On VMWare Workstation 6.x, one of the hardware settings for the image is the Dispaly, which you can force to a max of 1024×768. As a result the os inside the image wont see anything resolution above that, and will configure appropriately upon install.

Unfortunately it ships with a very old jdk (1.4). Though the installation is free, updating software / packages is not. So far for evaluation purposes, Guess, I’ll to switch to another distro :-(

Be careful installing the VMware tools only for screen optimizing purposes. At AMIS, we use wide screen laptops and VMware doesn’t know how to handle these. Luckily most Linux versions preserve a XF86Config file. So if you mess up your X configuration by installing VMware tools, try to find the saved backup XF86Config file and restore it. Until now, I haven’t found a suitable XF86Config file for our DELL latitude D820 laptops.

Before you can install EBS 11.5.10 on this Linux version you must also install the following packages….

– libaio-0.3.102-1.i386.rpm
– libaio-devel-0.3.102-1.i386.rpm
– openmotif21-2.1.30-11.FC2.1.i386.rpm

And the following Oracle patch

– p4198954_40_LINUX.zip ( compat-libcwait-2.1-1.i386.rpm + compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5.i386.rpm)

Also, don’t forget to set the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL (=2.4.19)

For the current SOA Suite the installer will complain, because it does not recognize this Linux version, but you can easily avoid this with the -ignoresysprereqs option of the installer..
As you can see, I’ve been there, done that.
