I have installed Oracle R12 on a LInux box. Well, if you call that box.. It is a PC with a single core celeron 3Ghz , 2 GB RAM, 250Gb SATA drive. I downloaded both the Oracle Version R5 from http://edelivery.oracle.com and then the R12 version from http://edelivery.oracle.com. I installed the x64 version. The speed is ok and so does the patching. Please do note that although it is an oracle version of linux (unbreakable) i strongly recommend that you read the metalink ID:416305.1
what is important after install is getting these patch in.. I spent some time with a bug of the java client not coming up as the openmotif library was not up to standard.
