Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2002-01-25 08:31:36 EST
It would be nice if the web page could display in the 'System Details' which
kernel (as in 'uname -r') was running at the last check-in.
Comment 1 Jay Turner 2002-01-25 11:47:05 EST
This is something which really scares me to think about.  I personally would
like to avoid storing information about the version of code which is running. 
To me there is a difference between reporting what code the RPM database says we
have installed and reporting the exact version of the kernel which happens to be
running.
Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2002-01-28 10:20:33 EST
Hmm, you have a point, but IMHO knowing which kernel is currently running is
quite important, especially if there was a security errata to a kernel. I'd
rather look up 20 machines in RHN then ssh'ing to 20 machines to check if all
machines are running the kernel I expect.
Comment 3 Bret McMillan 2002-03-13 12:29:29 EST
Now showing this (and last boot) on system_details.pxt.

Fix confirmed on live site.
