Hi there,

We need to install Oracle Unbreakable Linux, but we don't know where we can get it.

Questions:

Where can we download the latest version?
Where can we get instructions on how to properly install it?
Is it free?
What are the system requirements?

Thank you,
- Christian

it's free, but you get no support
after you agree to the terms and conditions, you may receive a notice that your download access is delayed while your account is reviewed for compliance with export laws; just be mindful of that in case this is something you are trying to get immediately

It is free but you have to pay for the support. Were you being told what is the reason you need OEL?

You should take a look at the following FAQ -

Hi everyone,

Thanks very much for all your answers.

With regards to the files at edelivery.oracle.com, I found these files.  Which files should I download to get Oracle Unbreakable Linux?

As well, how do I know after I install Oracle that I have the Unbreakable version??

Thanks,
- Christian

you want the one in the middle
the first 2 contain the source code
wouldn't hurt to download the boot iso also but the 3rd one is the one you need for the installation
