2.5.64-bk3 UML kernel available

2.5.64-bk3 UML kernel available

Post by William Stearn » Mon, 10 Mar 2003 04:30:09



Good day, all,
        For those interested in trying out a 2.5 kernel but are a little
nervous about using it on a production system, I have a precompiled UML
kernel at http://www.stearns.org/uml/linux-2.5.64-bk3-63um1-3.bz2 .  Pull
down, decompress, and use with a uml root filesystem (see
http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net).  Options used are in
http://www.stearns.org/uml/config-2.5.64-bk3-63um1-3 , System.map at
http://www.stearns.org/uml/System.map-2.5.64-bk3-63um1-3 .
        As with any development kernel, please remember that this may very
well corrupt data.  Please make a backup of your UML root filesystem
before using.  The kernel _appears_ to work - no more guarantees than
that.  :-)
        (For those interested in compiling it themselves, Jeff's
2.5.63-um1 patch plus
http://www.stearns.org/uml/linux-2.5.64-bk3-63um1-initcall.patch is all
that appears to be needed)
        Cheers,
        - Bill

1. 2.5.64-mm4 looking good (Re: Oops in 2.5.64bk3)

I've been running 2.5.64-mm4 for a couple of
hours now, and having logged in/out of X, it
seems to be holding up so far, no oopses yet -

I have to say, doing the "dbench + lament +
dragging an xterm around the screen" test in
2.5.64-mm4 is absolutely a dream on this
little celeron box  - in fact it absolutely blows
away my more powerful P4-1800 running
2.4.20-ck4, which has the benefit of all the
2.4 low latency goodies.

Keep up the good work guys -

Best Regards,

Joe
