Oracle Linux installation media configuration


Hi, Could someone provide installation media and operating system configuration for Oracle Linux 8? I’m searching for a while now how to setup repos for OL8 but i don’t have any clue yet how to achive that.

Best regards,

I can’t speak for OL8, but for CentOS I did the following:

  1. Install a VM using the ISO
  2. Check all the default enabled repo’s
  3. Add those repo’s to Foreman
  4. Publish & you’re good to go.

I noticed you can probably remove the ‘Extras’ Repo, as it only contains packaged with extra repo definitions and their GPG keys (which should be managed by Foreman)

I think we could preseed OEL repositories too.

Feel free to file a PR:

We have a new Oracle Linux 8 Guide. Hope this helps.
