Description Chris Ricker 2003-07-24 12:20:39 EDT
There's not much reason to have it enabled there (not much chance of stack
smashing ;-), so please disable exec shield when starting rescue mode.

That way, grub and such will work without people having to remember /proc

I'd rather have the kernel bits fixed to follow the setting on the binary :)
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-09-24 19:53:36 EDT
Kernel bits fixed, not disabling
