In the last days I did not only spend my time approving stuff of my mentee Boris, I also worked a little bit on the linuxolator myself. Thanks to Dmitry Ganenko and a mail of him to emulators@ I was able to fix some bugs which prevented Oracle 10g Express Edition from running. While the committed fixes are different from the patches he submitted, he did a very good job of tracking down the problems and providing hints and a testcase. If no bug shows up, I will merge the fixes to -stable in a week.
Now let’s see how long it takes for someone to write a port for Oracle 10g based upon his description.
