Oracle Linux 6.1 ISO images now available for download

Just a quick followup to the previous blog post: ISO images for Oracle Linux 6.1 are now available for download from E-Delivery as well.

Oracle Linux 6.1 is free to download, use and distribute under the terms of the GPL. So please give it a try and let us know what you think!


Thanks for the info. BTW, are there any (extensive) documentations?

I tried installing on a 64bit machine where I previously installed Oracle linux 5.5 and centos 5.5 without any problems. Now during the installation of oracle linux 6.1 the usb mouse works for 10 seconds and then the whole installer is kinda wierd (graphics card problem I think). When the installer is copying the packages to the disk, somewhere after the linux kernel and error shows up where you can only abort the installation. I checked the md5 value of the file I wrote the image 2 times on a different DVD and tried the installation on 2 different computers -> the same package error occured. Can someone verify the md5 value of the iso file OracleLinux-R6-U1-Server-x86_64-dvd.iso? Mine is: BFCE792CBF6587146F3429FEF326CF83 Any help is welcome. I don't know the name of the package by heart, If you really need it, I can give you the exact error message later.

Hyperion1980: What graphic card do you use? What is the error message you see when the installation aborts? I don't have the MD5 checksum, but here's the SHA1 hash of the ISO image: f5d8a8bccb4b90e1e9a83ff2fbf1010437827fcb OracleLinux-R6-U1-Server-x86_64-dvd.iso

The problem with the graphics card was easy to solve with the second option "try with basic graphics card driver" -> the problem with the mouse is also solved now. Second problem with packages: some packages are corrupt or something. I already informed oracle about this. When I choose the options "minimal installation" + "high availability" the problem was solved. When you choose either "Oracle server" or "desktop" the installer gives an error and you have to reinstall it. I hope this information is helpfull for others.

I checked with SHA1 and it is the same number: f5d8a8bccb4b90e1e9a83ff2fbf1010437827fcb

I just installed Oracle Linux 6.1. Now I wanted to install Oracle VM Manager and it says that Oracle Linux 6.1 is not supported :-(. The installation manual says Oracle Enterprise Linux 4 Update 5 or later is supported.
Do you know why there is no new version of VM Manager available? I use the latest downloadable version 2.2.0

Should I simply change Will this work?

Tow months ago I installed ole 6.0 + 11g R2 database on note. The speed of working
5 time more then on 9... database + win 2000 . But there was mistakes in calculating
time from raw data - near 5% from 9 000 000 different convert operations, + problems with RDP connections to windows servers.
1. May be it is good idea for oracle somehow organize work with many such cases to force the process of certification .
2. Is it possible to update my installation ole 6.0 + 11g R2 database on note to 6.1 without of reinstalling all products?

Thanks a lot for the download resource!

Why don't you let us simply download an iso-imige?

Any reason why ORACLE doesn't publish MD5 checksums with it's ISO images?

Posted by guest on April 10, 2012 at 03:39 PM PDT #

The MD5 and SHA1 checksums are actually published on the Software Delivery Cloud (aka "E-Delivery"). If you choose a certain media pack, you will find a button labeled "View Digest", which will print the checksums for the ISO images so you can verify the integrity.

Ah! Thanks for that Lenz.

We definitely should have access to MD5/SHA1 checksums for large downloads.
