When installing Oracle 10.2.0.1 client on Suse Linux 10.2, the installation fails with message –
Checking operating system version: must be redhat-3, SuSE-9, redhat-4, UnitedLinux-1.0, asianux-1 or asianux-2 Failed <<<<
To complete the install, run installer as ./runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs
To run Tora, add the following to your profile file

If Tora is still not connecting to oracle, try exporting TNS_ADMIN environment variable, pointing to the location of tnsnames.ora file –
