Simplify Your Install of Oracle Database 12c on Oracle Linux

The Oracle Linux team is pleased to announce the availability of the latest oracle-rdbms preinstall package to support your Oracle 12c installations.  For those of you who are not familiar with our preinstall solution, it provides a streamlined process for ensuring an Oracle Linux system meets the pre-requisites required for your Oracle Database installation.  With the introduction of Oracle 12c, we have updated the package to provide a smooth installation path for administrators.  

 For more information on how to get started, here are a few easy resources:

    I tried to follow this on Oracle Linux 7 but the RPM is not available (at least the system tells me that). Are there any plans to provide this on Oracle Linux 7 and when might that be?

    This RPM will be published once the RDBMS team certify a 12c release on Oracle Linux 7.
