Running the Oracle RCU on OEL 6.1
The current Repository Creation Utility - RCU (184.108.40.206) does not run successfully on Oracle Enterprise Linux OEL 6.1 - or at least it didn't on my VirtualBox image. You will get an error about a missing library (libXext).
You can get around this problem by editing the bin/rcu script and changing the JRE home directory to use the native JRE from the O/S instead of the one bundled with the RCU. For example - /usr/java/latest/jre.
Please note that OEL 6.1 is not yet certified for FMW and the above is *NOT SUPPORTED*. Use at your own risk.
