Updated to incorporate new download options and changes in Software Delivery Cloud
This post summarizes options to download Oracle Linux installation media
There are several types of downloads:
If all you need is an ISO image to perform an installation of a recent Oracle Linux release, your best bet is to download directly from Oracle Linux yum server. From here you can directly download full ISO images and boot ISO images for the last few updates of Oracle Linux 8, 7 and 6 for both x86_64 and Arm (aarch64). No registration or sign in required. Start here.
Oracle Sofware Delivery Cloud is the official source to download all Oracle software, including Oracle Linux. Unless you are looking for older releases of Oracle Linux or complementary downloads other than the regular installation ISO, it’s probably quicker and easier download from Oracle Linux yum server. That said, to download from Oracle Sofware Delivery Cloud, start here and sign in.
From the Platform/Languages drop-down list, select your system’s platform, then Continue.
On the next page, review and accept the terms of licenses, then click Continue.
Next, you have several options to download the files you are interested in.
If you only need one or two of the files and don’t anticipate any download hiccups that require stopping and resuming a download, simply click on the filename, e.g. V995537-01.iso
Use a download manager if you want to download multiple files at the same time or pause and resume file download. A Download manager can come in handy when you are having trouble completing a download, or want to queue up several files for unattended downloading. Remember to de-select any files you are not interested in.
If want to download directly to a system with access to a command line, only, use the WGET option to download a shell script.
In addition locations listed above Oracle Linux ISOs can be download from several unoffical mirror sites. Note that these site are not endorsed by Oracle, but that you can verify the downloaded files using the procedure outlined below.
