Subjectoracle rmap kernel version
Does anyone have any production experience running Oracle 8i on Linux? I've 
run it at home, RH 7.2 with vanilla 2.4.16 kernel all IDE drives, and its
fast. We are replacing our SUN/Oracle 8 servers at work in next couple of
months with Linux/Oracle 8i (Pentium 4 1GB ram). My question is, what is the
best kernel version to use, vanilla 2.4.x or a RH kernel built from the ac
tree with rmap. All drives will be SCSI.
I read an interview yesterday with Rik van Riel where he said rmap worked
better for db servers but I expect that he is partial to rmap 8-).
Our web servers are running vanilla 2.4.16 and we haven't had a problem yet
(knock on wood).

Thanks !
