RE: Which Linux??

Arul,

Since Ubuntu is a Debian-based distribution, you'll need to "fix" some stuff 
before running the installer, and you'll need to run with the -ignoreSysPreReqs 
option.  If you do a Google search for "oracle on ubuntu 7.10", you get lots of 
hits.

Subject: Re: Which Linux??

No question, CentOS is a good choice.

But, it does not work on the Dell Vostro 200 desktops. CentOS 4/5 does not have 
the drivers (I believe) for the new SATA in Vostro and I couldn't get to 
install... at the moment it seems to me ubuntu is the only choice.

Are there any issues in installing Oracle10g/11g on ubuntu?

thanks,
Arul

Hi,

Many thanks for the responses.  It seems that the out right winner was Centos!  
So . . .  just installed it!


Thank you to all.

I use Fedora, pretty good to run Oracle on.

People,

I am thinking of running at 10/11g on a FREE Linux.    I know the amount of 
patches you need to stabilise Oracle and get it running can be an issue, SO  . 
. .Of the many flavours out there, which do you consider the best and most 
stable?  I've used Solaris and HP-UX for many years, so know my way around UNIX 
well.

Your thoughts please. . .
