Oracle Database For Mac Os X Download
Find Oracle software downloads at CNET Download.com. Mac OS X 10.4 Intel. Get the open source database for your Linux device.
Once upon a time there was a 10.2.4.0 download. Some people got it to work with the help of, but I never got it to work. Oracle says, 'Oracle Database 10.2 and 11.1 are no longer available for download. The software is available as a media or FTP request for those customers who own a valid Oracle Database product license for any edition.
To request access to these releases, follow the instructions in Oracle Support Document 1071023.1 (Requesting Physical Shipment or Download URL for Software Media) from My Oracle Support.' So, the long answer is - it's possible to get it going but truly doubtful that it's worth your effort.
Update, 2009: Since I wrote this article in 2007 there have been new releases of Oracle (including 10g Express Edition for Linux), Parallels, VirtualBox, Mac OS and every flavour of Linux. Ubuntu has become a favourite desktop Linux, and is now supported by Oracle, including a convenient XE installation. Parallels Tools now provides file sharing for Linux, and Oracle provides pre-built VirtualBox demo VMs for download.
Many of us who moaned about the lack of an Oracle version for Mac have found that we don't really need one after all. I have not updated the document to reflect these changes. If you just want a quick and easy Oracle installation, have a look.
You still have to increase the swap space as shown below, but otherwise the installer takes care of just about everything. Introduction Back in 2002, Oracle announced 9.2 Early Adopters' Edition for Mac OS 10.2. It was theoretically for OSX Server rather than the desktops and laptops we all wanted it for, you had to jump through a few hoops to get it working, it had no internal JVM, it didn't do Native Compilation, and SQL*Plus took up to ten seconds to connect.
However, I had Oracle on my G3 iMac and that was pretty cool. A couple of years later, out came 10g for Mac OS 10.3. This was a simpler install, everything worked, and we seemed to be getting somewhere. Unfortunately, there progress stopped. When Mac OS 10.4 came out, you could just about install 10g if you jumped through some more hoops - but soon there was a new range of Macs that ran on something called an 'Intel chip', and Oracle did not run on that.
So from 2006 with the whole Apple range now running on Intel, there is no Oracle product for either the OS version or the hardware platform. However, has been getting some great write-ups, as it makes use of the Mac's shiny new Intel chip to run software compiled for Intel with almost native efficiency.
A virtual database server even has some advantages, since you'll get a client-server setup that's similar to many commercial Oracle installations. It'll also be easy to experiment with configurations, and you can make a backup by simply copying the Parallels.hdd file. Note about Howard Rogers/Dizwell links Shortly after this article was written, Howard Rogers closed the Dizwell site. Unfortunately this article linked to some excellent animated installation guides that were there. These days (as of 2015), following a complete site overhaul, he is writing again and you can download his pre-built Centos/Oracle disk image from. There are other easy-to-follow CentOS and Oracle installation guides about, for example Tim Hall's and installation guides on.
I hope the remainder of this article is still useful. Overview What we're going to do is: • Create a Parallels virtual machine. • Install CentOS, following for VMware (similar to Parallels). • Install Oracle, following. • Install Oracle Instant Client For Mac OSX so we can have SQL*Plus in a Mac Terminal window, just like old times. (The Instant Client also includes JDBC and ODBC drivers etc.) • Optionally, we'll also set up iSQL*Plus, SQL Developer and anything else I can get working.
This will give us a virtual database server that will appear like another computer on the network. For most purposes we'll be able to connect to the database from the Mac, without having to log into CentOS at all. Download the software Parallels Desktop for Mac costs $79.99 (£42) at the time of writing, although you can download a time-limited free trial. CentOS You also need a guest OS capable of running Oracle.
Many choose Windows for its convenience and the ability to use tools such as or (if you must). However, Redhat Linux is an Oracle-supported platform (2006's is essentially Redhat with an Oracle badge), and is a free Redhat clone. You can buy CentOS on DVD (it's very cheap since you are only paying for the distribution costs) or download a disk image in.iso format.
It's further complicated by a choice of versions (I chose CentOS 4.4 for i386), mirrors (I chose the 'actual country' download mirror site, in my case UK), formats (single DVD rather than multiple CD) and download methods (I chose Bittorrent). (Update: CentOS 5 is the current release as of Summer 2007.) You can download Bittorrent free from.
With Bittorrent, you download a small control file such as CentOS-4.4-i386-binDVD.torrent, and open it in the Bittorrent application, which drives the actual download. I started it up and left it running overnight.
(I'm told Bittorrrent can be extremely fast, but in my case it wasn't. If you have problems there is.) Oracle 10g At the time of writing, this is Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Enterprise/Standard Edition for Linux x86 32 bit. There is no convenient way provided to share files between the VM and the host, although we can later, which allows you to access Mac files directly from Linux. Create a new Virtual Machine Parallels' supplied help explains how to get this started. Essentially you create a new virtual machine (VM) using the 'Install OS' button, and follow the onscreen instructions.
• Choose 'Custom OS installation' (Windows users get a handy Express option, but no such luck for Linux). • For the OS Type, choose Linux and Red Hat Linux (RHL is the same as CentOS for our purposes). • I gave it 756 MB of RAM (my iMac has 2 GB), and 15 GB (15360 MB) of disk space, selecting Plain rather than Expanding (it said it would run faster).
You could make it bigger, but huge files are slower to back-up, copy and so on. (However, if you install Application Express you will need at least 936 MB of memory, and a bit more disk space.) • For the hard disk image file location, I chose a spot on my Firewire drive (a subfolder per VM is a good idea). • For networking, choose 'Bridged Ethernet' (see 'Networking for Dummies' box, below). Free Music Download App For Mac. • 'Default adaptor' will do (this lets it choose between Ethernet or Airport automatically), or just pick Ethernet.
• Give the VM a name. This is the name within Parallels, not the CentOS hostname. • Select 'ISO file' for the installation media, and show it the CentOS.iso file you downloaded earlier.
Hit 'Finish' and be prepared for a ten minute wait while it formats 15GB of disk space. Install CentOS Follow Howard Rogers'. Note however that this is written for VMware on Windows, and the networking set-up steps are subtly different in Parallels for Mac. (Those who are already familar with this stuff will take it in their stride, but the rest of us may need to look at Networking for Dummies, below.) Resist the urge to use the CentOS 'Up2Date' tool in the top right corner to get all the CentOS system tools up to date, at least until you have installed Oracle and made a backup (i.e. Copied the.hdd file - or in Parallels 3.0, created a snapsot). For example some system libraries may be altered or renamed by an upgrade, and you'll have to start tweaking installer scripts to get them to work, without really knowing what effect the changes had. Note that 'Parallels Tools' are currently only available for Windows, OS/2 and Solaris, and not for CentOS.
