Fedora Core 6 (FC6) was released while I was away at OpenWorld, so I thought I better update my draft installation documents:
I’ve written a couple of draft installation articles for DB10g R2 and AS10g R3 on Fedora Core 6 (Test 2).
I’ll revisit the articles once the final version of FC6 is released. I’m hoping the warning at the start of the articles prevents a repeat of the FC5 incident.
As expected, FC6 has diverged even further from RHEL4. There are a bunch of packages that either don’t exist or are deprecated. The software seems to work OK, but I’m not sure how many problems are waiting in the wings. It will be interesting to see how Oracle and RHEL5 get on together, especially where RAC is concerned.
