I had a similar issue at a previous company, I found most of the scripts ran with expected results on our test server, and the ones where they didn't run I re-wrote the script.

The thing is that there are some very subtle differences that mean you really have to check your scripts one by one rather than just trying a quick find/replace.

More than likely, a total rewrite of the script.
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that you probably need a Linux Oracle client installed, at a minimum.
Could be may also work.
and says in part

"Welcome to the Oracle SQL Developer documentation library. Oracle SQL Developer is a free graphical tool that enhances productivity and simplifies database development tasks. With SQL Developer, you can browse database objects, run SQL statements and SQL scripts, edit and debug PL/SQL statements, manipulate and export data, and view and create reports. You can connect to Oracle databases, and you can connect to selected third-party (non-Oracle) databases, view metadata and data, and migrate these databases to Oracle."

I managed to migrate an Oracle 8i on Windows NT4 to Solaris migration without data loss or down time, but I had months to prepare.
I think I did it all with an Oracle Client software and maybe a developer tool here or there.

Oracle is a beast, but it's a beast with choices.
