FAQ
Hi all,
could anyone clarify the following sentence:

Oracle® Database
Quick Installation Guide
11g Release 2 (11.2) for Linux x86-64
E16768-06
June 2011

4.1 Operating System Requirements
The following or later versions of the operating system are required for
Oracle
Database 11g Release 2 (11.2):

[...]

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 5 (only if using Oracle Unbreakable
Enterprise
Kernel)

Does this mean that 11.2 is NOT supported and/or certified on RHEL 5.5
with the original default RedHat kernel?

Best regards
Dimitre

    Funny.
    The documentation specifies Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for RHEL 5 Update 5
    but not for RHEL 5 Update 2 !!
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e16768/toc.htm#CIHFICFD
    and
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e16763/pre_install.htm#CHDFFBIF

    There's a note which says :
    Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Linux 5 Update 5 (2.6.32), available for x86-64 systems, contains several additional features and performance enhancements not available either with Oracle Linux or with other supported Linux distributions. This kernel can be installed on either Oracle Linux or Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions. Before installing the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, you must have Oracle Linux 5 Update 5 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 5 installed on an x86-64 server.
    So if you "modify" the RHEL distribution with Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, whom do you call for OS support ? Redhat or Oracle ?

    I suggest that you login to support.oracle.com and check the Certification pages.

    So if you "modify" the RHEL distribution with Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, whom do you call for OS support ? Redhat or Oracle ?

    I suggest that you login to support.oracle.com and check the Certification pages.
    It states just:

    Oracle Database 11.2.0.2.0 with Linux x86-64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

    For further details see Certification Information for Oracle Database on
    Linux x86-64 (Doc ID 1304727.1).

    Quotes from the note:

    Certification Details for Specific Releases

    11.2

    OS versions and minimum levels:
    [...]

    Red Hat Enterprise 5 Update 2 and higher

    [...]

    See Oracle Database Installation Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2) for Linux
    for the Minimum Operating System Requirements.
    [...]
    11.2.0.2 requires Oracle Linux 5 update 2 or higher
    Unbreakable Enterprise Linux kernel (UEK) for x86-64 is supported with
    11.2.0.2 and requires Oracle Linux Update 5 or higher.

    So we have:

    Doc ID 1304727.1 - 11.2.0.2 requires Oracle Linux 5 update 2 or higher.
    Installation Guide: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 5 (only if
    using Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise
    Kernel)

    ...

    Thanks

    I got some help on the interpretation on the OTN forums:

    If you are using Oracle Unbreakable Kernel, you will need to be at
    RHEL 5 update 5. If not the minimum requirement is RHEL 5 update 2.

    I suppose my misunderstanding was due to the fact that I'm not a native
    English speaker ...

    Thanks
