Mac Daddy: Oracle Database 10g Rel 2 for Mac OS X/Intel 64-bit
By oracletechnet on Apr 09, 2009
I was really happy to receive an email from the porting team today; reads in part:
10.2.0.4 Database (Single Instance) Release for Apple MAC OS X on Intel x86-64 is now available for download on OTN.
The physical media is to be dropped off to M&D next week.
This is a 64-bit release and provides a 32-bit client bundle as well for 32-bit customer applications. Also, available now are the 32-bit and 64-bit instant client downloads for 10.2.0.4.
The database is supported on the latest MAC OSX release - MAC OS X Leopard 10.5.4.
Thus, we finally have an Oracle Database Server release on Mac OS X/Intel. This is a happy day for a lot of people; I can only bask in their joy.
Update (4/13): Oracle ACE Raimonds Simanovskis (@rsim) has published a useful installation guide in his blog.
