          Oracle Linux is an open-source operating system, I would recommend you to first install Oracle Linux on your test environment and start practicing that's the only way to learn.

          Oracle Linux can be downloaded through Oracle's E-delivery service or from a variety of mirror sites.

          Please check the below link to DL and find out more about Oracle Linux.

            https://linux.oracle.com will provide you with links to documentation and Oracle Linux specific information. Beside the Oracle UEK kernel, Oracle Linux is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and information you find for RHEL should be good. If you need more specific help, please ask more specific questions, for instance, what are you interested in learning, such as installing, configuring for Oracle database products, shell scripting, etc.

                The standard installation package manager is the yum utility, which unlike rpm resolves software dependencies and prevents you from damaging your system. You can use yum to query and install software. For example:


                yum list *rdbms*

                yum provides /bin/ls

                yum search perl

                yum info oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall

                yum install firefox



                After installing the appropriate prerequisite package you can use ssh with X forwarding to display the Oracle universal installer (OUI).


                yum install oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall

                mount /dev/cdrom /mnt

                passwd oracle

                ssh -X oracle@localhost
