Subject: Installation procedure fails with Oracle instant client

DBD::Oracle 1.18a Linux, Debian unstable ( DBI: 1.52 perl v5.8.8 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi ) Oracle Instant client ( The problem is in Makefile.PL. In line 130 the function find_oracle_home is used to guess a value form $ORACLE_HOME if it is not set explicitely. This value is used in line 138 to setup the environment (regardless which client is used). in line 1443 (sub get_client_version) sqlplus is used to get the version string, but for the oracle instant client you must not set $ORACLE_HOME (it will generate an error "SP2-0642: SQL*Plus internal error state 2165, context 4294967295:0:0") A solution that worked for me was to set local $ENV{ORACLE_HOME} = ''; in line 1463 immediately before sqlplus is called (but I cannot tell if this fails for full client installations)
