kernel 1.1 & 1.2

Post by byun » Sat, 16 Mar 1996 04:00:00



hi.  
i just upgraded to kernel 1.2.13 from 1.1.59, for no particular reason,
to be honest.

i'm just wondering what are additions (if any) to the later kernel, besides
more device drivers and loadable module faciliity?

        Well, I happen to be one of those very kernel-happy users who have
all these different versions on his system:

        Linux 1.1.54
        Linux 1.1.59
        Linux 1.2.13
        Linux 1.3.45
        Linux 1.3.57
        Linux 1.3.68
        The latest kernel that will run on my machine

Of course, I build 386-optimized versions of all of them and
Pentium-optimized versions of 1.2.13 and the latest kernel.

        Now, back to the point:  Since I run all these versions, I can
pretty much conclude that 1.2.13 doesn't add much more than device drivers
and perhaps performance enhancements.  Upgrading from 1.1.59 to 1.2.13
doesn't break anything, perhaps except for low-level networking utilities.
There (used to) be a package called Linuxupgr-1.2.tar.gz which helped
ease the transition, but I forgot where it was.
        I hope this helps.  If I made any mistakes, please correct me.

1. Java JDK 1.2 libs with JDK 1.1 VM - or 1.2 version available?

Hi--

I am working with the Java JDK 1.2 beta on Windows, but I would like
to move over to develop on Linux.  The 1.2 jdk, as far as I know, is
not available for Linux -- but the source code for the runtime
libraries is.  

So does anyone know if a version of JDK 1.2 is available for Linux, or
if someone has compiled the 1.2 libraries to run on the 1.1 vm?

Thanks

Paul
