Ubuntu has discontinued support for the 32-bit powerpc architecture in Zesty Zappus (17.04). "We are well into Feature Freeze at this point, so an update is overdue. As of Feature Freeze in February, the status is that powerpc packages are no longer considered for proposed-migration, and we have discontinued all CD image builds for powerpc in zesty. For the moment, uploads continue to be built for powerpc in Launchpad, and packages are still published in the archive. You should expect both to be discontinued before the 17.04 release."
Brendan Gregg shows how to do scheduler profiling with the perf sched command. "perf sched timehist was added in Linux 4.10, and shows the scheduler latency by event, including the time the task was waiting to be woken up (wait time) and the scheduler latency after wakeup to running (sch delay). It's the scheduler latency that we're more interested in tuning."
Security updates have been issued by Arch Linux (linux-zen), Debian (calibre, libdatetime-timezone-perl, tzdata, wireshark, and wordpress), Fedora (icoutils and tcpreplay), Mageia (wavpack), openSUSE (dracut and qemu), and SUSE (firefox and xen).
The remaining users of RHEL 5 (and derivatives) will want to know that maintenance of the EPEL-5 repository is coming to an end. "In the end, EPEL-5 went live sometime in April of 2007 and over the next 10 years grew to a repository of over 5000 source packages and 200,000 unique ip addresses checking in per day at its peak of 240,000 in early 2013. While every package built for EPEL is done with the RHEL packages, all of these packages have been useful for the various community rebuilds (CentOS, Scientific Linux, Amazon Linux) of RHEL. This meant that growth in those eco-systems brought more users into using EPEL and helping on packaging as later RHEL releases came out. However as these newer releases and rebuilds grew in usage, the number of EPEL-5 users has gradually fallen to around 160,000 unique ip addresses per day. Also over that time, the number of packages supported by developers has fallen and the repository has shrunk in size to 2000 source packages."
