please could you tell me how System.Data.OracleClient works on Linux 
Here my environment : 

OS : SuSE 9.0 with Mono 1.04 and Oracle Client 

For testing I used the testprogram down on /www.go-mono.com/oracle.html 
with modification for connecting my oracle database 
Compilation was succesfull 

When I run -mono test.exe- I' ve got this message 

Unhandled Exception: System.DllNotFoundException: oci 
in <0x00053> (wrapper managed-to-native) OciNativeCalls:OCIEnvCreate
in <0x00020> System.Data.OracleClient.Oci.OciCalls:OCIEnvCreate
in <0x0005d> System.Data.OracleClient.Oci.OciEnvironmentHandle:.ctor
in <0x0003c> System.Data.OracleClient.Oci.OciGlue:CreateConnection
in <0x0002b> System.Data.OracleClient.OracleConnection:Open () 
in <0x0004f> (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check)
System.Data.OracleClient.OracleConnection:Open () 
in <0x0006a> Test:Main (string[]) 

Then I tried it with 

OS : SuSE 9.1 with Mono 1.04 and Oracle Client from Version 10g 

... same problems will appear :-( 

what's wrong ? ... does a file like oci.dll on linux exist ? 
please help me
