Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5)…


I’ve been having a play with the beta 2 of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5).

Having seen the various Fedora Core versions released since RHEL4, I knew what to expect from RHEL5, but somehow I hoped for a bit more. If just feels like RHEL4 with a different theme.

I can see why Microsoft always add a bunch fancy new gizmos to every Windows release. They need something to differentiate the product, regardless of its usefulness, and people like me fall for it every time… 🙂

  1. Did you manage to install GRID agent (Linux x86_64_Grid_Control_agent_download_10_2_0_3) on RHEL 5.1

    thanks for your help

  2. Hi.

    Thanks for the offer, but I only put my own content on to my site.

    Typically I only write about stuff I’m doing and nobody has asked me to do a 10gR2 RAC install on RHEL5, so I’m not going to spend time trying for a couple of reasons:

    1) 10gR2 is a very old version of Oracle now.
    2) I prefer to install Oracle on the version it was written against. 10g was written against RHEL4, so it tends to install more smoothly in that OS. The deprecation of RAW devices in RHEL5 goes some way to justifying this logic to me.

    Each to their own.
