RT-WinXP-Apache-Oracle10g-ActivePERL

I’m trying to get RT installed on an XP-SP2 box using Oracle10g. I
can’t seem to be able to get the manual install to go. I have used the
3rd party installers to get it working but none of them install for
Oracle, only mySQL. I started out trying to manually install the
application using the supplied documents from the wiki but am missing
something.
Does anyone have a step-by-step for installing RT on a box with Oracle
10g? Or any suggestions that might be beneficial?

If you have a working installation agains MySQL then it should be 'easy’
to switch to Oracle.
The only difference is the use of DBD::Oracle instead of DBD::MySQL, so
theoretically installing DBD::Oracle should do the trick. Ofcourse
you’ll need to adapt RT_SiteConfig.pm to reflect this change and you
would need to make sure that you can connect using DBD::Oracle to your
Oracle instance.
The problem you’ll face will be if there is a binary DBD::Oracle
available for you ActivePerl version.

Good luck,
