As Oracle Heterogeneous Services was not supported for 64bit Linux, I am trying to accomplish this using Oracle 11g Database Gateway for ODBC.

Can you please share some step by step document for same?

I do not have such an example, you however can search the oracle knowlegebase base for such information.

just a side note from my site: I had the dblink to a mssql server already, and mssql server had a linked server to the MySQL I was then interested ... not a very nice design, but worked (a view in mssql to return the data from the mysql table, and oracle querying the mssql server view ...)

The user that you are configuring to establish the link needs to exist on the mysql with the rights to the database of interest to you.

Below is good oracle notes to start. Setup/configuration needs to be done from both mysql,oracle database point of view along with ODBC 32/64 bit drivers. Then only u will reach a stage to create a database link.
