ISO Installation Images Coming Soon March 9, 2012,
Volume 169, Issue 1
Oracle Linux 5 Update 8 is now in general availability. This distribution includes the latest release of the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 1 (version 2.6.32-300.10.1, based on mainline Linux 2.6.32), which includes a number of important bug fixes and driver updates. RPM packages for direct installation/upgrade are available for Oracle Linux Support Customers from the Unbreakable Linux Network, and individual packages of the initial release are also available for download from the public yum repository, Lenz Grimmer posts. ISO installation images of the distribution will be made available for download from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud (aka E-Delivery) shortly or through external mirror sites. If you require ISO images before they are available from there, Grimmer advises, please request these via a Metalink service request or log into My Oracle Support and search for patch 13801642.
