can you ping

Instructions for installing a GUI are here
Best to start with Oracle 8.1 as there are to many changes to enumerate.

Note: If you install Oracle server version there will never be a GUI, as there will rarely be a graphical device connected to a server version.

If you truly do have a graphical device connected to your server, then you'll install xserver-xorg then refer to your Distro's docs for how to get X11 working. Or easier, just install some Desktop + xserver-org will likely be installed + configured to work.

Note: Normally ifconfig lives in the net-tools package (on most Distros). If net-tools is missing then many other parts of the networking stack code may be missing also.

Start with Oracle 8.1 first, so you're not trying to work around some bug. If your networking is active, just install the net-tools package.

am geting User generated image this linux is certified for software i what to install
okay well that proves there is no internet.

how did you setup the VM settings, NAT, Bridged, Host only ?

check if the VM gets an IP Address ?

check with

ip addr show

Open in new window

netstat -rn

According to your image you are bridging. Did you configure the IP 192.168.8...

What is the ip on your lan,check on .
netstat -rn

Question default route?

how do i edit
In your current state, you can bring up the info
sudo ifconfig enp0s3 up

To have connection brought up at boot.

Try, nano
Note, you need to either elevate your shell, sudo -i

If it is not installed use vi,
Use arrow keys to navigate to ONBOOT=no
While positioning the cursor on n, cw (change word) type yes
Hit escape key,
Hit  ::wq
This will write out/save the changes and quit vi.

This should fo it.
Andrew brings up a good point. The entire net-tools framework is currently being deprecated.

This includes retiring ifconfig + also converting the entire network setup to the NetPlan project.

If you get output using the ip command then ifconfig shows to be missing, this is a very good indication that ifconfig has been completely retired from your Distro version.

Dig into your Distro docs about how your specific Distro is handling the entire net-tools + NetPlan change over.
A slight sight, oracle as a restricted user often does not gave /sbin which is where ifconfig, in the path.
This is why it could not be located.

The likely issue, during setup when the ip was configured as static versus DHCP, the option to activate at boot was not selected; thus, onboot=no in the config.

sudo ifconfig -a
A default install of Oracle Linux, root or non-priv user, there is no ifconfig.

It's also a bit odd, that the defined networking is set to static ?

Have you set a STATIC configuration ? and not DHCP ?

it maybe quicker to re-deploy (re-instll) and for quickness, select DHCP....

where did you get the IP Address from ? and use a Default Networking of NAT in virtualbox.
