Oracle Linux 6.3 RPMs Now Available

The installation media ISO for Oracle Linux 6.3 is still "in the oven" but the RPMs are already available.  You can grab them on ULN, if you have an Oracle Linux support subscription, or anyone can get them from public-yum.oracle.com.  Oracle Linux 6.3 includes a quarterly update of Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2 (kernel-uek-2.6.39-200.9.0.el6uek).  To install that kernel, make sure you have the ol6_UEK_latest channel or repo enabled.  Enjoy.
Comments:

kernel-uek-2.6.39-200.9.0.el6uek has a KVM bug.

Only one guest can be started. After one guest is started all other guests fail to start with the following error:

# virsh start testbox.example.com
error: Failed to start domain testbox.example.com
error: internal error process exited while connecting to monitor: char device redirected to /dev/pts/2
kvm_create_vcpu: Cannot allocate memory
Failed to create vCPU. Check the -smp parameter.

The exact same configuration works fine when booted to kernel-uek-2.6.39-100.10.1.el6uek.x86_64 or kernel-2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64.

Thank you for reporting the KVM bug - we're looking into it.
