    Hi all,
    I wonder if I could install oracle on Solaris8 or 2.6, on onother machine than a Sparc.

    I see the Oracle8i 1.7 version for Solaris is for Sparc and not for Solaris for Intel.

    Anybody have installed Oracle8i on Solaris(2.6 or 8) on PC-Intel?

    I suggest you install it on Solaris8, since this has a 64 bit API, thus allowing you to have dbf of sizes larger than 2Gb, which is not possible on Solaris2.6, which has a 32 bit API.

    Oracle 8i for Sparc Solaris are differenet from for Intel Solaris. If you want to install on PC, you must get a Oracle 8i for Intel Solaris. 8i for Sparc Solaris won't run on Intel Solaris. As I know , Oracle only have 8.1.6 for Intel Solaris, not 8.1.7
