I want to download a WebLogic Server to my computer, I use 2.6.14-gentoo-r5 Linux linux System, There are WebLogic visions for Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (9, x86), Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (9, EM64T, AMD64), Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (9, Itanium),Red Hat Enterprise Linux (3.0, 4.0, x86),Red Hat Enterprise Linux (4.0, EM64T, AMD64),Red Hat Enterprise Linux (4.0, Itanium). I could not find one for gentoo. Please help! Thanks!

Welcome to the Javaranch, fellow Gentoo user. Gentoo does not appear to be a supported configuration for Weblogic. I'd think Gentoo unsuitable for data center use for several reasons: lack of professional support, the source-level distribution and lack of a standard platform among them. However, since Weblogic is built on Java, I'd think it should run on any Linux distribution that could support a JDK. Try installing one of the Linux versions.
If that doesn't work and you REALLY want to run Gentoo and Weblogic, consider using VMWare to run SUSE or RedHat in a virtual machine and install Weblogic on it.

I dont think there will be any problem running weblogic under gentoo - unless you use the standard JVMs - do not use the one that gentoo comes bundled with. Weblogic 9.0 onwards uses weblogic's JRockit 5 - I dont know if it plays well with Sun's JVM

Then I run weblogic in ubuntu dapper and dont remember doing anything special to make it work - other than pointing it to the right JVM.

Good luck !!
