Is there any particular reason you want to use ODBC to talk to Oracle?
Have you verified that you can connect to Oracle via other means,
e.g., does sqlplus work?  You've installed the Oracle client libraries
on your Linux box, right?

I've never tried ODBC with Oracle so I can't help you there, but in my
experience ROracle mostly works for basic use, and Oratcl works very well.
