Description Riaan van Niekerk 2007-01-23 05:23:38 UTC
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
- kernel-PAE
- kernel-xen

(as seen in http://www.redhat.com/f/summitfiles/presentation/May31/Core%20OS/
Riek_RHEL%20Update.sxi)

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)

Comment 2 Don Domingo 2007-01-25 00:15:46 UTC
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
me know.

Comment 3 Riaan van Niekerk 2007-01-25 12:48:35 UTC
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)

Comment 4 Don Domingo 2007-01-29 00:07:56 UTC
nope, just post them in this bug. it'll be easier for me to track & resolve them
this way. :-)
