some/many/most *NIX today come with odbc already installed
to see what exists on your system do as below
find / -name \*odbc\* -print 2>/dev/null 1>/tmp/capture.lis
Forgot to mention that I dl-ed from http://www.unixodbc.org/ and installed it in /opt currently using oracle linux 6. Not installed by default, too.
P.S. OK, dl-ed from the repo

Hope installing them would do the job..

I wouldn't use the old unixODBC driver manager - better get the latest release (currently 2.3.1) from UnixODBC as a couple of issues are fixed in this new driver version and 64bit support is pretty good.
As you can see from my posts above I was having issues with the latest version (compiled) and placed as it is indicated above in the path and I cant compile the demo file ...
Altho Ive pointed out where exactly is the compiled unixODBC in the make comand it returned me an error... Can someone advises me on this issue ?

There's a separate forum for Oracle XE => Oracle Database Express Edition (XE)
As people monitoring this thread here commonly do not have an XE installed you'd better post your issue in the XE thread.
