Hi,

>From last months I am using Python for making small but useful tools
for my team members. I am doing my development in windows machine and
running the program in Solaris machine where Python 2.6.2 is
installed.

In one of my program file I had to use the module "cx_Oracle".For that
I have installed the module in my windows machine and done the
programming. But the finished program does not run in Solaris machine,
may be because "cx_Oracle" was not installed there.Following is the
error shown.

root at access1:/home/amohan/python/work/broadcast_report/bin$ ./
runsql.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./runsql.py", line 3, in <module>
    import cx_Oracle
ImportError: ld.so.1: isapython2.6: fatal: /opt/webstack/python/lib/
python2.6/site-packages/cx_Oracle.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
root at access1:/home/amohan/python/work/broadcast_report/bin$

I tried installing "cx_Oracle" with easy_install utility (I am not
strong in Solaris). While installing I am getting some error as shown
below.

I have searched for a solution everywhere and tried many things but
didn't work. Can somebody help me in this?

Thanks,
AMC.
