Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2008-10-30 11:08:48 EDT
Mind that a new version will be pulled at feature freeze, not code freeze (maybe just a matter of nomenclature). Ping me when that version is available.
Comment 2 IBM Bug Proxy 2009-03-02 19:30:29 EST
libhugetlbfs 2.2 should be packaged in Fedora. The three RPMs are


Please pull all three packages. Thanks
Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2009-03-18 06:15:32 EDT
As version 2.2 is now in Fedora, this should get pulled for RHEL6.

We need to keep this bug opened until we test it in rhel6 since this is a rhel6 feature.

These are also expected failures, they are testing the old relinking method.  These tests should only be used to determine is the old method works with a particular compiler/binutils combination.  As long as the new linker method worked (and it looks like it did) these errors can be ignored.

------- Comment From ebmunson@us.ibm.com 2010-05-06 11:46 EDT-------
Verified with RHEL 6 Snap 1.  There is a small problem with the test suite that does not affect the library or any of the utilities.  I will open a separate bu with a patch to fix the issue but this should not stand in the way of the package update.
Comment 9 Radek Bíba 2010-05-27 04:48:04 EDT
Thank you for the verification.
