GNU Hurd 0.6 released

Linux Weekly News - cs, 2015-04-16 23:19
It has been roughly a year and a half since the last release of the GNU Hurd operating system, so it may be of interest to some readers that GNU Hurd 0.6 has been released along with GNU Mach 1.5 (the microkernel that Hurd runs on) and GNU MIG 1.5 (the Mach Interface Generator, which generates code to handle remote procedure calls). New features include procfs and random translators; cleanups and stylistic fixes, some of which came from static analysis; message dispatching improvements; integer hashing performance improvements; a split of the init server into a startup server and an init program based on System V init; and more. "GNU Hurd runs on 32-bit x86 machines. A version running on 64-bit x86 (x86_64) machines is in progress. Volunteers interested in ports to other architectures are sought; please contact us (see below) if you'd like to help. To compile the Hurd, you need a toolchain configured to target i?86-gnu; you cannot use a toolchain targeting GNU/Linux. Also note that you cannot run the Hurd "in isolation": you'll need to add further components such as the GNU Mach microkernel and the GNU C Library (glibc), to turn it into a runnable system."

Boyer: Fedora 22 and Kernel 4.0

Linux Weekly News - cs, 2015-04-16 22:13
On his blog, Josh Boyer looks at the choice of the 4.0 kernel for Fedora 22. While the underpinnings of the live kernel patching feature have been merged, even when it is fully operational it is probably not something that Fedora (and perhaps other distributions) will use often (or at all). "In reality, we might not ever really leverage the live patching functionality in Fedora itself. It is understandable that people want to patch their kernel without rebooting, but the mechanism is mostly targeted at small bugfixes and security patches. You cannot, for example, live patch from version 4.0 to 4.1. Given that the Fedora kernel rebases both from stable kernel (e.g. 3.19.2 to 3.19.3) and major release kernels over the lifetime of a Fedora release, we don't have much opportunity to build the live patches."
