CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2005:366
The following updated files have been uploaded and are currently
syncing to the mirrors:
Due to the fact that the upstream kernel didn't quite work on basic
rx1600 box (the one w/o MC), there has been two kernels. The official
CentOS-4 one and the one i have patched to work on above mentioned box.
I do myself have such boxen, so i need it myself.
So if you have installed on such box, be carefull about the update
process. Make sure you get the one from centosplus and not the stock one.
I've personally ran this kernel-2.6.9-22.214.171.124.EC myself now couple
hours while building the rest of the stuff. As the side effect, the
*EC* kernels does have XFS enabled as it has JFS too (JFS won't work on
ia64 with default page size tho). The side effect being that i do have
myself a unified codebase and this kernel is used on ppc32 too, so
there is some extra features in it for ia64 too because of that.
If you're still reading, the plan would be to release 4.1/U1 w/o modified
kernel as there is installation/update path for those whom might need
the modified kernel from the initial release.
