1. Release Notes Updates
1. Release Notes Updates
T his section contains information about Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 that did not make it into the
Release Notes included in the distribution.
1.1. Feature Updates
Audit Aktualisierung
T he audit packages contain user-space utilities for storing and searching the audit records
generated by the audit subsystem in the Linux 2.6 kernel.
T hese updated packages upgrade the auditd daemon and its utilities to the newer upstream
version 1.7.7, which provides the following enhancements over the previous version:
the auditctl program, which is used to control the behavior of the audit subsystem, now
supports multiple keys in the audit rules.
a new utility, ausyscall, which is used to cross-reference syscall name and number
information, is now provided in these updated packages.
the aureport program has been enhanced to provide reports about keys it sees in audit
events.
event log parsing for the ausearch and aureport programs has been improved.
a sample ST IG rules file, named "stig.rules", is newly provided in these updated packages.
T his file contains the auditctl rules which are loaded whenever the audit daemon is started
by init scripts.
In addition to the listed enhancements, these updated audit packages also include a new
feature to allow a server to aggregate the logs of remote systems. T he following instructions
can be followed to enable this feature:
1. T he audispd-plugins package should be installed on all clients (but need not be installed
on the server), and the parameters for "remote_server" and "port" should be set in the
/etc/audisp/audisp-remote.conf configuration file.
2. On the server, which aggregates the logs, the "tcp_listen_port" parameter in the
/etc/audit/auditd.conf file must be set to the same port number as the clients.
3. Because the auditd daemon is protected by SELinux, semanage (the SELinux policy
management tool) must also have the same port listed in its database. If the server and
client machines had all been configured to use port 1000, for example, then running this
command would accomplish this:
semanage port -a -t audit_port_t -p tcp 1000
4. T he final step in configuring remote log aggregation is to edit the /etc/hosts.allow
configuration file to inform tcp_wrappers which machines or subnets the auditd daemon
should allow connections from.
wpa_supplicant re-base
wpa_supplicant has been re-based to the latest upstream stable version 0.5.10 and include
backported fixes for a number of issues that may affect users of wireless drivers that depend
on the kernel's mac80211 wireless stack. Specific fixes and enhancements include:
Support for a D-Bus control interface has been added. D-Bus is a popular lightweight InterProcess Communication mechanism, and the addition of this control interface to
3
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Process Communication mechanism, and the addition of this control interface to
wpa_supplicant allows applications (like NetworkManager) to more reliably control the
supplicant.
Cisco Aironet 340/350 wireless cards were not able to successfully connect to 802.1xenabled wireless networks, often used in security sensitive organizations. During the
connection process at the 4-Way WPA handshake stage, sending encryption keys to the
driver would clear the wireless card firmware's authentication state. With this update, the
supplicant uses an alternate method of supplying encryption keys to the kernel driver,
allowing authentication state to be preserved in the Aironet firmware and 802.1x
connections to succeed.
Kernel drivers utilizing the new mac80211 wireless stack were sometimes unable to connect
to wireless networks, either failing to find the requested network, or prematurely ending
communication with the wireless access point during the connection process. Some drivers
were prone to reporting multiple disconnection events during the association process,
confusing the supplicant and causing long timeouts. T he supplicant also did not sufficiently
instruct the driver to disconnect when switching access points. T his update fixes these
issues and, in conjunction with kernel driver updates, allow more wireless hardware to
successfully connect to wireless networks.
NetworkManager re-base
NetworkManager has been updated to version 0.7.0. T his update provides the following fixes
and enhancements:
NetworkManager would not display a LEAP password, even when the user selected the
"show password" option. T his has been fixed through a rebase to NetworkManager 0.7.
During the beta phase, a version of NetworkManager was unable to automatically start
network interfaces for which "ONBOOT =no" was present in the ifcfg file. NetworkManager
now ignores this value unless "NM_RESPECT _ONBOOT =yes" is also present.
a NetworkManager plug-in was named for its upstream repository. T his could cause endusers to mistake the plug-in for an un-supported addition to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. T his
plug-in has been renamed to "ifcfg-rh".
with this update, support has been added to NetworkManager for wired 802.1x
authentication. However, after creating an 802.1x-enabled wired connection in the
NetworkManager connection editor, it may be necessary to log out, then log back in before
the connection can be used from the NetworkManager applet menu.
NetworkManager attempted to set a hostname, but only after X had already done so. T he
user could not then open new windows because the authority files had been set by X with a
different hostname. NetworkManager no longer sets hostnames.
an update for NetworkManager that was available in the beta phase would change the run
level enablement of the package during installation, and thus prevent NetworkManager from
starting. NetworkManager no longer changes run level enablements during installation.
on a system with more than one network adapter, network keys saved by the user while
connecting with one adapter would not be available when the user attempted to connect with
the other adapter. NetworkManager can now retrieve and use network keys saved for a
different adapter on the same network.
previously, NetworkManager would not always prompt the user for a new network key if the
protocol or key of a wireless network changed. Although NetworkManager would wait for a
new key, it would not always open a dialog box and allow the user to provide one.
NetworkManager will now open a dialog box when needed.
several bug fixes and enhancements for NetworkManager were available upstream.
NetworkManager has been rebased to version 0.7 to incorporate these improvements,
4
1. Release Notes Updates
including mobile broadband functionality, Phase2 WPA support, and static IP functionality.
NetworkManager would would cause a segmentation fault when resuming a session. T his
was caused by the HAL dropping privileges before connecting to D-Bus, meaning that the
HAL could not send signals to NetworkManager. NetworkManager now explicitly permits
signals from the HAL.
sometimes, X would freeze if the NetworkManager menu and a keyring manager window
were open at the same time. T his updated package includes a patch from upstream that
prevents this behavior.
if NetworkManager requires a network key from the user, it will open a pop-up window.
However, the applet previously could not steal focus from metacity and would remain in the
background. T he window was therefore not obvious to the user. T he applet now opens in
the foreground, alerting the user to take action.
when resuming, NetworkManager could sometimes re-establish a wireless connection, but
not a route. A fix for this problem from upstream has been included in this update.
NetworkManager did not previously support Cisco Airo Wi-Fi cards, as these devices did not
respond to NetworkManager's attempts to detect them. NetworkManager can now detect
and use these cards.
the NetworkManager applet would wake up and redraw its icon once per second, even when
NetworkManager was not active. Now, the applet will not wake up unless NetworkManager is
running.
NetworkManager 0.7 connects faster than libnotify can provide a notification bubble. When
this happens, the bubble will appear at the top left corner of the screen, rather than under
the taskbar. NetworkManager notification bubbles are now delayed for a few seconds,
allowing libnotify to react.
dbus-glib re-base
T he dbus-glib integration library has been re-based to version 0.73.8 T his update provides
support to updated versions of NetworkManager and also implements the following bugfix and
enhancements
cleanup of the DBusGProxy objects treated pending remote method calls incorrectly and
may have resulted in freeing invalid memory. Consequently, processes using DBusGProxy
objects may have crashed when the DBusGProxy object was freed. With this update dbusglib correctly handles the destruction of DBusGProxy objects, resolving this issue.
two new function calls, dbus_g_proxy_call_with_tim eout and
dbus_g_proxy_begin_call_with_tim eout, have been added to dbus-glib providing
the ability to specify a timeout when making a request to a remote service.
dbus-binding-tool now ignores namespaced Extensible Markup Language (XML) nodes
when processing introspection definition files.
Sudo Aktualisierung
sudo wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf Upstream Version 1.6.9. Diese Version von sudo
unterstützt nun LDAP, und ermöglicht das Suchen nach sudo-Rechten auch im Unterbaum,
statt nur der Basis-Suche (d.h. nur Baum-Ebene). Dies ermöglicht es Administratoren, sudoRechte in einem Baum zu kategorisieren, was wiederum die Handhabung der
Benutzerprivilegien vereinfacht.
5
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Anmerkung
the env_reset sudoers option from newer sudo will reset the PAT H environment
variable. T his is different from the behaviour in sudo-1.9.8. T o keep the old behaviour
simply add PAT H variable into env_keep in sudoers file.
LVM-based Cluster mirroring
With this update, the ability to create LVM mirrors in a cluster environment (i.e. while using
CLVM) is now available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux It provides for simultaneous access from
multiple cluster machines, like when using a cluster-aware file system. T his solution is
compatible with existing single-machine mirrors. When switching a mirrored logical volume
between single-machine and cluster-aware, no resynchronization is necessary.
1.2. Resolved Issues
system -config-network requires the fonts provided with xorg-x11-fonts-T ype1 in order to
display. However, this fonts package was not previously set as a dependency for system -confignetwork and it was therefore possible (for example, in the case of a minimal installation) for
system -config-network to be present on a system and yet unable to function because these
fonts were missing. T his update sets xorg-x11-fonts-T ype1 as a dependency for system config-network to ensure that these fonts will be available and that system -config-network
will display correctly.
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2, a 64-bit version of httpd was included in addition to the existing 32bit httpd in the PowerPC architecture. If a user installed both versions, an httpd conflict would
occur, preventing httpd from functioning properly.
T o resolve this issue, the 64-bit version of httpd has been removed from this release. Any systems
with the previous 64-bit version of httpd installed should remove the package before upgrade.
1.3. Driver Updates
the SCSI device handler infrastructure (scsi_dh) has been updated, providing added support for LSI
RDAC SCSI based storage devices.
the tg3 driver for Broadcom T igon3 ethernet devices has been updated to version 3.93. T his applies
several upstream changes for new hardware. However, the 5785 hardware is not fully supported.
T his device may be detected by the driver, but lack of PHY support may cause these chips to not
function correctly and may require the user disable any on-board 5785 cards in the system BIOS.
scsi-target-utils now features iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER), which is based on the Linux
T arget (tgt) framework. iSER is included in this release as a T echnology Preview, and provides
capabilities for both single and multiple portals on different subnets. Note, however, that there are
known bugs with using multiple portals on the same subnet.
T o set up an iSER target component, install the scsi-target-utils and libibverbs-devel
packages. T he corresponding library package for your system's Infiniband hardware is also required.
For example, in HCAs that use the cxgb3 driver the libcxgb3 package is needed, and for HCAs
using the m thca driver the libm thca package is need.
T he MPT Fusion driver has been updated to version 3.04.06, providing the following bugfixes and
enhancements:
Previously, the MPT Fusion driver always allocated I/O resources, even if they were not required,
6
1. Release Notes Updates
which may have caused issues in low resource environments. With this update, the driver now
uses the pci_enable_device_mem and pci_enable_device functions to differentiate the resource
allocations.
