Re: How to install Oracle 10g RAC on OEL Linux 5 using VmWare?
Date: Thu, 17 Sep 2009 08:59:43 -0500
Has anyone managed to do this in Microsoft VIrtual PC 2007? When I try it, I have a problem with the video that makes the screen impossible to read. I set it up in text mode, but then the mouse didnt work at all.
It looked like the problem was that OEL wanted to use 24 bit color, and Virtual PC wants to use 16, but I couldnt figure out how to set the command line for startup of virtual PC in 16 bit color. Any ideas?
