Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-267
2004-08-20
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : kernel
Version : 2.6.8
Release : 1.521
Summary : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update kernel updates the Fedora Core 2 kernel to version 2.6.8. Included in this new upstream kernel are several fixes on the networking front, including traffic shaping and window scaling fixes.

Note: This kernel includes several Execshield cleanups and changes, and as a result programs that make certain restrictive assumptions about the virtual address space (such as Wine) need a different workaround than before. The applications can get the old (legacy) VA layout via the setarch -L application option when a recent enough serarch application is in use, in addition there now is a global switch to go to the legacy VA layout: echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/legacy_va_layout
