Robbert said...

Thanks Tim!

Since I'm completely new to Linux, this helps me a lot!

Tim, this document was unbelievably good. I'm new to Linux/Unix and this document has helped me get past that mind-block against non-windows Operating systems. Thanks so much!

Tim--I found this page that talks about including the Oracle RPMs during the install of Linux. May save time later on in regard to further configuring an Oracle software install.

This requires you to have an Unbreakable Linux support contract, so it is not available for all people wanting to perform the installation, which is why I don;t use it in these articles.

If you have one, then buy all means use it. :)

Sounds like you have a dodgy disk. If this is a virtual disk, drop and recreate it.

i have 3 operating system
such as fedora, windows 7 and windows 8.1.
i afraid for my vital information.
in oracle linux installation and install grub, what can i do that this linux distribution replace with fedora with no affect for my previous gruab boot loader.

Tim... said...


I wouldn't risk it. I only ever run a single OS on a box, then use Oracle VirtualBox to run virtual machines for every other OS I need.
