video is a quick run through a manual installation of Oracle Linux 8. VIDEO
I put out a number of articles about Oracle Linux 8 when the beta was first released. I’ve now updated them where appropriate.
I’ve also gone through my Vagrant builds for
18c on OL8 and 19c on OL8. They work fine, although there isn’t a Vagrant box for OL8 yet, so I had to make my own using the method similar to this.
Remember, OL8 has only just come out, so the database is not certified on it yet. I’ve put at note a the top of the database installation guides saying as much.
The star of today’s video is
Mahir M. Quluzade. He was grinning most of the way through filming this. 🙂
Fresh on the back of yesterday’s
Fedora 30 post, I noticed a post from Avi Miller about the release of Oracle Linux 8 Beta. I had a day off work, so once I had finished the Fedora 30 builds, I started on the Oracle Linux 8 builds.
It should be obvious, but this is a beta release of the OS, so everything below is just me playing. It will all have to be done again, and done “properly” once the final release appears. Even then, it will be a while before anything is certified against the new OS, so don’t take this seriously.
I’ve pushed some stuff up to GitHub. It uses a Vagrant box I created myself, in the same way I wrote about
I think it’s time I did something “real”, rather than playing around with stuff that doesn’t relate to something I would do at work. 🙂
