Supplemental Kernel Patch vs. Generic Kernel



  • 1. Sun's gnome2...
    Hi! I was wondering, has anybody experienced on Sol8/9, with Sun's gnome2, in which the "translucent" terminal window feature sometimes work, and sometimes doesn't? if there a fix for it? it ust looks cool...! =) Thanks! Cheers! Georgie
  • 2. Where is
    Hi Experts: System - Solaris 8 10/00, patched with recommended and patch_check identified patches in February. I'm trying to run mysql-3.23.45 that I just downloaded from Sunfreeware. The install went fine, but when I try to run the script to inititialize my datasets, I'm getting /usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory I don't have that library on my system. The docs on Sunfreeware's mysql section said I needed libgcc 3.3, so I tried to grab it from them, but all I can get is a little windows with: A communications error occurred Please try again The Sunfreeware docs say I may not need that library if I'm using gcc 3.3. So I download that from Sunfreeware, uninstall my old gcc and install this new version. I'm still getting the same error. Suggestions? Thanks Larry
  • 3. Solaris 8 install CD boot problems (non-java)
    Hi All, I am trying to install Solaris 8 1/01 on a SparcServer 5 with 64MB and a very slow external Sun CD-ROM drive and I do not want to use the Installation CD with the Java install (it was so slow that I could not wait for it to finish), I want to use the old non-java based command-line installer. Some google search revealed that it was possible to boot from the first or second Solaris 8 software CD. Is this correct? If yes which CD should I boot from and what is the boot command line I should use? I have tried both CDs with the 'boot cdrom' command, but with the first CD it just hung without returning to the boot prompt, with the second CD I got an error message complaining about invalid label or something similar. The CD drive works, because I can boot the java installation CD. The first and second CD are all right, too, because I can mount and browse them with Linux. Any suggestions I should try? Thanks in advance. Regards, Zoltan

It takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour for a login window to appear. My error logs match his exactly. Yet I have no problems connecting to Irix. I've read the faq and specify the font path as above.
  • 5. Sun 73 GB Info required
    Could someone post a prtvtoc output from a Sun 73 GB disk please (as found on a 280R) ? I only want the bytes/sector, sectors/track, tracks/cylinder, sectors/cylinder, cylinders and accessible cylinders information, although the "whole disk partition" would be useful, so you can remove your partition information if you want. Thanks in advance. Chris.

Supplemental Kernel Patch vs. Generic Kernel

Postby noone » Thu, 27 May 2004 13:27:27 GMT

Got a new server, an E280R, with Solaris8 and with kernel 114018-01 ( instead of the usual 108528-xx ).
Looking at SunSolve, 114018 is Supplemental Kernel Update Patch for 108528-18.
I want to apply the latest kernel, or latest cluster / recommended patch for Solaris8.

However, it mentioned that for 114018-01:
Patches which conflict with this patch: 108528-19 (or newer)

How would one go about this if installing the latest kernel would conflict with the existing one ?

Remove 114018-01 with patchrm and then install 108528-29, followed by

Thanx. but why is patch 117000-05 not included / merged with 108528-xx ?
And patch 117350 for the matter as well ?

Unlike the 114018 patch, which was a one-time kernel patch, patch 117000 had alrady 5 releases of it.

Patch 108528-xx had gotten way to big and rather than reissuing a
basically unchanged monster patch each time, a different approach was
taken: freeze patch 108528-xx and issue changes through 117000-05.

It's the new main kernel patch.

I wish they'd documented that instead of confusing the hell out of us.  
Is it the same
deal with Solaris 9 112233-12/117171-02 ?

Please can you ask them to put a reference in the rejuvinated KU README?

Possibly; can't find any documentation, though.

1.RTAI vs RTLinuxFree vs 2.6 Kernel + RT Pre-emption patch

So, which one is best? :)
I am new to RT development, and have been assigned the task of
determining the "best" RT on Linux strategy for an embedded control
system on an industrial machine - we are definitely wanting to use an
"On Linux" method, as there are several other, non-RT tasks/services
that this system will do/provide - the RT task, while it is the *most*
important thing that this system will be doing (triggering/capturing
data samples via serial port), will be one of the *least* system
resource-intensive processes that run on this embedded system. Other
services (all non-RT) will include database, live video stream
capture/re-package/re-transmit, UDP broadcasting of custom data
packets, and TCP/IP network routing between an external network and the
machine-internal network.

I have been researching all 3 options for about 1 week (full time) now,
and I have not found any comprehensive, *recent*
comparisons/testimonials/benchmarks that involve the latest
versions/capabilities of the 3 possibilities.

Thanks for the assistance!

Well, for one they did not use the patch you applied.  That may be the
cause, but also that "ambassador atm driver" is rather mysterious.  

But _why_ would you compile a kernel to match a distribution kernel that
has support for everything ever invented?  Read the README and run "make
menuconfig" or your preference.  That will walk you through the process of
compiling a kernel for your needs.
