Where can I get a VirtualBox image with Oracle Linux 7 and OpenStack for OEL release 2 installed?
There currently isn't one...

Latest version of RHEL iso images needed.

I would like to get the  iso's  for the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)that is approved/compliant with the latest version of Oracle. How can I find that on the Oracle Support Site? I have my Oracle Support login - and it works just fine. Thanks, Fred Di Censofred.dicenso#aksteel.com

IAAS and Debian 7

Hello, We have a customer using debian 7 onprem, that debian 7 has a kernel version 3.2, which should have the PVHVM drivers loaded, so it should run fine.However how would the support work? Can they open an SR in MOS if it doesn’t boot after a while? What’s our scope on custom built images?Regards,

JavaFX 8 error initializing ES2Pipeline on Debian Wheezy

I am working on a JavaFX 8 project which relies heavy on transitions and other effects. My target platform is a barebone with an Intel Atom CPU running Debian Wheezy.

Try a Java 8 update release => jdk8 *update* binary releases One of the feature items for the Java 8 update is "Intel HD support for Linux". If it doesn't work or isn't implemented yet, you can try asking for information on current status from the openjfx-dev mailing list. There is almost certainly some undocumented switch to force the system to use the OpenGL pipeline rather that software pipeline, but I'm not aware of what that is. --------- Debian Wheezy is not a supported configuration, though it might work.  Currently for JavaFX, the supported configuration page lists: Intel  Mobile GPUs: GMA 4500MHD and GMA HDDesktop GPUs: GMA 4500 and GMA HD On Linux platforms, graphic hardware acceleration is only supported for Nvidia cards (proprietary drivers only). Linux You must install GLIB 2.28 in order to run JavaFX Media.  You must install the following in order to support AAC audio, MP3 audio, H.264 video, and HTTP Live Streaming:libavcodec53 and libavformat53 on Ubuntu Linux 12.04 or equivalent. Linux  PlatformCPU ArchitectureVersionIntroduced InNotesOracle Linuxx86 (32-bit)5.5+1.8.0No JavaFX SupportOracle Linuxx64 (64-bit)5.5+1.8.0No JavaFX SupportOracle Linuxx86 (32-bit)6.x1.8.0 Oracle Linuxx64 (64-bit)6.x1.8.0Only 64-bit JRE is supportedSuse Linux Enterprise Serverx86 (32-bit)10 SP2+1.8.0 Suse Linux Enterprise Serverx64 (64-bit)10 SP2+1.8.0 Suse Linux Enterprise Serverx86 (32-bit)11.x1.8.0 Suse Linux Enterprise Serverx64 (64-bit)11.x1.8.0 Red Hat Enterprise Linuxx86 (32-bit)5.5+1.8.0No JavaFX SupportRed Hat Enterprise Linuxx64 (64-bit)5.5+1.8.0No JavaFX SupportRed Hat Enterprise Linuxx86 (32-bit)6.x1.8.0 Red Hat Enterprise Linuxx64 (64-bit)6.x1.8.0Only 64-bit JRE is supportedUbuntu Linuxx86 (32-bit)12.04 - LTS1.8.0 Ubuntu Linuxx64 (64-bit)12.04 - LTS1.8.0 Ubuntu Linuxx86 (32-bit)13.x1.8.0 Ubuntu Linuxx64 (64-bit)13.x1.8.0