Previously, the kernel would panic when the mptsas and mptcl modules were loaded in parallel.
With this update, this issue has been resolved.
Previously, system power state changes (such as hibernation and standby) were not functioning
correctly with 106XE controllers. With this update, the driver has been modified to free and
allocate resources in power management entry points.
1.4. Virtualization
Ein Fehler im IDE/AT A T reiberstapel, der ein kernel-xen verwendendes Systemvom Booten in die
kdum p-Umgebung hindern konnte, wurde jetzt behoben. In früheren Releases trat dieser auf, wenn
das System auf eine Kernel Panik traf während das IDE-Gerät I/O durchführte und das IDE-Gerät
durch einen Gerätetreiber gesteuert wurde, bei dem es sich nicht um libata handelte.
A softlockup may have occurred when creating a guest with a large amount of memory.
Consequently, a call trace of the error was displayed on both the dom0 and the other guest. In this
update, this issue has been resolved.
On systems with large amounts of memory (ie 256GB or more), setting up the dom0 could exhaust
the hypervisor memory heap. T o work around this, the xenheap and dom0_size command line
arguments had to be set to valid values for the system. In this update, the hypervisor has been
updated to automatically set these values to a default of 32GB, which resolves this issue.
Due to technical problems with passing T X checksum offload information between paravirtual
domains, the use of T X checksum offload in conjunction with NAT for traffic originating from another
domain is not supported. T X checksum offload can be used together with NAT as long as the NAT
rule is applied in the domain where the traffic originates.
Note that this also applies to fully virtualised domains using paravirtual network drivers. Fully
virtualised domains using fully virtualised drivers are not affected as they do not support T X
checksum offload at all.
1.5. Known Issues
Previous versions of the 5.3 Release Notes stated that the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM unit on Dell
PowerEdge R905 servers does not work with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. T his note was included by
error, and does not apply to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3.
kdump now serializes drive creation registration with the rest of the kdump process. Consequently,
kdump may hang waiting for IDE drives to be initialized. In these cases, it is recommended that IDE
disks not be used with kdump.
Improvements have been made to the 'nv' driver, enhancing suspend and resume support on some
systems equipped with nVidia GeForce 8000 and 9000 series devices. Due to technical limitations,
this will not enable suspend/resume on all hardware.
pirut sorts some package lists using the textual representation of a package, which is inconsistent
with the textual representation method used in yum. As such, some package lists (e.g. Optional
Packages list) in pirut may not display names in alphabetical order.
T he Hypervisor outputs messages regarding attempts by any guest to write to an MSR. Such
messages contain the statement Dom ain attem pted WRMSR. T hese messages can be safely
ignored; furthermore, they are rate limited and should pose no performance risk.
When upgrading from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Workstation to 5 Server, OpenOffice will no
longer work correctly with SELinux. T his is because the Red Hat Enterprise Linux version of
OpenOffice is built using an incorrect library. As a result, SELinux will prevent OpenOffice from
accessing any shared libraries, causing OpenOffice to fail.
7
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
T o work around this, update the SELinux context to allow OpenOffice to access shared libraries. T o
do so, run the following commands:
sem anage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/ooo-1.1(/.* )?'
sem anage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib64 /ooo-1.1(/.* )?'
restorecon -Rv /usr/lib/ooo-1.19
restorecon -Rv /usr/lib64 /ooo-1.19
Alternatively, you can also upgrade your OpenOffice to a correct version compatible with SELinux in
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. You can do this by subscribing to the "Productivity App" child channel in
Red Hat Network and running the following command:
yum install openoffice{base,calc,draw,em ailm erge,graphicfilter,headless,im press,javafilter,m at
h,pyuno,writer,xsltfilter}
If jumbo frames are enabled on your system, a kernel panic will occur if you attempt to unload the
bnx2 module.
Red Hat advises that you avoid removing a block device from a guest while the device is in use.
Doing so causes Xend to lose domain information for the guest.
Accessing the right-click menu of the NetworkManager GNOME applet may cause the GNOME
Keyring Unlock dialog to appear. When this occurs, no XII applications can receive keyboard or
mouse input.
T o recover from this, switch to a virtual terminal using Ctrl+Alt+F1. Log in as the affected user (or
root) and run killall -9 nm -applet. T hen, switch back to X11 using Ctrl+Alt+F7. Your
system should be able to receive keyboard and mouse input, although Red Hat recommends that you
logout and login again to allow the system to fully recover.
On Altix systems with an AT I FireMV graphics adapter, the GUI console may not display on one of the
VGA connectors. T o workaround this issue, switch to using the other VGA connector on the dongle.
It has been determined that 1024 byte objects in kernel slab may be lost when a call to pipe() fails.
T he problem occurs because pipe() allocates pipe files, and then tries to get free file descriptors for
them. If the process is out of file descriptors, pipe() fails, but it does not clean up properly. A fix for
this problem is planned for a forthcoming 5.3 kernel update.
T o workaround this issue, ensure that the process calling do_pipe has adequate file descriptors
allocated.
T his issue has been observed with multipathd in particular. T o avoid the problem with multipathd,
calculate the number of file descriptors (FDs) required using the formula: "FDs = Number of Paths +
32". If the result is greater than the default value of 1024, then the max_fds value in the defaults
section of multipath.conf should be set to the previously calculated value. For example, if there are
255 LUNs with 8 paths each, the line to be added to the defaults section of multipath.conf would be:
max_fds
2072
T he libcm piutil-devel package depends on tog-pegasus-devel, which for the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Desktop product is only available from the Workstation option. T herefore, any
attempt to install the libcm piutil-devel package on a system that does not have a Subscription
including the Workstation option or is not subscribed to the Workstation channel on the Red Hat
Network, will fail with an unresolved dependency error.
It is possible in rare circumstances, for m akedum pfile to produce erroneous results but not have
them reported. T his is due to the fact that m akedum pfile processes its output data through a
pipeline consisting of several stages. If m akedum pfile fails, the other stages will still succeed,
effectively masking the failure. Should a vmcore appear corrupt, and makedumpfile is in use, it is
recommended that the core be recorded without makedumpfile and a bug be reported.

1. Release Notes Updates
An issue may be encountered when using system-config-cluster to configure a Postgres 8
resource agent, resulting in the postgresql service failing to start. T o include a Postgres resource
agent in your cluster, please check the man page for the agent, and edit the cluster.conf file in
an editor, then update the cluster with the new configuration file using the appropriate cman_tool
command.
Due to outstanding driver issues with hardware encryption acceleration, users of Intel WiFi Link 4965,
5100, 5150, 5300, and 5350 wireless cards are advised to disable hardware accelerated encryption
using module parameters. Failure to do so may result in the inability to connect to Wired Equivalent
Privacy (WEP) protected wireless networks after connecting to WiFi Protected Access (WPA)
protected wireless networks.
T o do so, add the following options to /etc/m odprobe.conf:
alias wlan0 iwlagn
options iwlagn swcrypto50=1 swcrypto=1
(where wlan0 is the default interface name of the first Intel WiFi Link device)
kdump now restarts when CPUs or DIMMs are hot-added to a system. If multiple items are added at
the same time, several sequential restarts may be encountered. T his behavior is intentional, as it
minimizes the time-frame where a crash may occur while memory or processors are not being
tracked by kdump.
1.6. Technology Previews
Software based Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
T he Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) driver (fcoe.ko), along with libfc, provides the ability to
run FCoE over a standard Ethernet card. T his capability is provided as a technical preview in
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3.
T o enable this feature, you must login by writing the network interface name to the
/sys/m odule/fcoe/param eters/create file, for example:
echo eth6 > /sys/module/fcoe/parameters/create
T o logout, write the network interface name to the
/sys/m odule/fcoe/param eters/destroy file, for example:
echo eth6 > /sys/module/fcoe/parameters/destroy
For further information on software based FCoE refer to: http://www.openfcoe.org/openfc/wiki/index.php/FCoE_Initiator_Quickstart.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 bietet vollständigen Support für FCoE auf drei spezialisierten
Hardware Implementierungen. Diese sind: Cisco fnic-T reiber, der Emulex lpfc-T reiber und
der Qlogic qla2xx-T reiber.
iSER Support
iSER support, allowing for block storage transfer across a network, has been added to the
scsi-target-utils package as a T echnology Preview. In this release, single portal and
multiple portals on different subnets are supported. T here are known bugs when using multiple
portals on the same subnet.
T o set up the iSER target component install the scsi-target-utils and libibverbs-devel RPM. T he
library package for the InfiniBand hardware that is being used is also required. For example:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
host channel adapters that use the cxgb3 driver the libcxgb3 package is needed, and for
host channel adapters using the m thca driver the libm thca package is needed.
T here is also a known issue relating to connection timeouts in some situations. Refer to Red
Hat Bugzilla #470627 for more information on this issue.
2. Installation-Related Notes
T his section includes information specific to Anaconda and the installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5.3.
Red Hat Network can install the new and changed packages and upgrade an existing Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 system. Alternatively, Anaconda can upgrade an existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
system or perform a fresh installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3.
Note: upgrading from beta releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 to this GA release is not supported.
Further, although Anaconda provides an option for upgrading from earlier major versions of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3, Red Hat does not currently support this. More
generally, Red Hat does not support in-place upgrades between any major versions of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. (A major version is denoted by a whole number version change. For example, Red Hat
Enteprise Linux 4 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are both major versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.)
In-place upgrades across major releases do not preserve all system settings, services or custom
configurations. Consequently, Red Hat strongly recommends fresh installations when upgrading from
one major version to another.
2.1. All Architectures
Die T ext Mode-Installation von Anaconda bietet nun die Möglichkeit, zu Virtual Network Computing
(VNC) zu wechseln, um die Installation abzuschließen.
Das Erstellen oder Benutzen von verschlüsselte Platten im Software-RAID-Verbund (d.h. software
RAID Partitionen) wird nicht unterstützt. Das Erstellen von verschlüsselten Software RAID Arrays
(d.h. /dev/m d0) wird hingegen unterstützt.
T he NFS default for RHEL5 is "locking". T herefore, to mount nfs shares from the %post section of
anaconda, use the m ount -o nolock,udp command to start the locking daemon before using nfs
to mount shares.
Bei der Installation von CD-ROM oder DVD-ROM auf einem System mit einem iBFT -konfigurierten
Netzwerkgerät, bindet Anaconda keine iBFT -konfigurierten Speichergeräte ein, bis das Netzwerk
konfiguriert ist. Um das Netzwerk für die Installation zu aktivieren, verwenden Sie den Befehl linux
updates=http://[any] am Installations-Boot-Prompt. Beachten Sie, dass [any] mit einer
beliebigen URL ersetzt werden kann.
