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 http://public-yum.oracle.com. In the past only the updates (5.6, 5.7 etc.) were available. This makes OL even more useful than before.

Thank you!

Cheers

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