Hi,

I am trying to get oracle instant client working, I have it installed with sql plus, and have added the env variables to apache's startup. The problem I am having with some others is that I cannot build php and mod_php with oci8, it finds my client libraries, but fails to start compiling php:

Code:

checking for Oracle-OCI8 support... yes
checking Oracle Install-Dir... /usr/lib/oracle/10.1.0.2/client/
checking Oracle version... 10.1
checking for OCILobIsTemporary in -lclntsh... no
checking for OCILobIsTemporary in -locijdbc8... no
checking for Adabas support... no
checking for SAP DB support... no
checking for Solid support... no
checking for IBM DB2 support... no
checking for Empress support... no
checking for Empress local access support... no
checking for Birdstep support... no
checking for a custom ODBC support... no
checking for iODBC support... no
checking for Easysoft ODBC-ODBC Bridge support... no
checking for unixODBC support... no
checking for DBMaker support... no
checking for Oracle-ORACLE support... no
checking whether to enable user-space object overloading support... yes
checking for Ovrimos SQL Server support... no
checking whether to enable pcntl support... yes
checking for fork... no
configure: error: pcntl: fork() not supported by this platform

!!! ERROR: dev-php/php-4.3.8 failed.
!!! Function econf, Line 362, Exitcode 1
!!! econf failed


Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thanks,
Walter

Did you ever find a solution for this?

I am facing the exact same thing with a 4.3.9 ebuild:

checking for fork... no
configure: error: pcntl: fork() not supported by this platform

nothing i have tried will allow oci support to be built into php using the ebuild

Hi,

Unfortunately, I haven't, and I need to have Oracle up ASAP as I am going to have a professor repeating himself on Tuesday... I need to get this fixed badly.

you cannot compile oci8 support with the instant client. thats all. the needed headerfiles are not included. install the nice 380mb client from oracle.

That is interesting, I thought that was the entire purpose of the instant client. I guess I will have to more reading.

the purpose of the instant client is to "get your application running". thats different from developing and compiling things.