Falls Ihr System eine statische IP-Konfiguration benötigt, verwenden Sie den Befehl linux
updates=http://[any] ip=[IP address] netm ask=[netmask] dns=[dns].
Verwenden Sie bei der Installation von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 auf einem voll virtualisierten
Gast nicht den kernel-xen-Kernel. Das Verwenden dieses Kernels auf voll virtualisierten Gästen
kann dazu führen, dass Ihr System hängenbleibt.
Falls Sie bei der Installation von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 eine Installationsnummer verwenden,
stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie die Paketgruppe Virtualization während der Installation
deselektieren. Die Paketgruppe Virtualization installiert den kernel-xen-Kernel.
10
2. Installation-Related Notes
Beachten Sie, dass paravirtualisierte Gäste von diesem Problem nicht betroffen sind.
Paravirtualisierte Gäste verwenden immer den kernel-xen-Kernel.
Wenn Sie bei der Aktualisierung von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 auf 5.2 den virtualisierten Kernel
verwenden, müssen Sie nach Abschluß der Aktualisierung neu starten. Sie sollten dann das System
booten und dabei den aktualisierten virtualisierten Kernel verwenden.
Die Hypervisoren von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 und 5.2 sind nicht ABI-kompatibel. Falls Sie das
System nach der Aktualisierung unter Verwendung des aktualisierten virtualisierten Kernels nicht
neu starten, entsprechen die aktualisierten Virtualisierungs-RPMs nicht dem laufenden Kernel.
Bei der Aktualisierung von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6 auf Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1 oder später
kann gcc4 dazu führen, dass die Aktualisierung scheitert. Aus diesem Grund sollten Sie das Paket
gcc4 vor der Aktualisierung manuell entfernen.
Das firstboot Sprach-Plugin wurde entfernt, da es das System bei der Auswahl einer neuen
Sprache nicht ordnungsgemäß und vollständig neu konfiguriert.
Bei der Bereitstellung (?) von Gästen während der Installation, steht die RHN tools for guests
Option nicht zur Verfügung. Für diesen Fall benötigt das System eine zusätzliche Berechtigung (?),
unabhängig von der für dom 0 genutzten Berechtigung (?).
Um den Verbrauch (?) von zusätzlichen Berechtigungen für Gäste zu verhindern, installieren Sie das
rhn-virtualization-com m on-Paket manuell, bevor Sie versuchen, das System beim Red Hat
Network anzumelden.
Das Installieren von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 auf einem System mit mehreren
Netzwerkschnittstellen und manuell eingestellten IPv6 Adressen kann zu einer teilweise fehlerhaften
Netzwerk-Einrichtung führen. Falls dies auftritt, werden Ihre IPv6 Adressen auf dem installierten
System nicht sichtbar sein.
Für eine provisorische Lösung setzen Sie NET WORKING_IPV6 auf yes in
/etc/sysconfig/network. Anschließend starten Sie Ihre Netzwerkverbindungen mit dem Befehl
service network restart neu.
Falls auf Ihrem System yum -rhn-plugin-0.5.2-5.el5_1.2 (oder eine frühere Version)
installiert ist, wird Ihnen eine Aktualisierung auf Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 mit dem Befehl yum
update nicht möglich sein. Um dies zu umgehen, aktualisieren Sie Ihr yum -rhn-plugin auf die
neueste Version (per yum update yum -rhn-plugin), bevor Sie den Befehl yum update
ausführen.
Bislang konnte anaconda nicht auf mehr als 8 SmartArray Kontroller zugreifen. In dieser
Aktualisierung wurde das Problem nun behoben.
Ein T reiber-Datenträger, bereitgestellt vom OEM, ist eine einzelne Image-Datei (*.im g), welche
eventuell mehrere T reiberpakete und Kernel-Module enthält. Diese T reiber werden während der
Installation verwendet, um Hardware zu unterstützen, die andernfalls nicht von Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5 erkannt werden würden. Sind die T reiberpakete und Kernel-Module erst einmal auf dem
System installiert, werden sie in der ursprünglichen RAM-Disk (initrd) abgelegt, so dass sie beim
Systemstart geladen werden.
Mit dieser Aktualisierung erkennt die Installation nun automatisch das Vorhandensein eines T reiberDatenträgers (anhand der Dateisystem-Kennung), und verwendet somit den Inhalt des Datenträgers
während der Installation. Dieses Verhalten wird in der Befehlszeile der Installation gesteuert durch
die Option dlabel=on, welche die automatische Suche aktiviert. dlabel=on ist die
Standardeinstellung für diese Version.
Alle Blockgeräte mit der Dateisystem-Kennung OEMDRV werden untersucht und gefundene T reiber in
der Reihenfolge des Antreffens geladen.
Vorhandene, verschlüsselte Blockgeräte, die vfat-Dateisysteme enthalten, werden als T yp
foreign in der Partitionierungs-Schnittstelle angezeigt werden. Aus diesem Grund werden diese
Geräte beim Systemstart nicht automatisch eingehängt. Um zu gewährleisten, dass diese Geräte
11
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
automatisch eingehängt werden, ergänzen Sie einen entsprechenden Eintrag in /etc/fstab. Für
weitere Informationen zur Durchführung, werfen Sie bitte einen Blick auf m an fstab.
2.2. PowerPC Architectures
T he minimum RAM required to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 is 1GB; the recommended RAM is
2GB. If a machine has less than 1GB RAM, the installation process may hang.
Desweiteren treten bei PowerPC-Rechnern mit nur 1GB Arbeitsspeicher Leistungsprobleme bei
bestimmten RAM-intensiven Auslastungen auf. Damit auf einem Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 System
RAM-intensive Prozesse optimal ausgeführt werden, sollte der Rechner mit 4GB Arbeitsspeicher
ausgestattet sein. So wird gewährleistet, dass das System dieselbe Anzahl an physischen
Seitenrahmen besitzt, wie das auf den PowerPC-Rechnern (die 512MB RAM verwenden), die Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5 oder eine frühere Version installiert haben.
2.3. s390x Architectures
anaconda unterstützt nun beide Ports auf CHPID für OSA Express3 cards. Der Installer fordert die
Angabe der Portnummer während der ersten Phase der Installation. Der angegebene Wert für den
Port wirkt sich auch auf das installierte Skript zur Initialisierung der Netzwerkschnittstelle aus. Wird
der Port 1 ausgewählt, wird der Wert portno=1 zu den OPT IONS Parametern der ifcfg-eth* Datei hinzugefügt.
Anmerkung
Bei der Installation unter z/VM können Sie entweder PORT NO=0 (für Port 0), oder PORT NO=1
(für Port 1) zu der CMS Konfigurationsdatei hinzufügen, um eine Abfrage des Modus zu
verhindern.
Die Installation auf einem Rechner mit vorhandenen Linux- oder Nicht-Linux-Dateisystemen auf DASD
Blockgeräten kann zum Anhalten des Installers führen. Falls dies passiert, ist es nötig, alle
vorhandenen Partitionen auf den DASD Geräten, die Sie verwenden wollen, vollständig zu löschen
und den Installer neu zu starten.
2.4. ia64 Architecture
If your system only has 512MB of RAM, attempting to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 may fail. T o
prevent this, perform a base installation first and install all other packages after the installation
finishes.
Using yum to install packages from the 32-bit Com patibility Layer disc may fail. If it does, it
is because the Red Hat package signing key was not imported into the RPM database. T his happens
if you have not yet connected to Red Hat Network and obtained updates. T o import the key manually,
run the following command as root:
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
Sobald der Red Hat GPG-Schlüssel importiert wurde, können Sie nun yum für die Installation von
Paketen vom 32-bit Com patibility Layer verwenden.
Beachten Sie, dass es ratsam ist, yum anstelle von rpm zu verwenden, falls Sie von diesem
Datenträger installieren, um so zu gewährleisten, dass Abhängigkeiten des Basis-Betriebssystems
während der Installation berücksichtigt werden.

3. Feature Updates
Verschlüsselung von Blockgeräten
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 unterstützt die Verschlüsselung von Blockgeräten unter
Verwendung der Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS) Spezifikationen. Die Verschlüsselung eines
Gerätes schützt alle auf dem Blockgerät enthaltenen Daten gegen unbefugten Z ugriff, selbst
wenn das Gerät physikalisch vom System getrennt wird. Um auf den Inhalt eines
verschlüsselten Gerätes zugreifen zu können, muss der Benutzer ein Passwort oder einen
Schlüssel als Authentifikation eingeben.
Für weitere Information über das Verschlüsseln von Platten, werfen Sie bitte einen Blick auf
Kapitel 28 des Red Hat Enterprise Linux Installationshandbuchs unter: http://redhat.com/docs/
mac80211 802.11a/b/g WiFi Protokollstapel (mac80211)
Der mac80211-Stapel (früher als devicescape/d80211-Stapel bekannt) ist in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.3 nun ein unterstütztes Feature. Er aktiviert den iwlwifi 4 965GN
Wireless-T reiber für Intel Wifi Link 4965 Hardware. Dieser Stapel ermöglicht bestimmten
Wireless-Geräten, sich mit einem beliebigen WiFi-Netzwerk zu verbinden.
Obwohl die mac80211 Komponente in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 unterstützt wird, sind die
Symbole jedoch nicht in der Symbol-Whitelist für den Kernel enthalten.
Global File System 2 (GFS2)
GFS2 stellt eine inkrementelle Verbesserung von GFS dar. Diese Aktualisierung setzt einige
wichtige Verbesserung um, die eine Änderung des On-Disk-Dateisystem-Formats erfordern.
GFS-Dateisysteme können mit dem Dienstprogramm gfs2_convert in GFS2 konvertiert
werden, welches die Metadaten eines GFS-Dateisystems entsprechend aktualisiert.
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 wurde GFS2 als Kernel-Modul zu T estzwecken zur Verfügung
gestellt. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 ist GFS2 nun T eil des Kernel-Pakets. Falls Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.2 GFS2 Kernel-Module bereits installiert sind, müssen diese entfernt werden,
um die Verwendung von GFS2 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 zu ermöglichen.
Verbesserungen der Unterstützung von T reiber-Datenträgern
Ein T reiber-Datenträger, bereitgestellt vom OEM, ist eine einzelne Image-Datei (* .im g), welche
eventuell mehrere T reiber-RPMs und Kernel-Module enthält. Diese T reiber werden während
der Installation verwendet, um andernfalls nicht erkannte Hardware zu unterstützen. Die RPMs
werden auf dem System installiert und in die initrd abgelegt, so dass sie beim Neustart des
Rechners unterstützt werden.
