Hi,

I need some guidance as to which of the files below do I need to burn to a DVD
so that I can make an install on a bare machine ?

File 4 seems the obvious choice but is too small to include the software.
My guess is 1 & 4 but I am not sure if 2 & 3 are needed.
If there is a demo video that would help me please providea link.
I tried google and youtube but no one is installing on bare machine, only VM.



1)V46135-01.isoOracle Linux Release 7 for x86_64 (64 Bit) 3.9 GB

2)V46136-01.isoOracle Linux Release 7 source DVD 1 3.3 GB

3)V46137-01.isoOracle Linux Release 7 source DVD 2 2.0 GB

4)V46138-01.isoOracle Linux Release 7 Boot iso image for x86_64 (64 bit) 343.0 MB

Thanks for your kind and gentle response.

This is a complete non sense.
What are files 1, 2, 3 and 4? How they are related to Oracle? Software or database?
What install are you talking about?

You want #1.
#2-3 are the source code
#4 is for simply booting from the dvd when you already have an installaton. Used for ultimate disaster recovery when the installed system won't boot.

Eh ben Monsieur Cadot. Soyez un peu gentil.

I am preparing to install Oracle Linux on a bare machine. Once successful I will install Oracle 11.2 .

Well, good luck! I have given up on Linux 7. Seriously. It is the same kernel as Linux 6 (or so my SA tells me) but, I think, immeasurably harder to work with. Stay with Linux 6. Trust me.
Also, of course, unless you have a reason for using Oracle 11, you really should be using 12.
