Oracle certification on linux - it's a madhouse!

Jacques Kilchoer


I found some conflicting information on Metalink concerning Oracle =
certification on Linux. Metalink note 68857.1 is specific about kernel =
releases and libraries etc. and from reading the note it looks like =
Oracle 9.2 is certified on only 3 Linux releases. However going in the =
"Certify and Availability" section I see Oracle 9.2 being certified on 7 =
different unix releases. I asked in a Metalink forum about it, but my =
question for the group is:

For those of you running Linux in production - do you stick with an =
Oracle certified release? I'm not talking about the cowboys that install =
on a laptop for testing purposes and compile Linux from scratch with the =
right tweaks to avoid ORA-600 errors.

My guess would be that most Oracle installations on Linux are either =
RedHat or SuSe - is there a survey out there that shows which Linux =
versions are most popular for Oracle databases?

(P.S. Below is what I saw on Metalink)

Metalink Note:68857.1=20
Subject: Oracle on Linux Compatibilty MATRIX=20
Last Revision Date: 18-JAN-2004=20
shows that Oracle Server Version 9.2 is certified on these releases:=20
- Redhat Linux 2.1 Advanced Server=20
- SuSe Linux SLES7=20
- Miracle Linux Advanced Server 2.1=20

But, if I click the "Certify and Availability" button and then go =
through this sequence:=20
View Certifications by Product=20
Oracle Database/Server=20
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition=20
Linux x86=20
10G and 9.2, Certified combinations only=20

I see the following information:=20

Oracle 10.1 certified on Linux x86 32-bit for these releases:=20
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 3=20
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 3=20

Oracle 9.2 certified on Linux x86 32-bit for these releases:=20
- UnitedLinux 1.0=20
- SuSE SLES7=20
- RedFlag DC Server 4.0 (China-HongKong only)=20
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 3=20
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 2.1=20
