Installation of Oracle with unixODBC

at least since Oracle 10.2.0 the Oracle Linux distribution contains an ODBC driver which works with unixODBC. After installation of the Oracle Enterprise Edition, the driver can be found at


Simply using this library in odbcinst.ini (Driver = ) made ODBC work on my Suse Linux Enterprise 9 installation. I can access my database with unixODBC's isql odbc worksheet and query the database.

Part of my own software does not work and causes segmentation faults when calling SQLExecute. Thus my question is:

Is there any documentation available from Oracle which explains installation of ODBC under Linux? (I could not find any)
