thank you for your quick response.
I don´t think I expressed my issue well. It has nothing to do with Oracle database.
The servers have Oracle VM sofware/OS installed on them, but the HP firmware needs to be
updated. The suggestion we got was to install Oracle Linux 6 update 2 in order to update
firmware and then reinstall OVM server. This would be very tedious...
The issue is really with getting a suitable environment in order to update the HP
firmware, without affecting the OVM installation.
I think we´re just going to try it...we may not hit the ld-linux.so.2 issue, but another
one instead, we´ll see...

I was wondering if the Fedora livecd v.16 contains the ld-linux.so.2

Recent versions of glibc seem to provide that version of ld-linux.so.
All of my machines are using F17 (due for release in a few weeks) or
rawhide, so I can't easily check F16, but it probably also has the same
version of ld-linux.so.
How compatible is Fedora with Red Hat and (Oracle Linux)?
It depends on what you need. They all use the same packaging system.
Fedora is using systemd instead of init for starting processes. There
is support for init scripts, but the differences could matter for some
I do run sqlplus on a F17 machine at work. I needed to label some of
the bundled libraries since they were not correctly built (I think
they used writeable segments) and selinux blocks them by default.
That is a long way from running an oracle database instance though.
The livecd mailing list is probably not the best place to ask about this.
This is going to hit a much smaller part of the Fedora population, than
say the users list, and really your question isn't live CD specific even
though you are planning to use a live image for your work.
