Followed same document. Just instead of powertools, enabled ol8_codeready_builder repo using command “dnf config-manager --set-enabled ol8_codeready_builder”. Able to install foreman.

Hi @priya

I would try the following: create an empty “powertools” repo (with that exact name and id) that points to a local empty Yum repo (see createrepo) or any other upstream repo and then enable all repos on OL that most likely “match” the “RHEL powertools” repo. Maybe you can trick “foreman-installer” into seeing this repo, but receiving the packages from another repo instead.

As far as I can tell, there are no automated installation tests on Oracle Linux 8.

The installer doesn’t care for the powertools repo.

If it’s called ol8_codeready_builder on Oracle, enabling it should be sufficient.

Just note that the 9th version is not supported in any RHEL* distro.

No, 9 is not supported.
