Just today I got the Oracle client software installed entirely via an ssh
connection. You have to run an x server but you don't have to do anything
via the GUI. I even got the perl DBD::Oracle to compile although that was
very difficult and I'm not entirely sure what I did to finally make it work.
I don't know if you can install the server entirely via the text interface
though. That was one thing I tried when I was trying to compile
DBD::Oracle. It ended w/o generating a "silent" install log file.
