The RPM Oracle distributes doesn't publish the Oracle Instant Client libraries. Thus no other RPM can explicitly depend on it.

We explain here how to build your own RPM that publishes the libraries.

Get the official Oracle Instant Client RPM

Download it from the OTN web site :

Build your own RPM

  • Install the official Oracle RPM :

$ rpm -Uvh oracle-instantclient-basic-

  • Create a dedicated directory, and copy the make-oracle-rpm and oracle-instantclient-lcg.spec files :

$ mkdir oracle-instantclient/

$ ls oracle-instantclient/



  • Create the RPM by running :

$ cd oracle-instantclient/

$ ./make-oracle-rpm --version

  • The RPM is created in :

$ ls RPMS/
