Ok... I have my Oracle module compiled and it imports fine.

However, when I try to create a connection object, this happens:

>>> ob = oracledb.oracledb("foo/bar")
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
OracleDbError: LOGON caused a Error while trying to retrieve text for error ORA-12545


The (real) id and password I'm using are fine when used with sqlplus.

Is something wrong or am I missing somthing?

System Details:
	Solaris/Sparc 2.5.1
	Python 1.4
	gcc 2.7.2

Thanks in advance,
