I have Oracle 7i and Oracle 9i installed on my PCs under C:/ORANT and C:/ORA9 respectively. When I try to connect to Oracle through any front-end application, which Oracle will it connect to? Does it take the tnsnames.ora from the path corresponding to the Oracle version specified in the Home Selector?
The tnsnames.ora file on the client defines a service name and host for which an application will connect to. When the connection is attempted, the client will go to the host that the database resides on and the listener will enable the connection. In the listener.ora file on the database server, if a static SID list is provided, you should see the SID listed as well as its associated ORACLE_HOME.

Can I use /var/opt/oracle/oratab to specify listener information?
We would like to migrate our database from Oracle 8.1.7 to Oracle 10g. We would like to know the impact for our application developed using Delphi ...
I have been trying to install Oracle 8.1.7 on SUSE Linux 9.0 and got the error:
"Error in invoking target install of makefile /opt/oracle/...../*.mk."
