I love challenges, and working with Oracle products has always been a challenge for me. This love/hate relationship started ~20 years ago when I could not set up the first version of Oracle Internet Directory, following the documentation word by word! I had to “fix” several scripts to make it install, and in the end, even though it installed, it still wouldn’t work… It was the only product I cared enough to remember that failure after so many years. Or maybe, the only product I failed to tame.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak there are lots of voices saying that we shouldn’t care so much - especially if we haven’t vaccinated for the flu which shows a lack of diligence on our side.
Let me explain:
Indeed I know I haven’t posted for long. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, but I’m trying to find a balance between posting something about things I know, and making sure the readers do not necessarily assume that this is how we do things in SUSE.
