Red Hat Product Errata RHEA-2008:0436 normal SHIPPED_LIVE new package: redhat-release for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 2008-05-21 17:54:49 UTC

Description Daniel Riek 2007-12-19 19:19:29 UTC
The default user-space for RHEL 5 on PPC64 is 32bit for performance reasons.
While in generally makes a lot of sense, it poses an unneccesary limit on the
ability to address large memory in server applications such as mysql.

So we need to add relevant applications as ppc64 as well:
* mysql-server
* postgresql
* java on the Supplementary (available from IBM)
* apache
* tomcat

Possibly others.

Comment 8 Milan Zázrivec 2008-04-02 14:59:31 UTC
httpd and tomcat5 packages exist in RHEL5.2-Server-20080326.0 as ppc only (no ppc64)

The other packages from the list are OK.

Comment 9 Dennis Gregorovic 2008-04-02 16:16:30 UTC
I had the package names a bit off.  Corrected names checked into CVS.  Fix
should appear in the next set of trees.

Comment 12 Milan Zázrivec 2008-04-04 12:57:35 UTC
Verified with RHEL5.2-Server-20080404.nightly (ppc).
