Updating the kernel

When the CPU is in kernel mode, it is assumed to be executing trusted software, and thus it can execute any instructions and reference any memory addresses (i.e., locations in memory).

Its built-in Oracle Solaris Native Zones technology provides application virtualization through isolated, encapsulated, and highly secure environments that run on top of a single, common kernel.The examples in this article will leave you familiar with the basic procedures for installing, configuring, and managing kernel zones in Oracle Solaris 11.2.Note: This article demonstrates how to update a kernel zone from Oracle Solaris 11.2 to a later release through examples that mention "Oracle Solaris 11.3" and "Oracle Solaris Next." These examples are purely hypothetical and are for demonstration purposes only; no release later than Oracle Solaris 11.2 is currently available.The following procedure is a step-by-step guide (Cookbook) with tips and information for installing Oracle Database 10g on Red Hat Linux.This guide shows how I installed 10g Database on the following Red Hat systems: Some files/packages were not included with Mandrake 10 which can be downloaded from: ftp://ftp.rediris.es/sites/psu.edu/mandrake-devel/cooker/i586/Mandrake/RPMS/setarch-1.3-1mdk.i586ftp://194.1/linux/contrib/openmotif/linux-rpm/openmotif-2.1.30-1_ICS.i386Validation/Certification For Validations/Certifications, go to Oracle's Certification Matrices.Many years ago, when I first began with Linux, installing applications and keeping a system up to date was not an easy feat.
