Started all over again

It's been a while since I've been working on this personal project. Last weekend I picked up again. I have downloaded the latest version of Oracle's Virtual Box (version 3.2.10) and again installed Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5 as guest OS. This time, the simplest way possible. Soon I will add pages with screenshots, including installing the Guest Additions in Oracle's Virtual Box, necessary to share a disk with the host OS (Windows 7).

Now I have to apply some patches to Linux before I can install EBS R12.1.1. Half a year ago, I already downloaded the sources of EBS R12.1.1 from E-Delivery (about 70 Gb). Downloading them again would take some time, so I compared the MD5 hash of each file with the value printed on E-Delivery (under the button 'Digest'). For this I used MD5sums for Windows. From only two files I had to download a newer version. That was easy.

To be continued soon ....
