Recently we had a number of releases that make Oracle Linux an even better development platform.
Now I want to share how to upgrade an existing Oracle Linux 7 installation to the latest Oracle Linux 7 Update 5 Developer Preview with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) Release 5 Developer Preview (4.14.23-1.el7uek.x86_64).
Modify the yum channel setting and enable the Oracle Linux 7 Update 5 Developer Preview and UEK Release 5 Developer Preview channels. Then you perform the upgrade.
# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-ol7.repo [ol7_u5_developer] name=Oracle Linux $releasever Update 5 installation media copy ($basearch) baseurl=http://yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/5/developer/$basearch/ gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 [ol7_u5_developer_optional] name=Oracle Linux $releasever Update 5 optional packages ($basearch) baseurl=http://yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/optional/developer/$basearch/ gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 [ol7_developer_UEKR5] name=Oracle Linux $releasever UEK5 Development Packages ($basearch) baseurl=http://yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/developer_UEKR5/$basearch/ gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle gpgcheck=1 enabled=1
# yum update
After the upgrade is completed, reboot the system to have the updated OS environment running.
# cat /etc/oracle-release Oracle Linux Server release 7.5 # uname -a Linux honsu-ol7-vm1 4.14.23-1.el7uek.x86_64 #2 SMP Thu Mar 1 12:35:10 PST 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The above instructions apply to any Oracle Linux 7 instances on-premises or on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
