Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 223934
missing reference to various kernels, e.g. kernel-largesmp , -PAE, xen
Last modified: 2009-08-20 00:16:24 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)
I logged the same bug twice by mistake (after getting an "Incorrect product
name" after submitting). When I try to close this bug as a dupe, I get the error
"You tried to change the Status field from NEW to CLOSED, but only the owner or
submitter of the bug, or a sufficiently empowered user, may change that field."
This bug is a dupe of 223933, please close
Don, please action.
