Thanks for the detailed answers. I'm currently downloading the set of
five CDs. I already got the first ISO (my connection is slow), burnt it
and installed it on a spare machine. The installer looks indeed quite
the same as RHEL/CentOS (and makes you even wonder if they changed
something besides the name :oD). Since I have to wait for the other ISOs
to download, I went for a minimal install, e. g. everything unchecked,
even [Base]. Unfortunately, contrary to CentOS, this way of doing things
doesn't get me Yum, and a manual install of Yum apparently requires some
packages that are not on the first CD. So I'll simply wait for the other
ISOs to download and go for something less minimal.
I'm especially curious to know about the default Yum repos config :
where does Oracle Linux have its repos and its updates ? Do I have to
subscribe to something to get them or are they free ? Well, I guess I'll
have to wait for my download to finish to get the answer.
