John, click on the "Patches & Updates" tab, click on "Quick Links to the latest Patchsets...",
click on "Oracle Databases", scan the display of OS platforms for "Linux x86-64" and
click on "". Or you can go directly to the upgrade patch by clicking on "Simple search"
and specifying patch # 6810189 for which is the latest for oracle10g.

Be aware that there are major changes with this upgrade so you should look
at new feature docs before you do your upgrade. Received on Fri Jul 18 2008 - 11:11:21 CDT
