OS Installation

Install Oracle Linux (OL) 5.7 or 6.1 in the same way you would for a regular Oracle Database installation. You can see examples of these types of installations below. Remember to check the relevant database installation article (listed below) for the specific package group selection.

During this installation I used a virtual machine with 6G RAM and 30G disk space. The swap size was set at 8G and the firewall and SELinux were disabled.
