Chapter 2 Shipped Kernels

Oracle Linux 7 Update 5 (aarch64) ships with the following kernel packages:

kernel-uek-4.14.35-1818.0.9.el7uek

Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 5 (UEK R5), which is the default kernel.

Oracle Linux 7 Update 5 (aarch64) is only shipped with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 5 and only this kernel is supported at this time.

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 included in the image. Downgrading kernel packages is not supported, unless recommended by Oracle Support.

The kernel source code for the shipped kernel is available after the initial release through a public git source code repository at https://github.com/oracle/linux-uek.
