          Please refer to Oracle EBS R12 installations docs for the list of supported Linux OS.

          Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86 [ID 761564.1]
          Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86-64 [ID 761566.1]

          Linux 6 requires extra steps (mentioned in the docs). And, if you can go with 64-bit, then you can take advantage of utilizing more than 4 GB (Frequently Asked Questions: Oracle E-Business Suite Support on x86-64 [ID 343917.1]).

          Thanks,
          Hussein

              Hi Carlo,

              This is mentioned in the two docs referenced above -- Please do not post the contents of MOS docs since this violates Oracle support agreement policy.

              Thanks,
              Hussein
