DBAL (which supports Oracle) should still work in 6.2/7. There are not 
many people who actually use anything else but MySQL (or the drop-in 
replacement MariaDB), so there can easily be bugs which haven't been 
reported yet.

What is the actual error that is produced? If it's only the "Oops, an 
error occurred" type of error message you could activate more verbose 
error messages by setting the display errors options in the Install Tool.
These issues for 4.5 will most likely not be fixed anymore because 4.5 
has only a few months of support left.
