I wrote an article on how to install htop on Oracle Linux before. Thanks to Markus, I learned that installing htop is just a matter of enabling a repo on Oracle Linux 8. I have a Oracle Linux 7 host that I use for a customer and I wanted to install htop on it. I tried to look for epel repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/oracle-linux-ol7.repo but I could not find it. So the only option for me is to add the epel repo under /etc/yum.repo.d
I looked for EPEL repo for Oracle Linux 7 and added the following in /etc/yum.repos.d/oracle-epel-ol7.repo
[ol7_developer_EPEL] name=Oracle Linux $releasever EPEL Packages for Development ($basearch) baseurl=https://yum$ociregion.$ocidomain/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/developer_EPEL/$basearch/ gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle gpgcheck=1 enabled=1
Then run the following command.
sudo yum update sudo yum install htop
Then, you get to install htop on Oracle Linux 7. 🙂
