Hi. I am trying to install the DCOracle2 adapter. I am using Zope 2.5.0 with 
Python 2.2 on a RedHat 7.2 platform. I have installed the Oracle 8i Client 
and properly tested it successfully. When I go to run "make" to build the

that's needed to connect Zope with my Oracle database (which is on another 

Have I misunderstood the requirements? If not, any thoughts as to how to 
resolve this issue? When I restart the Zope server and go through the 
management console, ZOracleDA is listed as an Available Object, but an error 
is thrown if I click on the link. So at least Zope is picking up the 
directory fine.

Thanks in advance.
