    Angry Unanswered: Oracle 9i not certified on Redhat 9?

    I have switched from Windows XP Home Edition to Redhat 9 so that I could get Linux to work, and now I've found a site that says Oracle 9i isn't certified to work on Redhat 9! Is this true? If so, is Oracle 10g certified to work on Redhat 9?

    Here's the site I found:

    AFAIK they are not certified, but they work because the kernel version fits the requierements

    for learning purposes it is o.k.
    for 10G the /etc/version file must be edited to fit the requierements

    but for a production system I would go for Red Hat Adv. Server 2.1 or 3.

    Is 10g very much different from 9i? I'm taking a college course and I don't want any confusion between my text book and the program.

    10g offers more features, i.e. regex, ... ggf. read Mike Ault's book on 10G from Rampant Tech ...

    p.s. the 10G installer checks if all the requirements will be satisfied first before installing what I found great and it was my first installation witout any trouble on missing parameters
