Oracle Database Certified on OL6/RHEL6 (at last)…


I can hardly believe it. It’s finally happened!!!

Check out the story here.

The certification matrix on MOS is not updated yet, and those on RHEL kernel will have to wait a few more days (90), but at last we have some firm commitment. 🙂

From now on, the Oracle Linux errata are available free from In the past only the updates (5.6, 5.7 etc.) were available. This makes OL even more useful than before.

Thank you!



Update: Remember, if you apply the errata to OL6.2, you will have the same scsi_id issue I saw with 5.8.
