oracle9i on which linux distribution in production? feedback needed plz

P: n/a
Hi,

I was wondering if there are some users out there, that use:
"non commercial enterprise" linux distributions (like suse linux enterprise
server8, or redhat enterprise server 3)
with oracle database 9i in production environments?

Are you using one of those in production:
1) gentoo,
2) debian
3) suse professional
4) slackware or
5) red hat
5) xyz?

How big is your oracle db, what is your experience with those distributions?

Which linux version would you recommend for a production environment?

In advance, many thanks for your feedback!

I think most people would argue that if you are using Oracle in
production then you would want to be on a certified platform - so would
hav to go with the enterprise distributions. Failure to do so would
mean you might as well not bother to pay Oracle support as you may
struggle to log any calls.

If you are happy to go against conventional wisdom, then there are
clones of the enterprise linux distributions;

"White Box Enterprise Linux" - http://www.whiteboxlinux.org/
Tao Linux -- http://taolinux.org
CentOS -- http://www.caosity.org

Personally, I have used mainstream Suse & Redhat as there is a wealth of
newsgroup postings and howtos for installing onto these distros and not
much to choose between them in terms of ease of install.
