Possibly a good option - if I didn't trust Oracle even less than IBM.  I 
wonder if ElRepo will work that the Oracle distro? RH has removed a lot 
of hardware support lately and for some older machines ElRepo drivers 
are needed to even install.

That link has a script for converting from CentOS 6 or 7 to Oracle's 
version.  But not 8, which is ironic in this context.

Is there a CentOS forums equivalent for this distro somewhere in "Oracle 
Communities" or elsewhere?

I am able to receive mail from beowulf.org it is not accepting my emails.)
