7.3.4 and 8.1.6

Hello everyone !

i have recently installed the ORACLE 8.1.6. and i had no problems.

The problem is that i created an application that used several 7.3.4 libs that i cant find on the 8.1.6 instalation.

-How can i see all the libs that came with 8.1.6.?
-Can i replace libsql by libsql8?
-How can i use libs like libsqlnet that dont exist in the 8.1.6 instalation?

Thank everybody and al help are welcome...

Re: 7.3.4 and 8.1.6

Hi there.
I hope, you installed the 8.1.6 software in a
separate ORACLE_HOME. Otherwise you are in a wee bit of trouble. It is a bit tricky, to run both versions on one machine. Change your oraenv-script, so that you can go for the different ORACLE_HOME directories.
You will need the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and the
SHLIB_PATH properly configured. Also take care, that you have the ORA_NLS33 configured in your oraenv.
