Chapter 1 Shipped Kernel

Oracle Linux 8 ships with the kernel-4.18.0-80.el8 Red Hat Compatible Kernel (RHCK) kernel package.

The Oracle Linux release is tested as a bundle, as shipped on the installation media image. When installed from the installation media image, the minimum kernel version supported is the one that is included in the image. Downgrading kernel packages is not supported, unless recommended by Oracle Support.
