    The reason to use Oracle EL instead of RH is that RH refuses to put a number of bug fixes into place for Oracle products. Oracle submitted thousands (yes, thousands) of bug fixes and were ignored by RH. If you want to run Oracle on RH, run OEL. I've seen many customers who get really mad at Oracle because something doesn't work correctly on RH. There is nothing Oracle can do except recommend a different OS vendor
