Platform: Linux Versions: 5.5

Problem Description

COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.5 self-certified for Oracle Linux 7.7 and 8.0

Solution

COMSOL has not tested COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.5 on Oracle Linux, and therefore we do not list Oracle Linux as an officially supported platform on our system requirements page. However, COMSOL has tested COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.5 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.7 and 8.0, and those operating systems are officially supported. Given the similarity of Oracle Linux to RHEL, we fully expect that COMSOL 5.5 supports Oracle Linux 7.7 and 8.0 under the RHCK kernel, and have self-certified with Oracle on that basis.
