Oracle Linux

logo

Oracle Linux is an open-source operating system available under the GNU General Public License (GPLv2). Suitable for general purpose or Oracle workloads, it benefits from rigorous testing of more than 128,000 hours per day with real- world workloads and includes unique innovations such as Ksplice for zero- downtime kernel patching, DTrace for real-time diagnostics, the powerful Btrfs file system, and more.

Changelog

Oracle maintains a CHANGELOG that documents by release date the errata applied and any CVE(s) that are mitigated in each update to the official images.

How to use these images

The Oracle Linux images are intended for use in the FROM field of a downstream Dockerfile. For example, to use the latest optimized Oracle Linux 8 i mage, specify FROM oraclelinux:8.

Removal of latest tag

The latest tag was removed from the Oracle Linux official images in June 2020 to avoid breaking any downstream images caused by backwards-incompatible changes introduced by the release of a new version. Downstream images must specify the version, i.e. oraclelinux:7 or oraclelinux:8.

Differences between oraclelinux:8 and oraclelinux:8-slim

Oracle recommends using oraclelinux:8 for most images that extend Oracle Linux 8.

The oraclelinux:8-slim variant is intended primarily to provide "just enough user space" for statically compiled binaries or microservices. Use of the 8-slim variant is discouraged for general purposes, due to the inclusion of microdnf in place of dnf and signficantly reduced locale data.

Differences between oraclelinux:7 and oraclelinux:7-slim

For images that want an Oracle Linux 7 user space, Oracle recommends using oraclelinux:7-slim as the base layer as it contains just enough packages for yum to be able to install more packages.

The oraclelinux:7 images is based on the package set of what would be installed on a bare-metal server when performing a Minimal install of Oracle Linux.
