Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 223933
missing reference to various kernels, e.g. kernel-largesmp , -PAE, xen
Last modified: 2010-08-25 19:08:00 EDT
On the above page, various kernel versions and their functions are described. I
see the following omissions:
- kernel-largesmp (and -devel) : support for more than 8 CPUs on x86_64, more
than 54 CPUs on POWER, and more than 256 CPUs on IA64
(as seen in http://www.redhat.com/f/summitfiles/presentation/May31/Core%20OS/
Also, kernel-hugemem is RHEL 3 only (e.g. deprecated) and can be removed IMHO.
This section should probably be rewritten to take into account the reduced
amount of kernel packages (e.g. no more kernel-smp) as well as the new
capabilities of kernel packages (e.g. smp-capable "kernel" package)
*** Bug 223934 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
thanks Riaan. will have these items up on the next build.
I'm still currently updating that chapter. any other updates to it, please let
I have picked up a number of other problems. Do I create a separate one for each
issue I pick up? Is there any way I can see your updates as you apply them?
(rather than having to wait for a snapshot to be made public)
nope, just post them in this bug. it'll be easier for me to track & resolve them
this way. :-)
