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
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.

Subject: Oracle Database 11.2 on RHEL 5.5 certification
could anyone clarify the following sentence:
Quick Installation Guide
11g Release 2 (11.2) for Linux x86-64
4.1 Operating System Requirements
The following or later versions of the operating system are required for
Database 11g Release 2 (11.2):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 5 (only if using Oracle Unbreakable
Does this mean that 11.2 is NOT supported and/or certified on RHEL 5.5
with the original default RedHat kernel?
