kernel-2.6.9 and higher versions Support for Oracle


I am looking out for the Oracle Support in the Kernel version starting from 2.6.9 to higher versions.
I have tried Oracle on 2.6.9 and it does not work with it. But the Kernel version 2.6.4 supports Oracle.

It is strange that a server that depends on the kernel version. Try using mySQL.

Use a supported distro of Linux. Either Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. You could also give CentOS a shot.

Not necessarily. Red Hat may have a special patch in their kernel, most likely open source, that allows Oracle to run. Other distros may not have incorporated this yet. They may not see the need to.

Which distro are you trying to run this on?

I'm not sure which version of Oracle you are trying to install. I have Oracle 9i running on Suse 9.3 and I believe I am on 2.6.13.

You really need to specify what "Oracle" you're running. Is it 9i, 10gAS etc...? Is it the database or the applications?

We're running Oracle RAC and apps on our RH AS 3 (on separate servers). This is supported by Oracle.

Also you need to understand "unsupported" doesn't necessarilly mean it won't work - just that the vendors won't help you if it doesn't. I've seen many "unsupported" installations run just fine.
