Missing sparc rpms of kernel 2.2.22-6.2.2
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:57 EDT
Description of Problem: Advisory RHSA-2002:210-06 mentions that the sparc
architecture is concerned by the vulnerabilities but only ix86 and alpha
packages are issued. Will sparc rpms be issued?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.2.22-6.2.2
Steps to Reproduce:
I have uploaded sparc kernels to
(and can I recommend taking a look at the aurora distribution, which is
basically RHL 7.3 compiled for sparc)
Thanks for the kernels!
Any special reason these weren't included in the advisory?
(I've already downloaded Aurora and will give it a try asap)
I can install and boot on the 64bit kernel fine but upgrading kernel-utils gives
me an error message (that I need Glibc 2.2?)
[root@toto seyman]# rpm -q kernel kernel-utils glibc
[root@toto seyman]# rpm -Uvh kernel-utils-2.2.22-6.2.2sparc.sparc.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.3) is needed by kernel-utils-2.2.22-6.2.2sparc
Time to send this bug to the big bugzilla in the sky.
