Dear R-users,

In order to use ROracle (v. 0.5-5) package I compiled R-1.9.1 on Linux 
(2.4.20-28.9smp) and installed it. I need to use Oracle9i on Solaris. 
When executing "library(ROracle)" I got the following error message:

 > library(ROracle)
Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
unable to load shared library
/home/bonkrad/bin/R/lib/R/library/ROracle/libs/ROracle.so: undefined 
symbol: sqlca
Error in library(ROracle) : .First.lib failed

What is wrong? Is an error on ROracle side or on R side?

Thanks in advance,
