    ORE installation on a mac - ROracle will not load

    1003974
      Hi,

      I'm having problems installing the ORE client on my Mac. After running through the installation procedure this is what I get:
      library(ORE)
      Loading required package: OREbase

      Attaching package: ‘OREbase’

      The following object(s) are masked from ‘package:base’:

      cbind, data.frame, eval, interaction, order, paste, pmax, pmin,
      rbind, table

      Loading required package: OREstats
      Loading required package: MASS
      Loading required package: OREgraphics
      Loading required package: OREeda
      Loading required package: OREdm
      Loading required package: lattice
      Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) :
      shared object ‘ROracle.so’ not found
      Error: package ‘OREdm’ could not be loaded
      >
      library(ROracle)
      Error: package ‘ROracle’ is not installed for 'arch=x86_64'

      I have followed the Linux installation guide for ORE cllient on a MBP running MacOSX 10.7.4.

      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27988_01/doc/doc.112/e26499/install.htm#autoId14

      Taking consideration of remarks on:

      http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/ROracle/INSTALL

      I'm using following packages:

      ore-supporting-linux-x86-64-1.3.1.zip
      ore-client-linux-x86-64-1.3.1 (1).zip
      instantclient-basic-linux.x64-11.2.0.3.0.zip

      Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the instantclient libs as well as ROracle.so. I am suspecting that I may have to compile ROracle.so from scratch and may not be able to use the Linux binaries here.

      Any help appreciated.

      Vincent
