Oracle Linux Distros


I am trying to figure out what I need to download Oracle Linux. This is what I see on Oracle's e-delivery:

Download Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 for x86_64 (64 Bit) V37084-01 3.5G
Download Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 Boot iso image for x86_64 (64 bit) V37088-01 197M
Download Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 UEK Boot ISO image for x86_64 (64 bit) V37090-01 196M
Download Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 source DVD 1 V37086-01 3.1G
Download Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 source DVD 2 V37087-01 1.9G


what is the difference between these? Do I need just the first one?

thanks.

seeing as Oracles linux is a rebuild of RHEL and is explicitly set up and optimized to run Oracles 12 g DataBase
you might be better off installing the FREE rebuild of the current RHEL 6.4
CentOS 6.4
it comes with MySQL installed and not the "not really free" Oracle 12 DB

now if you MUST 100% must use Oracles rebuild , then install the current 6.4 ( the dvd 1 is all 99.999% of people need )

"Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 4 for x86_64 (64 Bit) V37084-01 3.5G "

then BUY ( yes for $$$$$$$ ) the support contract

Each of those choices are for different things. The first one ought to be most of what you'd need.

They also offer pre-made virtual machines with some other software added in.