Bei Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 kann die Installation anhand der Dateisystem-Kennung
automatisch das Vorhandensein eines T reiber-Datenträgers erkennen, und dessen Inhalt
während der Installation verwenden. Dieses Verhalten wird in der Befehlszeile der Installation
gesteuert durch die Option dlabel=on, welche die automatische Suche aktiviert. Alle
Blockgeräte mit der Dateisystem-Kennung OEMDRV werden untersucht und gefundene T reiber
in der Reihenfolge des Antreffens geladen.
iSCSI Boot Firmware T able
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 unterstützt nun vollständig die iSCSI Boot Firmware Table (iBFT),
was das Starten von iSCSI Geräten ermöglicht. Diese Unterstützung erfordert, dass die iSCSI
Platten (Knoten) nicht mehr für einen automatischen Start markiert sind. Das installierte System
13
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
wird nicht mehr automatisch verbinden und auf iSCSI Platten einloggen beim Wechsel zum
Runlevel 3 oder 5.
iSCSI wird normalerweise für das Root Dateisystem verwendet. In diesem Fall ist diese
Änderung unerheblich, denn initrd wird sich mit den nötigen iSCSI Platten verbinden und
einloggen, noch bevor ein Wechsel auf Runlevel erfolgt.
Falls jedoch iSCSI Platten bei Nicht-Root Verzeichnissen eingehängt werden müssen, z.B.
/hom e or /srv, dann wird sich diese Änderung auf Sie auswirken, denn das installierte System
wird sich nicht mehr automatisch verbinden und einloggen auf iSCSI Platten, die nicht für das
Root Dateisystem verwendet werden.
Das Verwenden von iSCSI Platten, welche an Nicht-Root Dateisysteme angehängt sind, ist zwar
noch immer möglich, erfordert aber eine der folgenden provisorischen Lösungen:
1. Installieren Sie das System, ohne dass iSCSI Platten an Nicht-Root Verzeichnisse
angehängt sind, und konfigurieren Sie später die erforderlichen Platten und AnhängePunkte (?)manuell.
2. Starten Sie das installierte System auf Runlevel 1, und markieren Sie alle iSCSI Platten,
die nicht für das Root Dateisystem zum automatischen Starten verwendet werden, indem
Sie folgenden Befehl einmal pro Platte ausführen:
iscsiadm -m node -T target-name -p ip:port -o update -n
node.startup -v autom atic
Rhythmbox
Der rhythmbox Audio Player wurde aktualisiert auf Version 0.11.6. Diese Aktualisierung bietet
die Möglichkeit, proprietäre GStreamer-Plugins zu verwenden.
lftp Aktualisierung
lftp wurde nun grundlegend aktualisiert auf Version 3.7.1. Dies führt zu einigen UpstreamFeature-Aktualisierungen und Bugfixes, einschließlich:
Eine Sicherheitslücke, die beim Interpretieren von m irror --script-generierten Skripten
mit lftp eine mögliche unauthorisierte Privileg-Eskalation verursachte, wurde nun
geschlossen.
Das Verwenden von lftp mit der Option -c führt nicht mehr zum Aufhängen von lftp.
lftp beschädigt keine Dateien mehr während eines T ransfers via sftp.
For more information on lftp updates applied in this release, refer to http://lftp.yar.ru/news.html.
T T Y Input Auditing
TTY Input Auditing wird nun unterstützt. Falls ein Prozess für T T Y Input Auditing vorgesehen
ist, werden Daten von T T Ys gelesen und überprüft. Dies wird auf den Audit Records
erscheinen als T ypT T Y.
Sie können das pam _tty_audit-Modul verwenden, um einen Prozess (samt Kindprozessen)
für T T Y Input Auditing zu kennzeichnen. Für eine Anleitung zur Durchführung, konsultieren Sie
die Handbuchseite via m an pam _tty_audit(8).
Die T T Y Audit Records enthalten die genauen T astenanschläge die vom überprüften Prozess
registriert wurden. Um das Auswerten der Daten zu vereinfachen, überprüft bash die genaue
14
3. Feature Updates
Befehlszeile unter Verwendung des Record-T yps USER_T T Y.
T he "T T Y" audit records contain all data read by audited processes from the T T Y. T his
includes data inserted into the input stream by the T IOCST I ioctl system call.
SystemT ap Aktualisierung
SystemT ap wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf Version 0.7.2. Diese Aktualisierung führt
mehrere kleine Verbesserungen ein, sowie auch einige bedeutende Features. Diese neuen
Features beinhalten:
SystemT ap unterstützt nun das symbolische Überprüfen auf x86, x86-64 und PowerPC
Architekturen. Dies ermöglicht es SystemT ap Scripts, Überprüfungsprozesse in User Space
Anwendungen sowie in gemeinsam genutzten Bibliotheken zu platzieren. Infolgedessen
kann SystemT ap nun das gleiche Level an Debugger Überprüfung bei einigen User Space
Anwendungen leisten, wie auch bei der Kernel Überprüfung.
Wenn beispielsweise coreutils-debuginfo installiert ist, können Sie einen Call Graph
ausgeben des Befehls ls unter Verwendung von
/usr/share/doc/system tap-version/exam ples/general/callgraph.stp, wie
in:
stap para-callgraph.stp 'process("ls").function("* ")' -c 'ls -l'
Um die Wahrscheinlichkeit einer unentdeckten Abweichung zwischen der Binärdatei und
deren Debuginfo RPMs zu verringern, empfiehlt Red Hat die
SYST EMT AP_DEBUGINFO_PAT H Umgebungsvariable auf den Wert
+:.debug:/usr/lib/debug:build zu setzen.
SystemT ap's support for symbolic probes also extends to markers placed into the kernel of
this release. T o use these markers, load the kernel-trace kernel module in
/etc/rc.local (using m odprobe kernel-trace).
SystemT ap unterstützt auch entfernte (oder remote) Kompilierungsdienste. Dies ermöglicht
es einem einzigen Computer im Netzwerk, als ein Debuginfo/Compiler Server für lokale
SystemT ap Clients zu fungieren. Die Clients lokalisieren automatisch den Server mithilfe
von mDNS (avahi), und benötigen nur die system tap-client- und system tapruntim e-Pakete zum funktionieren.
Z ur Z eit verwendet dieses Feature keine Sicherheitsmechanismen wie z.B.
Verschlüsselung. Daher ist es ratsam, entfernte (oder remote) Kompilierungsdienste nur
innerhalb von vertrauenswürdigen Netzwerken zu benutzen. Bitte konsultieren Sie die
Handbuchseite via m an stap-server für weitere Informationen.
Die Kernel-Aktualisierung für diese Version enthält eine Kernel-API-Erweiterung, die das
Beenden von SystemT ap-Scripts deutlich verbessert. Diese zusätzliche Kernel-APIErweiterung beseitigt die unnötige Synchronisation zwischen einzelne Operationen zur
Entfernung von Überprüfungsprozessen. Demzufolge werden SystemT ab Scripts mit
hunderten von Kernel Überprüfungsprozessen nun deutlich schneller abgearbeitet.
Dies ist insbesondere nützlich für Administratoren, die Scripts mit Überprüfungsprozessen
verwenden, welche Wildcards enthalten und daher zahlreiche Kernel Ereignisse festhalten,
wie z.B probe syscall.* {}.
Für eine umfassende Liste von SystemT ap Aktualisierungen in dieser Version, besuchen Sie
bitte die folgende URL:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Cluster Manager Aktualisierung
Das Cluster Manager Dienstprogramm (cman) wurde aktualisiert auf Version 2.0.97. Diese
Aktualisierung enthält mehrere Bugfixes und Verbesserungen, insbesondere:
cman verwendet nun die folgenden Firmware Versionen:APC AOS v3.5.7 und APC rpdu
v3.5.6. Das behebt einen Fehler, der APC 7901 daran hinderte, das "Simple Network
Management Protocol" (SNMP) ordnungsgemäß anzuwenden.
fence_drac, fence_ilo, fence_egenera, und fence_bladecenter-Agenten
unterstützen nun ssh.
fence_xvm d-Schlüsseldateien können nun ohne Neustart neu geladen werden.
Eine einzige Methode zur Abgrenzung kann nun bis zu 8 Geräte zur Abgrenzung
unterstützen.
RPM Aktualisierung
Der RedHat Package Manager (RPM) wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf die Fedora 9
Upstream Version. rpm bietet nun sekundäre, architekturspezifische Makro-Dateien auf MultiArch Systemen. Außerdem entspricht rpm nun allen Z ertifizierungs-Kriterien für die Aufnahme
in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Diese Aktualisierung enthält zudem mehrere Upstream Verbesserungen und Bugfixes für rpm,
einschließlich:
rpm generiert keine unnötigen .rpm new und .rpm save-Dateien mehr auf Multi-ArchSystemen.
Ein Fehler in der rpm giNext() Funktion von rpm verhinderte ordnungsgemäße
Fehlerberichte. In dieser Aktualisierung wird nun die korrekte Semantik für Fehlerberichte
angewendet und dadurch sichergestellt, dass rpm in jedem Fall den richtigen Exit Code
wiedergibt.
Open Fabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) / opensm
opensm wurde aktualisiert auf die Upstream Version 3.2, einschließlich einer kleineren
Änderung an der opensm Programmbibliothek API.
Das Format der opensm .conf-Datei wurde geändert. Falls Sie individuelle Modifikationen
an Ihrem vorhandenen opensm .conf vorgenommen hatten, wird RPM automatisch die
neue opensm .conf-Datei als /etc/ofed/opensm .conf.rpm new installieren. Sie
müssen daher Ihre Modifikationen in diese Datei migrieren, und anschließend die
vorhandene opensm.conf-Datei mit dem Ergebnis ersetzen.
Red Hat verfolgt die Code-Basis der Upstream Open Fabrics Enterprise Distribution
(OFED), um ein möglichst hohes Level an Funktionalität für diese noch in der Entwicklung
begriffende T echnologie zu bieten. Infolgedessen kann Red Hat die API/ABI-Kompatibilität
nur über Nebenversionen erhalten, in demselben Umfang wie auch das Upstream Projekt.
Dies stellt eine Ausnahme dar von der allgemeinen Entwicklungspraktik von Red Hat
Enterprise Linux.
Aus diesem Grund können Applikationen, die über den OFED Stapel (siehe Liste unten)
hinaus gebaut wurden, ggf. Rekompilation oder sogar Änderungen auf Ebene des
Quellcodes erfordern, wenn von einer Nebenversion von Red Hat Enterprise Linux auf eine
neuere gewechselt wird.
