RedHat 3.0.3 upgrade to 2.0 kernel is 2.0.?

Post by Walter B Kulecz P » Tue, 23 Jul 1996 04:00:00



Yesterday I upgraded to 2.0 kernel, everything seems to have gone smoothly and
limited testing found no obvious problems.  My question is the login banner
says "kernel 2.0.0" but I see lots of questions/answers about kernel 2.0.7.  
Anyone know (1) what "patch level is the RedHat upgrade? (2) where I can find a
list of what patches do what?  I never apply a patch unless I'm have the
problem it address under the theory "if it ain't broke" don't fix it.  Didn't
see anything in comp.os.linux.announce or comp.os.linux.answers about 2.0
patches.

As of yesterday, the kernel was up to 2.0.8.  Each version fixed one or more
problems, but some of them introduced new ones.  2.0.6 has been the most
stable version for me.  2.0.7 broke token ring, 2.0.8 fixed it but broke
X-Windows XDM.

My 2.0.6 kernel banner said 2.0.0 too, until I fixed the version string...
