FAQ
In Oracle 10g, you should be able to run $ORACLE_HOME/install/changePerm.sh
, This relaxes security on the software binaries to pre-10g state.

I've never touched Oracle 10 software, but some enterpise software is
forcing me to use a 10g client. I need to be able to allow a user on
the linux db server host to use a 10 oracle client. It seems default
permissions prevent this. Is there a script somewhere that sets the
software so it is usable? Maybe it is a patch to something above
10.2.0.1 that get's this right (or wrong given the security issues)?
I can't find the right meatlink note. Thanks.

    I see this old changePerm.sh mentioned, but it was not installed with
    the client software. Where can I get it? Seems it doesn't work
    compeletly, either. Maybe a patch like Opatch has it?

    Yes this is true. The problem was in 10.2.0.1, and the script was
    part of the 10.2.0.2 patchset. Of course 10.2.0.2 is a big stinking
    turd otherwise, so go right to 10.2.0.4 if you can, or maybe someone
    has posted the contents of that script online for you to run.

    implications seem to be the fix came in 10.2.0.2, where changePerm.sh is
    included.  Does that sound right?

    thanks, yep, I just got a wiff..sigh. I'll patch to 4 and see if
    it smells better.

    This note describes some of the muck:
