Hi Daniel,

I did EBS cross-platform migration migration several times including to Linux platform.
Reading your email i have got impression that you are talking DB end only (slit configuration).
NOTE: It is possible to migrate Apps end to Linux as well, but 11i doesn't work on 64-bit Linux

As for EBS DB migration you can use any Generic Oracle DB method. Only condition is the source and destination should be identical (or close to identical) at the end.

I don't see how you can migrate an Oracle DB from Solaris 10 (64 bit) to Suse Linux 10 (64 bit) using transportable database feature: select * from V$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM where upper(PLATFORM_NAME) like '%64-BIT%' order by 3, 2;

It might be challenging to migrate EBS DB using transportable tablespaces as there are ~200k data dictionary objects to transfer beside of data/index segments.
IMHO you do have 2 options in that case: - FULL Exp/Imp
- Combined TRSF TBS & METADATA Exp/Imp

I did the first recently (Tru64->AIX) for 1TB database using Data Pump. I know that Oracle were running earler adopters program for second option (ref

Just my 0.02$,