Dies ist im Allgemeinen nicht erforderlich für andere Applikationen, die auf dem Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Stapel gebaut wurden. Die betroffenen Komponenten sind:

Net-SNMP Aktualisierung
Net-SNMP has been re-based to upstream version 5.3.2.2. T his update adds Stream Control
T ransmission Protocol (SCT P) support (as per RFC 3873, http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3873.txt) and
introduces two new configuration options (to be used in /etc/snm pd.conf):
dontLogT CPWrappersConnects — unterdrückt das Protokollieren von
Verbindungsversuchen.
v1trapaddress — enables administrators to set an agent's IP address inside outgoing
17
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
SNMP traps.
Diese Aktualisierung setzt ebenfalls einige von Upstream gelieferte Verbesserungen um,
einschließlich:
Der snm pd-Daemon funktioniert nun ordnungsgemäß auf Systemen mit mehr als 255
Netzwerkschnittstellen. Außerdem gibt snm pd nun einen Fehler aus, wenn es konfiguriert
wird, auf einen Port höher als 65535 zu horchen.
Eine Race Condition, die dazu führte, dass der snm pd-Daemon beim Lesen von /proc
Dateideskriptoren durchsickern ließ, wurde nun behoben.
Der snm pd-Daemon meldet nun ordnugnsgemäß hrProcessorLoad Objekt ID's (OID),
selbst auf Multi-CPU Hardware. Beachten Sie jedoch, dass es ab dem Start des Daemons
ungefähr eine Minute dauert, die OID-Werte zu berechnen.
Das net-snm p-devel-Paket ist nun abhängig vom lm _sensors-devel-Paket.
OpenSSL Aktualisierung für FIPS Z ertifikation
Die openssl-Pakete aktualisieren die OpenSSL-Bibliothek auf eine neuere Upstream Version,
welche zur Z eit den "Federal Information Processing Standards" (FIPS-140-2) Validierungs
Prozess durchläuft. Der FIPS-Modus ist standardmäßig aktiviert, um die OpenSSL-Bibliothek
Feature Parität sowie ABI Kompatibilität zu vorhergehenden Versionen der openssl-Pakete in
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 zu gewährleisten.
Diese Aktualisierung wendet außerdem die folgenden Upstream Fixes an:
Standardmäßig wird die zlib-Komprimierung für SSL und T LS Verbindungen verwendet.
Auf IBM System z Architekturen mit "Central Processor Assist for Cryptographic Function"
(CPACF) wurde die Komprimierung zu einem großem T eil der CPU-Auslastung, und die
Gesamtleistung wurde bestimmt durch die Geschwindigkeit der Komprimierung (nicht durch
die Geschwindigkeit der Verschlüsselung). Wenn die Komprimierung deaktiviert wird, ist die
Gesamtleistung sehr viel höher. In diesen aktualisierten Paketen kann die zlibKomprimierung für SSL und T LS Verbindungen deaktiviert werden mithilfe der
OPENSSL_NO_DEFAULT _ZLIB Umgebungsvariablen. Für T LS Verbindungen über ein
langsames Netzwerk ist es besser, die Komprimierung aktiviert zu lassen, so dass die zu
transferierende Datenmenge geringer ist.
Beim Verwenden des openssl-Befehls mit den s_client und s_server Optionen wurde
die Standard CA Z ertifikat-Datei (/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt) nicht gelesen.
Dies führte zum Scheitern der Verifizierung von Z ertifikaten. Damit Z ertifikate die
Verifizierung bestehen, musste die -CAfile /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
Option angewendet werden. In diesen aktualisierten Paketen wird die Standard CA
Z ertifikat-Datei nun gelesen, und muss nicht mehr mit der -CAfile Option manuell
angegeben werden.
yum Aktualisierung
yum wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf die Upstream Version 3.2.18. Diese Aktualisierung
verbessert die Geschwindigkeit, mit der yum ausgeführt wird, wodurch Probleme aufgrund der
ständig wachsenden Anzahl von Paketen in jeder Nebenversion gemindert werden. Z udem
führt diese Aktualisierung auch den reinstall-Befehl ein, verbessert die Schnittstelle für mehrere
Befehle, und enthält einige Bugfixes, einschließlich:
Jeglicher yum-Befehlt scheiterte bislang, wenn die -c-Option benutzt wurde zum Angeben
einer Konfigurations-Datei, die sich an einer Web-Adresse (http) befand. Dieser Fehler
18
3. Feature Updates
wurde nun behoben.
Eine checkSignal()-Funktion in yum rief eine fehlerhafte Beenden-Funktion auf; daher
resultierte ein Beenden von yum stattdessen in einem T raceback. In dieser Version beendet
yum nun ordnungsgemäß.
Flash-Plugin Aktualisierung
Das flash-plugin-Paket wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf die Version 10.0.12.36. Diese
Aktualisierung wendet mehrere Sicherheitsfixes an, die in einer vorhergehenden flashplugin ASYNC Aktualisierung enthalten waren. Außerdem enthält dieses aktualisierte Plugin
den Adobe Flash Player 10, der seinerseits folgende Bugfixes und Feature-Verbesserungen
enthält:
Verbesserte Stabilität auf der Linux Plattform durch die Beseitigung einer Race Condition in
der Audio-Ausgabe.
Neue Unterstützung für individuell angepasste Filter und Effekte, native 3D
T ransformationen und Animationen, erweiterte Audio Verarbeitung, eine neue, flexiblere
T ext Engine, und PGU Hardware Beschleunigung.
Für weitere Informationen über diese Aktualisierung, lesen Sie bitte die Adobe Flash Player
10 Release Notes unter dem folgenden Link:
http://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/10/Flash_Player_10_Release_Not
es.pdf
gdb Aktualisierung
gdb wurde nun grundlegend aktualisiert auf Version 6.8. Dies wendet mehrere Upstream
Feature Aktualisierungen und Bugfixes an, insbesondere: Unterstützung für Haltepunkte in C++
Vorlagen, Konstruktoren und Inline-Funktionen.
For more information on gdb updates applied in this release, refer to http://sourceware.org/cgibin/cvsweb.cgi/src/gdb/NEWS?rev=1.259.2.1&cvsroot=src.
Instruction Based Sampling auf AMD Family10h Prozessoren
Unterstützung von Hardwareprofilen für AMD Family 10h Prozessoren wurde zu Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.3 hinzugefügt. Diese neuen AMD CPU's unterstützen "Instruction Based
Sampling" (IBS). IBS-Unterstützung erfordert Änderungen am oProfile-T reiber, damit diese
Informationen gesammelt und die Model Specific Registers (MSRs) initialisiert werden, welche
mit diesen neuen Features zusammenhängen.
Diese Aktualisierung fügt die neuen IBS_FET CH und IBS_OP Profiling Samples zu den Puffern
pro CPU sowie den Ereignispuffern des oProfile-T reibers hinzu. Neue Kontrolleinträge wurden
ebenfalls hinzugefügt zu /dev/oprofile, um IBS Sampling zu steuern. Diese Änderungen
sind rückwärtskompatibel mit vorhergehenden nur-PMC Versionen des T reibers, und ein
separates Patch ist verfügbar für oProfile 0.9.3, um diese neuen Daten zu nutzen.
Für mehr Informationen über IBS, werfen Sie bitte einen Blick auf: Instruction-Based Sampling: A
New Performance Analysis T echnique for AMD Family 10h Processors, November 19, 2007
Squid Aktualisierung
Squid wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf die letzte stabile Upstream Version (ST ABLE21).
Diese Aktualisierung behebt mehrere Fehler, einschließlich:
19
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Das Skript squid init gab stets fälschlicherweise den Exit Code 0 aus. Dieser Fehler ist
nun behoben, so dass Squid nun konform geht mit Linux Standard Base.
Das Verwenden der refresh_stale_hit-Direktive führt zu der Fehlermeldung Clock
going backwards in der squid-Protokolldatei.
Der squid Installationsprozess richtete den Besitzer des /usr/local/squid
Verzeichnisses nicht korrekt ein. In dieser Version ist nun der Benutzer squid der
standardmäßige Besitzer von /usr/local/squid.
Jedesmal wenn squid versucht, die Funktion hash_lookup() zu verwenden, kann es ggf.
abbrechen mit signal 6.
Das Verwenden von squid_unix_group könnte squid zum Absturz bringen.
Event Multi-Processing Model in Apache
httpd, das Apache HT T P Server Paket, beinhaltet nun das experimentelle event MultiProcessing Model (MPM). Dieses MPM verbessert die Leistung, indem es beim Arbeiten mit
Keepalive-Verbindungen fest zugeordnete T hreads verwendet.
Libgomp Aktualisierung
libgom p wurde grundlegend aktualisiert auf Version 4.3.2-7.el5. Diese Aktualisierung
verbessert die OpenMP-Leistung und unterstützt zusätzlich die OpenMP Version 3.0 bei der
Verwendung mit dem gcc4 3-Compiler.
iSCSI-Z iel Fähigkeiten
Die iSCSI-Z iel Fähigkeit, als T eil des Linux T arget (tgt) Frameworks, geht über von
T echnologievorschau zu voller Unterstützung in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3. Das Linux
T arget Framework ermöglicht einem System die Freigabe von Block-Level-SCSISpeichergeräten für andere Systeme, die einen SCSI Initiator besitzen. Diese Fähigkeit wird als
erstes als ein Linux-iSCSI-Z iel eingesetzt, so dass Speicher über ein Netzwerk für jeden
beliebigen iSCSI-Initiator bereitgestellt wird.
Um das iSCSI-Z iel einzurichten, installieren Sie das scsi-target-utils-RPM und befolgen die
Anweisungen in: /usr/share/doc/scsi-target-utils-[version]/README und
/usr/share/doc/scsi-target-utils-[version]/README.iscsi

Storage
3w-xxxx: T reiber für 3ware SAT A RAID Kontroller aktualisiert auf Version 1.26.03. Dies führt zu
einigen Upstream-Änderungen, insbesondere:
Fehler behoben, der zu Datenverlust führte beim Benutzen einer 3ware Karte der 7000er oder
8000er Serie in einem System mit mehr als 2GB RAM.
Anaconda bleibt in 64-bit Architekturen nicht mehr hängen beim Benutzen einer 3ware Karte der
8006er Serie in einem System mit mehr als 4GB RAM.
Der irq Handler wird nun freigegeben, wenn __tw_shutdown() ausgeführt wird. Dies verhindert
eine mögliche Nullzeiger-Dereferenz, falls ein Interrupt beim Herunterfahren gleichzeitig
verwendet wurde.
