Be sure to take the proof of concept right through
to using Oracle, because you might have a problem.
IIRC, the GLORP port to Squeak only supports Postgres.
But this news is a year or so old. Check with the
owner of the GLORP port, to be sure.

What steps did you follow, and what Squeak version?
How did the install of Postgres fail? (I hope it's
not a bad URL. I tried to fix all the references, after
my ISP forced all their member pages to change.)

Also, the last time I looked, the GLORP port mentioned
some Postgres patches. I've not looked at them, but
hopefully someday, I'll update the release.
