Linux 0.99 patchlevel 9

Post by Linus Torval » Sun, 25 Apr 1993 12:04:54

The latest kernel release is 0.99.9, and can be found on
pub/OS/Linux/PEOPLE/Linus, both as patches relative to pl8 and as full
sources.  The only major new feature is that the ST-0x driver has
finally been updated to the scatter-gather code: ST-0x users should with
luck get about 5 times the performance on disk-operations..  Seagate
code written by Drew Eckhardt.

0.99.9 also fixes:
 - the FPU-emulator should now handle all rounding-modes correctly, and
   pass all the paranoia package tests.  Patches by Bill Metzenthen.
 - bootup enhancements by Chrisoph Niemann (but the SVGA mode numbers
   have changed, so you may have to edit your lilo configuration file
   and/or the main Makefile to get the mode you normally want)
 - ext2fs updated to the very latest release.  Code by Remy Card and
   Stephen Tweedie.
 - various minor patches, some of them cosmetic, some of them fixes to
   smaller bugs..  Thanks to everybody who sent them in (even though not
   all made it)

It might be a good idea to test it all out,



1. sysv ipc patches for Linux 0.99 patchlevel 7

I have uploaded ipcdelta.tar.z to (pub/Linux/Incoming)

This is a quick fix release for linux-0.99p7
It will not work with earlier versions of the kernel.

Coming soon: There will be an improved release or inclusion
in the standard linux distribution.

ipcbeta  : don't use .... buggy as hell.
ipcbeta+ : works reasonably with linux-0.98p6? ... linux-0.99p6
ipcdelta : works with linux-0.99p7