Das RCD-Bit zum zwischenspeichern der Mode Page ist nun aktiviert.
ioctl- und scsi-Resets sind nun in serielle Reihenfolge gebracht, so dass sie nicht mehr

5. Kernel-Related Notes
5.1. All Architectures
relayfs hatte bislang eine Größenbeschränkung des Puffers auf 64MB. In dieser Aktualisierung
wurde die Beschränkung des Speichers, welcher dem relayfs für "on-memory" Puffer zugewiesen
wird, auf 4095 MB erhöht. Dies erlaubt es SystemT ap und anderen T racing T ools, die relayfs
verwenden, mehr Ereignisse zu verfolgen.
Der T reiber für Dell Rem ote Access Controller 4 (DRAC4) war nicht vorhanden.
Infolgedessen wurden jegliche virtuellen Geräte des DRAC4 nicht vom Kernel erkannt. In dieser
Aktualisierung wurde nun das pata_sil680 Kernel-Modul hinzugefügt, welches die entsprechende
Unterstützung bietet und damit das Problem behebt.
Die Nachrichtenpuffer für die Relay-Schnittstelle wurden nur für bereits aktive CPUs zugewiesen,
wenn relay_open() aufgerufen wurde. Wenn eine inaktive CPU erst aktiviert wurde, nachdem
relay_open() bereits aufgerufen wurde, trat infolgedessen ein Kernel Panic auf. In dieser
Aktualisierung wird ein neuer Nachrichtenpuffer dynamisch zugewiesen, falls neue CPUs
hinzugefügt werden.
Der T reiber für 8250 basierte serielle Ports wurde aktualisiert, um nun DSR/DT R Hardware
Flusskontrolle zu unterstützen.
Unterstützung für Dell Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN)-Karten wurde zum Kernel hinzugefügt.
Folgende Geräte werden jetzt unterstützt:
Dell Wireless 5700 Mobile Broadband CDMA/EVDO Mini-Card
Dell Wireless 5500 Mobile Broadband HSDPA Mini-Card
Dell Wireless 5505 Mobile Broadband HSDPA Mini-Card
Dell Wireless 5700 Mobile Broadband CDMA/EVDO ExpressCard

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
das thinkpad_acpi Kernel-Modul wurde aktualisiert, um erweiterte Unterstützung zu bieten für
neuere T hinkpad Modelle.
Der Soft Lockup Detektor kann dahingehend konfiguriert werden, dass ein Kernel Panic ausgelöst
wird statt einer Warnmeldung. Dies ermöglicht es dem Benutzer, im Falle eines Soft Lockups einen
Crash Speicherauszug zu erstellen und zwecks Fehlersuche zu analysieren.
Um den Soft Lockup Detektor für die Auslösung eines Kernel Panics zu konfigurieren, setzen Sie den
Kernel Parameter soft_lockup auf 1. Dieser Parameter ist standardmäßig eingestellt auf 0.
oprofile erkannte Prozessoren nicht korrekt, welche auf der Next-Generation Intel
Microarchitektur (Nehalem) basieren. Infolgedessen konnte der Systemmonitor nicht verwendet
werden, und der Prozessor griff zurück auf den T imer Interrupt. Der Kernel wurde nun aktualisiert,
um dieses Problem zu beheben.
Dem Kernel wurde Unterstützung hinzugefügt für den CPU Power State, C3, auf den NextGeneration Intel Microarchitekturen (Nehalem). Die Möglichkeit, in den C3-Modus einzutreten (auch
bekannt als Schlafmodus), verbessert die Energieeffizienz des CPUs im Leerlauf.
Previously, the MAX_ARG_PAGES limit that is set in the kernel was too low, and may have resulted in
the following error:
execve: Argument list too long
In this update, this limit has been increased to 25 percent of the stack size, which resolves this
issue.
autofs4 Aktualisierungen wurden zurück portiert auf Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 von der Linux
Kernel Version 2.6.27.
Mit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 besteht nun die Möglichkeit, Speicherauszugdateien an ein
abgezweigtes Exemplar einer User Space-Applikation umzuleiten. Dies wird aktiviert, indem
|path/to/applicationin /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern platziert wird. Bei einem
Speicherauszug wird eine Kopie der angegebenen Anwendung ausgeführt, und der Speicherauszug
wird umgeleitet nach "stdin". Dies ermöglicht das Umleiten an ein verzweigtes Exemplar.
Die Datei /proc/cpuinfo zeigt nun die ID des Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controllers
(APIC) an, der von jedem einzelnen CPU verwendet wird.
Das Machine Check Exception (MCE) Kernel Subsystem wurde verbessert, um die für neuere
Systeme notwendigen, größeren Speicher-Konfigurationen zu unterstützen.
Der Mount-Befehl unterstützt nun die Kerberos Authentifizierung beim Anhängen eines Dateisystems
via Samba. Der sec=krb5 oder sec=krb5i Schalter erlaubt es dem Kernel, eine User Space
Anwendung aufzurufen (cifs.upcall), welche ein "SPNEGO" (Simple and Protected GSSAPI
Negotiation Mechanism) Sicherheits-"Blob" (Binary Large OBject) ausgibt. Der Kernel kann das BLOB
zur Authentifikation beim Server verwenden, und das entsprechende Dateisystem einhängen.
Falls Sie den Kernel Parameter kernel.unknown_nm i_panic auf einem System konfiguriert
haben, welches die IOAPIC NMI Watchdog Methode verwendet, könnte ein Kernel Panic auftreten.
Das rührt daher, dass der NMI Watchdog die Ursache des nicht-maskierbaren Hardwareinterrupts
(NMI) nicht sicher deaktivieren konnte.
In dieser Version wurde der NMI Watchdog Code dahingehend überarbeitet, so dass es Benutzern
nun möglich ist, die Ursache des NMIs sicher zu deaktivieren. Daher können Sie nun bedenkenlos
den Kernel Parameter kernel.unknown_nm i_panic konfigurieren auf Systemen, welche die
IOAPIC NMI Watchdog Methode verwenden.
5.2. x86 Architectures
Der powernowk8-T reiber führte keine ausreichende Prüfung der Anzahl der aktiven CPUs durch.
Infolgedessen wurde ggf. eine Kernel-Fehlermeldung "oops" beim Start des T reibers ausgegeben. In
24
5. Kernel-Related Notes
dieser Aktualisierung stellt der powernowk8-T reiber sicher, dass die Anzahl der unterstützten
CPUs (supported_cpus) der Anzahl der aktiven CPUs (num _online_cpus) entspricht. Dieser
Fehler ist damit behoben.
5.3. PowerPC Architectures
CPUFreq, das Kernel Subsystem, welches CPU-Frequenz und -Spannung skaliert, wurde
aktualisiert mit verbesserter Unterstützung von Z ell Prozessoren. Diese Aktualisierung implementiert
einen CPUFreq-Governor, der eine Synergistic Processing Unit (SPU) beherrscht, und damit die
Energieverwaltung der Z ell Prozessoren verbessert.
Error Detection and Correction (EDAC) wird nun unterstützt auf der Cell Broadband Engine
Architektur in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3. Um EDAC zu aktivieren, verwenden Sie folgenden Befehl:
m odprobe cell_edac
Um zu kontrollieren, ob dieses Modul Ihrem laufenden Kernel hinzugefügt wurde, überprüfen Sie
check /var/log/dmesg auf eine Ausgabe wie die Folgende:
EDAC MC: Ver: 2.0.1 Oct 4 2008
EDAC MC0: Giving out device to cell_edac MIC: DEV cbe-mic
EDAC MC1: Giving out device to cell_edac MIC: DEV cbe-mic
Falls korrigierbare Speicherfehler gefunden werden, wird die folgende Mitteilung auf der Konsole
ausgegeben:
EDAC MC0: CE page 0xeff, offset 0x5700, grain 0, syndrome 0x51, row 0, channel
0, label "":
Das Debugging mit Hardware Watchpoints unter Verwendung einer Variablen, welche gemeinsam
benutzt wurde von mehreren T hreads, führte beim GNU Debugger (GDB) dazu, dass unregelmäßig
T rigger-Ereignisse ausgelassen wurden. Der Kernel wurde aktualisiert, so dass GDB nun lückenlos
die Watchpoint-T rigger empfängt, wodurch die Z uverlässigkeit des Debuggings verbessert wurde.
5.4. x86_64 Architectures
kprobe-booster wird nun auf ia64 und x86_64 Architekturen unterstützt, was dem Benutzer
erlaubt, Kernel Ereignisse sehr viel schneller zu überprüfen. Dieses Feature verringert außerdem
den durch Überprüfungstools (d.h. SystemT ap und Kprobes) verursachten Overhead auf Servern,
die auf 64-bit Architekturen laufen.
Unterstützung für die Objekte _PT C (Processor T hrottling Control), _T SS (T hrottling Supported
States) und _T PC (T hrottling Present Capabilities) wurde dem Kernel hinzugefügt. Diese
Unterstützung, die T eil ist der Advance Configuration and Power Interface specification (ACPI), bietet
verbesserte Handhabung des Prozessor T hrottlings.
5.5. s390x Architectures
In zipl.conf, parameters enclosed with double quotes inside of single quotes (ie
param eters='vm halt="LOGOFF"') were being parsed incorrectly. Consequently, installing the
kernel-kdump package may have failed, resulting in the error:
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
T o resolve this issue, parameters should be enclosed with single quotes inside of double quotes (ie
param eters="vm halt='LOGOFF'")

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Anmerkung
Die Syntax-Struktur von einfachen Anführungszeichen innerhalb von doppelten
Anführungszeichen ist Standard in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
5.6. ia64 Architecture
Der Dual-Core Intel Itanium 2 Prozessor schrieb die Machine Check Architecture (MCA) Einträge
anders als vorhergehende Intel Itanium Prozessoren. Die Z iel-Identifier zur Überprüfung des
Z wischenspeichers und des Bus können nun unter Umständen anders sein. Der Kernel wurde
aktualisiert, um den richtigen Z iel-Identifier zu finden.
kprobe-booster wird nun auf ia64 und x86_64 Architekturen unterstützt, was dem Benutzer
erlaubt, Kernel Ereignisse sehr viel schneller zu überprüfen. Dieses Feature verringert außerdem
den durch Überprüfungstools (d.h. SystemT ap und Kprobes) verursachten Overhead auf Servern,
die auf 64-bit Architekturen laufen.
In dieser Aktualisierung wurde Unterstützung von pselect() und ppoll() Systemaufrufen dem
Kernel hinzugefügt.
6. Virtualization
T his section contains information about updates made to Red Hat Enterprise Linux suite of Virtualization
tools.
