I'm using the `linux-lts` kernel on my work machine (less reboots after updates); I know in theory it should be safe to remove the normal `linux` kernel (and it's dependencies) but does anyone know if it is safe in practice?
Attackers compromised several servers at kernel.org using an off-the-shelf Trojan that appears to have entered via a compromised user credential. However, the source code for the Linux kernel does not appear to have been altered, thanks to its & git& distributed revision control system, say kernel maintainers....
Hello all,after installing (and upgrading) the Liquorix kernel I now get a menu (GNU GRUB version 1.98) with option to choose which kernel I want to use during boot (there are six options: liquorix x2 + generic + safe mode for all).
Our database servers (mainly based on the Debian stable packages (=currently Wheezy) seem to have about 4 times more load for the same workload in kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64 then in it's previous 2.6.32-5-amd64 kernel. With all packages the same & booting in the other kernel we can clearly see the difference, and I'm at a loss as to why.
I am on to creating a new AMI image for CentOS 6.4. Until now I was on CentOS 5.6. I started with the CentOS market place image, and what I noticed is that it is running a regular kernel and not xen kernel, unlike my CentOS 5.6 image.
I am trying to answer following questions to my self.
- Does EC2 need a xen-enabled kernel at all?
I have a Baseband / 2.6.32 Kernel but i want to upgrade it to Baseband / 2.6.35 Kernel. because i want to install "IceColdSandwich by elol " Rom and it uses the newer kernel version. (My phone is Spice MI 410 Indian version )
So my question is can i update my Kernel?
If yes, then can i update it using SUT?
Hi there, I would like to ask a question here. is there any difference in terms of kernel performance between two OS, say archlinux and ubuntu when both are using the same version of Kernel? thanks in advance
