        Thanks for posting this, tobermei !!

        I tried exactly as you suggested and is working (no kernel panics at least) on Leopard (10.5.2).

        Mine is a development machine; so far I am not worried about there being too few processes. I've set processes = 40 and job_queue_processes to 5.

        Now, however, the listener is not starting as it did in Tiger, but that's another matter...

        Thanks again!

          I need sqlldr!

          I have instant client + sqlplus running fine on leopard, but it is missing sqlldr, which is the only other executable I believe I need. But I have a problem:

          1. I cannot run the broken installer for the full client to get the sqlldr executable
          2. I do not have a mac oracle install I can copy it from
          3. Perusing the files shipped with the installer, I have not found where/how to extract the sqlldr executable

          Can someone tell me where/how to find/extract the missing components to add to my instant client? I have instructions how to set them up http://www.nyoug.org/Presentations/2007/200703_Ji_Instant%20Client.pdf,

          I just need the physical files!

            I am happy to report that the recent release of Mac OS X 10.5.3 fixes the problem with the kernel panic when the Oracle initialization parameter "processes" was greater than about 75. I have just upgraded to Mac OS X 10.5.3 and was able to bring up the Oracle database server with processes set to 400 with no kernel panic.

              Excellent - thanks for the update.

                Hi all,

                First of all, don't care about my english, I'm French so it's not perfect, sorry :o)

                I just got my new MacBook and I need to install OracleDB on it (MacOSX client 10.5.5).

                I downloaded 10g for Mac but it doesn't work, I have Linking errors when I first click next...
                I created the user, groups, directories, sat the owner, permissions and environment variables but nothing is working.

                In the documentation I found on Oracle website they tell us to take a look at the mafe file but it doesn't exist... or I search at the good place.

                If someone has already got this problem please help me, I really need it.

                Thank you in advance.

                  Currently the problem is in the word 'new' macbook. It will be an intel machine and at the moment the 10gR1 database only runs on powerpc macs.

                    Thank you very much for the very fast answer.

                    Is there another version wich runs on Intels?

                    • 37. Re: Oracle 10.1 + Leopard

                      Oracle has only released [client software|http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/oci/instantclient/htdocs/intel_macsoft.html] for Intel Macs, but not the full database server software. If you want to run the Oracle database on your Mac, I suggest installing on a supported OS running in a virtual machine (VMware Fusion, Parallels, or VirtualBox). Michael McLaughlin has a [very thorough post|http://blog.mclaughlinsoftware.com/how-to-configure-mac-os-x-as-an-oracle-client/] on his blog about using an Intel Mac as a client for a database server running in VMware Fusion.

                            If you are running an Intel-based Mac, then a virtualization solution (Vmware, Parallels, or Virtualbox running a Windows or Linux virtual machine) is the only option for installing the Oracle database. There is no Intel Mac version of the database software available at this time.
