Fedora updated to Fedora Core 2 (FC2)

Sep 14, 2004 by Christopher Aker
I’ve updated the Fedora distro for Fedora Core 2. The minimum size increased a little bit to 630MB. If you plan on using this with a 2.6 kernel, make sure to “mv /lib/tls /lib/tls-disabled” until UML fully supports NPTL. [img]http://fedora.redhat.com/images/header-fedora_logo.png[/img] -Chris

Jan 11, 2004 by Christopher Aker
Request for Testing! I would appreciate it if some of you would test a new option which changes the way UML writes to your filesystem files, and post your experiences here. Normally, UML uses the standard open/close read/write library calls. The problem with this is that it duplicates data in the host’s page cache, and […]
