Fedora 21 has arrived and it’s now delivered in three focussed flavours (Workstation, Server and Cloud). This of course resulted in the usual articles from me.
- Fedora 21 (F21) Installation
- Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) Installation On Fedora 21 (F21)
- Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1) Installation On Fedora 21 (F21)
As always, read the warnings before you start down this path.
From an Oracle installation perspective, it’s almost identical to Fedora 20. I chose to use the server flavour and install the “MATE Desktop” package group. I suspect others may prefer to start with the workstation release. Either way it should be fine.
As I suspected, switching my main desktop from Fedora to the MacBook means I care significantly less about this release than before, but I still have some upgrades I’ll need to plug through.
