John Garmany on White Box Linux

May 25, 2004
Mark Rittman
John Garmany has written a short article on White Box Linux and the various other 'clones' of Red Hat Advanced Server 3.0, that allow you to run Oracle on Linux without paying for a commercial Red Hat Linux. According to John, "There are now an number of clones of Red Hat Advanced Server available on the internet for free. One is the White Box Enterprise Linux. White Box Enterprise Linux was derived from the open source Red Hat code for Advanced Server version 3 and can use Red Hat's update rpms."

John also comments,

"If you are running your Oracle Application Server on Linux, you are probably using Red Hat's Advanced Server 2.1 or 3 or United Linux 1.0. Both version come with a hefty price tag. And most Application Server administrator's will tell you that the primary reason that an installation fails is that the OS is not properly configured. Now you may have some options available."
