migration toolkit for linux

On an older laptop (Fedora 7), I once installed the migration toolkit for linux.

Since I never figured out what was the correct syntax for the connect-string to connect to an Oracle database, I finally decided that it was easier to use a Windows-machine and the Windows-version of the migration toolkit to create a create.sql and insert.sql, copy those scripts to the linux-box and then run them from the console. This is a roundabout way but it works.

My first question is if anybody can give me an example on how to build a correct connectstring (I have a TNSNAMES.ora that I can use) so that I can use run_migration on that old laptop.

I installed the latest mysql-gui-tools on my new latop (Fedora 11) but to my surprise the migration-toolkit is no longer supported.

Question 2: What are the plans for migration-toolkit for Linux? Will there be a future release?

In the meantime I have copied the mysql-gui directory to my new laptop.
After adjusting the JRE_LIB_BASE to /usr/java/default/jre/lib/i386/, run_migration started but stopped immediately because libexpat.so.0 was missing. This was solved by creating a symbolic link (ln -s /lib/libexpat.so.1.5.2 /lib/libexpat.so.0) but now run_migration stops with "./grtsh: error while loading shared libraries: libtermcap.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

As far as I know, libtermcap is no longer supported by Fedora.
Question 3: How can I get run_migration running?
