What is Spacewalk?
Spacewalk is an opensource and upstream community project for Redhat Satellite which helps with management of Linux systems. Or, should I say, it used to? The official introduction page for Spacewalk, suggests that the project has been discontinued on May 31, 2020. Well, I really liked spacewalk and the capabilities it offered. Does it mean that as an Oracle Linux user or, administrator, I will no longer be able to use or, get support on Spacewalk?
Spacewalk and Oracle Linux
Well, the answer to the usage and support on Spacewalk for Oracle Linux is that it is still supported!
Yes, Oracle continues to support Spacewalk and in fact, the latest release (Spacewalk 2.10) was announced on August 5, 2020.
So, if you are still on OEL5 or, OEL6, it might be time for an upgrade!
Hope this helps!