6.1. Feature Updates
Das blktap (blocktap) Userspace-T oolkit wurde aktualisiert und bietet die Funktionalität zur
Beobachtung der T ransferstatistiken von durch blktap gestützten virtualisierten Gästen.
Support für das Intel Extended Page T able (EPT ) Feature wurde hinzugefügt, wodurch die
Performance vollständig virtualisierter Gäste auf EPT unterstützender Hardware verbessert wurde.
Die e1000-Netzwerkgerätemulation wurde diesem Update hinzugefügt, die nur Windows 2003
Gäste auf der ia64 Architektur unterstützt. Z ur Verwendung der e1000 Emulation, muss der xmBefehl verwendet werden.
T reiber für virtio, die Plattform für I/O-Virtualisierung in KVM, wurden zu Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5.3 von Linux Kernel 2.6.27 backportiert. Diese T reiber ermöglichen es KVM-Gästen, eine höhere
Ebene von I/O-Performance zu erreichen. Verschiedene Userspace-Komponenten wie: anaconda,
kudzu, lvm , selinux und m kinitrd wurden ebenfalls aktualisiert, um Support für virtio Geräte zu
liefern.
Der native Linux Kernel unterstützt vm coreinfo automatisch, um aber kdump in dom0-Domains zu
erstellen, wurde das kernel-xen-debuginfo-Paket benötigt. In dieser Release wurden Kernel
und Hypervisor bearbeitet und unterstützen jetzt vmcoreinfo Reading und kdump Writing. Benutzer,
die kdump zum Debugging oder anderen Nachforschungen auf dom0-Domains benötigen können
dies jetzt ohne debuginfo oder debuginfo-com m on-Pakete tun.
Bei vollständig virtualisierte Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Gäste hatten keine optimale Performance bei
der Verwendung von emulierten Disk und Netzwerkgeräten. Dieses Update enthält das kmod-xenpvPaket zur Vereinfachung der Verwendung paravirtualisierter Disks und Netzwerke in vollständig
virtualisierten Gästen.
Die Verwendung dieser T reiber bei vollständig virtualiserten Gästen kann die Performance und
Funktionalität signifikant verbessern. Für Netfront- und Blockfront-T reiber vorgenommene
Fehlerbehebungen werden sofort realisiert und mit dem Kernelpaket synchronisiert.
26
6. Virtualization
Gäste haben jetzt die Möglichkeit auf die 2MB Backing Page Speichertabellen zuzugreifen, die die
Performance des Systems verbessern.
6.2. Resolved Issues
6.2.1. All Architectures
Das Abschalten eines paravirtualisierten Gastes konnte dazu führen, dass dom0 für eine bestimmte
Z eit nicht mehr reagierte. Es kam zu einem Z eitverzug von mehreren Sekunden bei Gästen mit viel
Speicherauslastung (d.h. 12GB und darüber). In diesem Update gestattet der virtualisierte Kernel die
Abschaltung eines großen eines paravirtualisierten Gastes entziehbar (preemptible) zu sein,
wodurch dieses Problem gelöst wird.
crash was unable to read the relocation address of the hypervisor from a vmcore file. Consequently,
opening a Virtualized kernel vmcore file with crash would fail, resulting in the error:
crash: cannot resolve "idle_pg_table_4"
In this update, the hypervisor now saves the address correctly, which resolves this issue.
Paravirtualisierte Gäste konnten ehemals maximal 16 Geräte besitzen. In diesem Update wurde das
Maximum auf 256 Disk-Geräte erhöht.
Für den kdump-Kernel reservierter Speicher war inkorrekt, wodurch es zu unbrauchbaren CrashDumps kam. In diesem Update ist die Speicherreservierung korrekt, so dass korrekte Crash-Dumps
generiert werden.
Das Anhängen einer Disk mit einem bestimmten Namen (d.h. /dev/xvdaa, /dev/xvdab,
/dev/xvdbc usw.) an einen paravirtualisierten Gast führte zu einem korrumpierten /dev-Gerät
innerhalb des Gastes. Dieses Update löst dieses Problem, so dass das Anhängen von Disks mit
diesen Namen an einen paravirtualisierten Gast ein ordnungsgemäßes /dev-Gerät innerhalb des
Gastes erstellt.
Die Anzahl der Loopback-Geräte war ehemals auf 4 beschränkt. In folge war der Bau von Brücken
auf Systemen mit mehr als 4 Netzwerk-Interfaces eingeschränkt. In diesem Update erstellt der
netloop-T reiber jetzt wie benötigt zusätzliche Loopback-Geräte.
Beim Erstellen und Auflösen von Netzwerkgeräten kam es zu einer Wettlaufsituation. In einigen
Fällen — insbesondere bei hoher Auslastung — führte dies dazu, dass das virtuelle Gerät nicht
antwortete. In diesem Update wird der Status des virtuellen Geräts geprüft, so dass das Auftreten
einer Wettlaufsituation verhindert wird.
Es kam zu einem Speicherleck in virt-m anager, wenn die Anwendung laufen gelassen wurde. In
Folge verbrauchte die Anwendung mehr Ressourcen, was zu einem dramatischen Speicherverlust
führen konnte. In diesem Update wurde das Speicherleck behoben und dieses Problem gelöst.
the crash utility could not analyze x86_64 vmcores from systems running kernel-xen because
the Red Hat Enterprise Linux hypervisor was relocatable and the relocated physical base address is
not passed in the vmcore file's ELF header. T he new --xen_phys_start command line option for
the crash utility allows the user to pass crash the relocated base physical address.
Nicht alles Mausereignisse wurden durch Paravirtual Fram e Buffer (PVFB) festgehalten
und verarbeitet. Das Scroll-Rädchen funktionierte daher nicht bei der Interaktion mit einem
paravirtualisierten Gast mit der Virtual Machine Console. In diesem Update ist dieses Problem
behoben.
Die Verwendung von Virtualisierung mit einer großen Anzahl von CPUs konnte zum Absturz des
Hypervisor während der Gastinstallation führen. In diesem Update wurde das Problem behoben.
Bei Intel Prozessoren, die einen CPUID Family-Value von 6 widergeben, war nur ein PerformanceCounter-Register in kernel-xen aktiviert. Deshalb lieferte nur Counter 0 Samples. In diesem
27
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Update wurde dieses Problem behoben.
6.2.2. x86 Architectures
On systems with newer CPU's, the CPU APIC ID differs from the CPU ID. Consequently, the
virtualized kernel was unable to initialize CPU frequency scaling. In this update, the virtualized kernel
now retrieves CPU APIC ID from the hypervisor, allowing CPU frequency scaling to be initialized
properly.
Lief ein x86 paravirtualisierter Gast und ein Vorgang griff auf ungültigen Speicher zu, so lief ein Loop
statt das ein SEGV-Signal eingeholt wurde. Dies führte zu einem Fehler bei der Überprüfung der
execshield unter dem Hypervisor. In diesem Update wurde das Problem behoben.
6.2.3. ia64 Architecture
A xend bug that previously caused guest installation failures is now fixed.
Beim evtchn-Ereignis Kanalgerät (Event Channel Device) fehlten Sperren und Speicherbarrieren.
Dies führte dazu, dass xenstore nicht mehr reagierte. In diesem Update wurde das Problem
behoben.
Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) Informationen wurden nicht mit dem xm info-Befehl
angezeigt. In Folge wurde der node_to_cpu-Wert für jeden Node inkorrekt als no cpus
widergegeben. In diesem Update wurde das Problem behoben.
Das Erstellen eines Gastes auf einer Hardware Virtual Machine (HVM) schlug ehemals bei VT -i2
T echnologie verwendenden Prozessoren fehl. Mit diesem Update ist dieses Problem behoben.
6.2.4 . x86_64 Architectures
Waren die für virtuelle Maschinen von Gästen verfügbaren Dynamic IRQs ausgeschöpft, so crashte
der dom 0-Kernel. In diesem Update wurde das Problem behoben, und die ANzahl verfügbarer IRQs
wurde erhöht.
On systems with newer CPU's, the CPU APIC ID differs from the CPU ID. Consequently, the
virtualized kernel was unable to initialize CPU frequency scaling. In this update, the virtualized kernel
now retrieves CPU APIC ID from the hypervisor, allowing CPU frequency scaling to be initialized
properly.
6.3. Known Issues
6.3.1. All Architectures
Auf Medien im Diskettenlaufwerk kann bei Verwendung des virtualisierten Kernels nicht zugegriffen
werden. Um dieses Problem zu umgehen, verwenden Sie ein USB-angehängtes Diskettenlaufwerk.
Medien im Diskettenlaufwerk funktionieren problemlos mit anderen nicht-virtualisierten Kernels.
In live migrations of paravirtualized guests, time-dependent guest processes may function improperly
if the corresponding hosts' (dom0) times are not synchronized. Use NT P to synchronize system
times for all corresponding hosts before migration.
Wird ein paravirtualisierter Gast wiederholt zwischen zwei Hosts migriert, kann ein Host ggf. mit
einem Panic abstürzen. Wird ein Host neu gebootet, nachdem ein Gast aus dem System heraus
migriert wurde und bevor er erneut auf denselben Gast migriert wird, tritt dieser Panic nicht auf.
Das Formattieren einer Disk als Gast während Windows 2008 oder Windows Vista läuft kann zum
Absturz führen, wenn der Gast mit mehreren virtuellen CPUs gebootet hat. Um dies zu vermeiden,
booten Sie den Gast beim Formattieren mit einer einzelnen virtuellen CPU.
Vollständig virtualisierte und durch virt-m anager erstellte Gäste hindern die Maus manchmal
28
6. Virtualization
daran sich frei über den Bildschirm hinweg zu bewegen. Verwenden Sie virt-m anager um dies zu
umgehen und eine USB T ablet-Gerät für den Gast zu konfigurieren.
Die maximalen CPUs müssen auf weniger als 128 beschränkt werden, wenn auf einem 128 oder
größeren CPU-System. Das derzeit unterstützte Maximum liegt bei 126. Verwenden Sie das
m axcpus=126-Hypervisor Argument, um den Hypervisor auf 126 zu beschränken.
Vollständig virtualisierte Gäste können durch Domain pause/unpause bedingte Z eitverluste nicht
korrigieren. Es gehört zu den Vorteilen paravirtualisierter Kernels, dass die Z eit bei pause/unpause
Vorgängen verfolgt werden kann. Dieses Problem wird Upstream mit ersetzbaren T imern
angesprochen, so dass vollständig virtualisierte Gäste paravirtualisierte T imer besitzen. Z um
derzeitigen Z eitpunkt befindet sich dieser Code in Entwicklung Upstream und sollte in späteren
Versionen von Red Hat Enterprise Linux verfügbar sein.
