux under that. Given the time involved, I may not get to this for a while.

oh..ok

I asked this because I've already tried to install Oracle 10 on my intel mac,
but when I start the installer and I click 'Next' I get an error

The message refers to a .err file which indicates a java exception:
Unsatisfied Link Error...

and on some forums it is stated that Oracle 10 is not yet provided for intel macs, while others claim that they don't experience any problems....
QUOTE Thanks
