IMO, the problem is that Mono cannot see the Oracle oci library.
The Oracle ADO db provider is not fully managed, and needs the
Oracle oci library (which in Linux is a .so, of course).

Have you installed an "Oracle client" package on Linux?
If you have, are you sure the loader (I mean ld) can see the
library (maybe a LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting is needed)?
Or maybe you should remap the dll in a config file...
