Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Selecting an empty (null) oracle-clob crashes AOLserver on Linux

Also, why are you still running Oracle on your server? Is some dependency preventing you from upgrading? I know fixed a long list of misc. bugs in, so presumably had even more bugs to fix.

Also, I don't whether or not there are any potential incompatability issues between 8.1.6 and 8.1.7 versions of the client vs. server libraries, like you're using. If you haven't already you should probably look into that. But without knowing more, I'd assume that just upgrading everything to would be a good idea.

(Then finally upgrade to 9.x along with the rest of us sometime later, of course...)
