Hi.

I have an application which was primarily created with Oracle (XE). I want to run it on the RaspberryPi, but obviously Oracle isnt going to fly.

Can anyone suggest a replacement. the program makes use of plsql stored procedures....

Regards,
Andrew

I dont know how it will work on an rPi, but postgreSQL i think is the best match. For really constrained systems, sqlite.

I would agree with postgres.

You are going to have to port all the stored procs though.

The following might help
