Thought I'd post a very appreciative thank you to Nick at Ramnode.

Ramnode is the only VPS/Cloud web host so far that has acted on my request for Oracle Linux 6.3 based ISO templates to be added (Nick added them within 24hrs ! ) so I can take advantage of more updated packages and improvements that Oracle's UEK 2.6.3.9 kernel has (based on 3.0.16 mainline kernel) .

Details

Just setup my KVM VPS with OL 6.3 will setup the rest after i get some sleep :)

Thank you Nick :)

    Awesome, RamNode are great, you can't go wrong with them. But if that's the only provider that can add a KVM ISO in for you within 24 hours I suggest you take a look at what providers you're with.. ;p

    Well Oracle provides other free software too. MySQL and Java for instance. When was the last time you worried about MySQL not being free to download? MySQL is used as the DBMS by most websites on the net.

    Also you don't have to sign up to download oracle linux. Just refer to the mirror list:

    I think it may work :P

    Ontopic, this Oracle Linux is a CentOS based distro right?

  • @yomero said: Ontopic, this Oracle Linux is a CentOS based distro right?

    It's a Red Hat Enterprise Linux based distribution to be more correct. CentOS is based off Red Hat too.

    " When was the last time you worried about MySQL not being free to download? "

    when Oracle killed the free version of Solaris (Open Solaris) or when it announced it would stop developing OpenOffice maybe?

  • LOL you off topic folks are funny :)

    Yup Oracle Linux is free and based off of RHEL and as such works exactly same as RHEL and CentOS just with more updated kernel, packages and tweaks here and there.

    Thanks Nick

  • Also, near MySQL/Java we can add virtualbox...
    I agree Oracle does have a weird and confusing licensing model at times, but they do have some free outstanding products, or at least partly free.
    apt-get install virtualbox-ose ! No need for anything more.

  • indeed, alot of my local testing is done via virtualbox instances :)
