Article ID: 293  |  Last updated: 11 May, 2017

Problem

After installing the Oracle OCI driver for native database access, you cannot connect to Oracle databases on Linux and the following error is returned:

‘The Qt OCI driver was unavailable. Make sure that the RDBMS client libraries are installed.’

Cause

Some Linux distributions do not install the libaio.so.1 library, which is a required dependency for the Oracle client libraries.

Solution

Manually install the libaio.so.1 library from the Linux distribution package management system. Refer to the Linux distribution help for information.
