shared libraries

Hi,

 

I am running RHEL 5 and have installed sqlplus on a remote client in order to connect to an oracle db (on same vlan).

 

rpm -hiv oracle-instantclient11.2-sqlplus-11.2.0.3.0-1.i386.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:oracle-instantclient11.########################################### [100%]


But when I run an ldd I get the following:

# ldd /usr/bin/sqlplus
/usr/bin/sqlplus: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/bin/libsqlplus.so: ELF file data encoding not little-endian

 

When I attempt to connect to the db:

# sqlplus username/passowrd@ip_address:port/SSID                   #substituted with my own credentials

sqlplus: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/bin/libsqlplus.so: ELF file data encoding not little-endian

 

I have the correct libs on the db server is there any way I can copy these across and reload them to overcome this issue?

What does "file /usr/bin/libsqlplus.so" show?

Why not copy them over?  What you have is useless now.  Does file(1) show anything better?

Re: shared libraries

Thanks for the feedback.

 

I have successfully installed the oracleclient and connected to the db - used a different version in the end (downgraded to 10_2_ and it worked fine).
