rPath Security Advisory: 2011-0010-1
rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 2
rPath Linux 2
Exposure Level Classification:
Local User Non-deterministic
rPath Issue Tracking System:
The kernel in rPath Linux 2 has been updated to 2.6.32.
In order to provide maximum hardware compatibility without
removing features already shipping as a part of rPath Linux 2,
we have decided to base the rPath Linux kernel on the sources
to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 kernel. This is a 2.6.32
kernel with a number of patches added for performance
improvements and additional hardware support. Using this as
our "upstream" source will make it easier for us to keep up
with security and hardware support updates, and may also make
it simpler for customers to build third party kernel modules
In order to stay compatible with existing rPath Linux 2
deployments, our kernel configuration is not the same as what
RHEL 6 uses, and in general, rPath Linux 2 continues to be
quite similar to RHEL 5.
Note that anaconda-templates including this kernel will need
to be released to support installation on new hardware which
requires this kernel update.
