MySQL Going Closed Source

I was a little concerned when MySQL AB was purchased by Sun, however Sun had a pretty long history with open source and mostly seemed to know how to balance things. When Sun was purchased by Oracle, I was quite uneasy knowing Oracle has a way of killing everything that isn’t Oracle. Seems like that time has finally come. Thankfully there are some forks of MySQL already. It might be time to start reading up and making sense of them.

Oracle 9i and Jaguar

Anyone successfully install Oracle 9i Database Release 2 on Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar?

Tried today at work with no success

I’m looking at:
http://otn.oracle.com/pub/articles/rohrer_macosx.html

All goes good until you run that script (createDb). Runs in .0001 sec with no output.

Apparantly the script craps out at:

cat < <__EOF__ >${WORK_DIR}/init${ORACLE_SID}.ora

Source for script

Yes, the variable ORACLE_SID and is set correctly. I even used echo to make sure it is.

Any ideas?
