Before You Begin
The Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) is a comprehensive resource for Oracle Linux support subscribers, offering access to Linux software patches, updates and fixes, along with information on updates and support policies. If you are a licensed Oracle customer with an active Oracle Linux support subscription, you will receive an Oracle Linux CSI (customer support identifier) number. You will use this number to register your server on ULN. Registration requires a CSI number and a valid email address.
The uln_register wizard will collect machine information and upload it to Oracle.
Executing the above command will choose the default channel of ol6_<arch>_latest. The _latest channels provide RPMs for all the packages in the distribution, including those errata also provided in the _patch channels (i.e. the version of any RPM downloadable on the _latest channels is always the most recent available). You can subscribe to other channels using the web interface, after you have registered.