Wiederholte Migration paravirtualisierter Gäste kann zu bad m pa-Meldungen auf der dom 0-Konsole
führen. In einigen Fällen kann es auch zu einer Panik des Hypervisors kommen.
Um eine Hypervisor Kernel-Panik zu vermeiden, starten Sie die migrierten Gäste nachdem die
negativen mpa-Nachrichten erscheinen erneut.
Beim Einstellen des Interface-Bonding auf dom 0 kann es vorkommen, dass das Standard networkbridge-Skript dazu führt, dass Netzwerk-Interfaces aletrnierend zwischen unavailable und
available wechseln. Dieser Vorgang wird als flapping bezeichnet.
Um dem vorzubeugen ersetzen Sie die standardmäßige network-script-Z eile in
/etc/xen/xend-config.sxp durch folgende Z eile:
(network-script network-bridge-bonding netdev=bond0)
Hierdurch wird das netloop-Gerät deaktiviert, wodurch verhindert wird, dass das Address Resolution
Protocol (ARP) Monitoring während des Adressentransfervorgangs (address transfer process)
fehlschlägt.
When running multiple guest domains, guest networking may temporarily stop working, resulting in
the following error being reported in the dom0 logs:
Memory squeeze in netback driver
T o work around this, raise the amount of memory available to the dom0 with the dom 0_m em
hypervisor command line option.
6.3.2. x86 Architectures
Migrating paravirtualized guests through xm m igrate [domain] [dom0 IP address] does not
work.
When installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 on a fully virtualized SMP guest, the installation may
freeze. T his can occur when the host (dom 0) is running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2.
Stellen Sie den Gast so ein, dass er nur einen Prozessor während der Installation verwendet. Dies
können Sie mit der Option --vcpus=1 in virt-install tun. Sobald die Installation abgeschlossen
ist, können Sie den Gast auf SMP setzen, indem Sie die zugewiesenen vcpus in virt-manager
anpassen.
6.3.3. x86_64 Architectures
Migrating paravirtualized guests through xm m igrate [domain] [dom0 IP address] does not
work.
Installing the Virtualization feature may cause a tim e went backwards warning on HP systems

with model numbers xw9300 and xw9400.
Um dieses Problem auf xw9400-Maschinen zu umgehen, aktivieren Sie in den BIOS-Einstellungen
den HPET -T imer. Beachten Sie, dass diese Option für xw9300-Maschinen nicht zur Verfügung steht.
Installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.9 on a fully virtualized guest may be extremely slow. In addition,
booting up the guest after installation may result in hda: lost interrupt errors.
Um diesen Bootup-Fehler zu vermeiden, konfigurieren Sie den Gast so, dass er den SMP-Kernel
verwendet.
Upgrading a host (dom 0) system to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 may render existing Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4.5 SMP paravirtualized guests unbootable. T his is more likely to occur when the
host system has more than 4GB of RAM.
Booten Sie als provisorische Lösung jeden Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5 Gast in Single-CPU-Modus
und aktualisieren dessen Kernel auf die aktuellste Version (für Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5.z).
6.3.4 . ia64 Architecture
Migrating paravirtualized guests through xm m igrate [domain] [dom0 IP address] does not
work.
On some Itanium systems configured for console output to VGA, the dom 0 virtualized kernel may fail
to boot. T his is because the virtualized kernel failed to properly detect the default console device
from the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) settings.
Falls dies auftritt, können Sie, um dies zu umgehen, den Boot-Parameter console=tty zu den
Kernel-Boot-Optionen in /boot/efi/elilo.conf hinzufügen.
On some Itanium systems (such as the Hitachi Cold Fusion 3e), the serial port cannot be detected in
dom 0 when VGA is enabled by the EFI Maintenance Manager. As such, you need to supply the
following serial port information to the dom 0 kernel:
Geschwindigkeit in Bits/Sekunde
Anzahl der Daten-Bits
Parität
io_base-Adresse
Diese Details müssen in der Z eile append= des dom 0-Kernels in /boot/efi/elilo.conf
angegeben werden. Z um Beispiel:
append="com 1=19200,8n1,0x3f8 -- quiet rhgb console=tty0
console=ttyS0,19200n8"
In diesem Beispiel ist com 1 der serielle Port, 19200 die Geschwindigkeit (in Bits/Sekunde), 8n1 gibt
die Einstellungen bezüglich der Anzahl der Daten-Bits/Parität an und 0x3f8 ist die io_baseAdresse.
Virtualization does not work on some architectures that use Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA).
As such, installing the virtualized kernel on systems that use NUMA will result in a boot failure.
Einige Installationsnummern installieren den virtualisierten Kernel standardmäßig. Falls Sie eine
solche Installationsnummer besitzen und Ihr System NUMA verwendet und nicht mit kernel-xen
arbeitet, wählen Sie die Virtualisierungsoption während der Installation nicht aus.
Currently, live migration of fully virtualized guests is not supported on this architecture. In addition,
kexec and kdum p are also not supported for virtualization on this architecture.
7. Technology Previews
Technology Preview features are currently not supported under Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription
services, may not be functionally complete, and are generally not suitable for production use. However,
30
7. Technology Previews
these features are included as a customer convenience and to provide the feature with wider exposure.
Customers may find these features useful in a non-production environment. Customers are also free to
provide feedback and functionality suggestions for a T echnology Preview feature before it becomes fully
supported. Erratas will be provided for high-severity security issues.
During the development of a T echnology Preview feature, additional components may become available
to the public for testing. It is the intention of Red Hat to fully support T echnology Preview features in a
future release.
ALUA-Modus auf EMC Clariion
Der explizite aktiv-passiv Failover-Modus (ALUA) unter Verwendung von dm -m ultipath auf
EMC Clariion Speichergeräten wird nun unterstützt. Dieser Modus wird als T 10-Spezifikation
zur Verfügung gestellt, jedoch nur als eine T echnologievorschau in diesem Release.
For more information about T 10, refer to http://www.t10.org.
ext4
Die neueste Generation des ext-Dateisystems ext4 ist in dieser Release als
T echnologievorschau verfügbar. Ext4 ist eine schrittweise Verbesserung des von Red Hat
und der Linux Community entwickelten ext3-Dateisystems. Der Release-Name des
Dateisystems für die T echnologievorschau lautet ext4 dev.
Das Dateisystem wird durch das ext4 dev.ko-Kernelmodul und ein neues e4 fsprogs-Paket,
das aktualisierte Versionen der bekannten e2fsprogs Administrationstools zur Verwendung mit
ext4 enthält, bereitgestellt. Um dies zu verwenden, installieren Sie e4 fsprogs und verwenden
Sie dann Befehle wie m kfs.ext4 dev aus dem e4fsprogs-Programm zur Erstellung eines
ext4-base Dateisystems. Beim Bezug auf das Dateisystem bei einer Einhänge-Befehlszeile
oder fstab-Datei verwenden Sie den Dateisystemnamen ext4 dev.
FreeIPMI
FreeIPMI ist nun als T echnologievorschau Bestandteil dieser Aktualisierung. FreeIPMI ist eine
Sammlung von Intelligent Platform Management IPMI System-Software. Es bietet In-Band- und
Out-Of-Band-Software, parallel zur Entwicklungsbibliothek, die mit den Intelligent Platform
Management Interface (IPMI v1.5 and v2.0) Standards übereinstimmt.
For more information about FreeIPMI, refer to http://www.gnu.org/software/freeipmi/
T rouSerS und tpm-tools
TrouSerS und tpm -tools sind in diesem Release enthalten, um die Verwendung von Trusted
Platform Module (T PM) Hardware zu ermöglichen. T PM-Hardware-Features umfassen (neben
anderen):
Sicheres Erstellen, Speichern und Verwenden von RSA-Schlüsseln (ohne dass diese im
Speicher dargelegt werden)
Verifizierung des Software-Status einer Plattform unter Verwendung kryptografischer
Hashes
TrouSerS ist eine Implementierung der T rusted Computing Group's Software Stack (T SS)
Specification. Sie können T rouSerS dazu verwenden, Applikationen zu schreiben, die T PMHardware nutyen. tpm -tools ist ein Satz von T ools zur Verwaltung und Nutzung von T PMHardware.

eCryptfs
eCryptfs ist ein gestapeltes kryptografisches Dateisystem für Linux. Es wird in individuellen
Verzeichnissen in bereits eingehängten, untergeordneten Dateisystemen wie EXT 3 eingehängt.
Die vorhandenen Partitionen oder Dateisysteme müssen nicht geändert werden, um mit der
Verwendung von eCryptfs zu beginnen.
Mit dieser Release basiert eCryptfs nun auf Upstream Version 56, die mehrere
Fehlerbehebungen und Verbesserungen bietet. Au-erdem liefert dieses Update ein grafisches
Programm, das bei der Konfiguration von eCryptfs (ecryptfs-m ount-helper-gui) hilft.
Dieses Update ändert auch die Syntax bestimmter eCryptfs/Einhängeoptionen. Falls Sie sich
dafür entscheiden, dies zu dieser Version von eCryptfs zu aktualisieren, so sollten Sie alle
betroffenen Einhängeskripte und /etc/fstab-Einträge aktualisieren. Informationen zu diesen
Änderungen finden Sie unter m an ecryptfs.
Folgende Warnhinweise gelten für diese Release von eCryptfs:
Beachten Sie, dass das eCryptfsDateisystem nur dann ordnungsgemäß funktioniert, wenn
das verschlüsselte Dateisystem einmal über dem zugrunde liegenden Verzeichnis gleichen
Namens eingehängt ist. Z um Beispiel:
mount -t ecryptfs /mnt/secret /mnt/secret
Der gesicherte T eil des Dateisystems sollte nicht offengelegt sein, d.h. nicht an anderen
Einhängepunkten (Mount Points), Einbindepunkten (Bind Points) u.ä. eingehängt sein.
eCryptfs hängt an genetzwerkten Dateisystemen ein (z.B. NFS, Samba), funktioniert nicht
ordnungsgemäß.
Diese Version des eCryptfs-Kerneltreibers benötigt aktualisierten Userspace, der durch
ecryptfs-utils-56-4 .el5 oder neuer bereitgestellt wird.
For more information about eCryptfs, refer to http://ecryptfs.sf.net. You can also refer to
http://ecryptfs.sourceforge.net/README and http://ecryptfs.sourceforge.net/ecryptfs-faq.html for
basic setup information.
Stateless-Linux
Stateless-Linux ist eine neue Denkweise, wie ein System betrieben und verwaltet werden soll.
Es ist dafür gedacht, die Versorgung und das Management einer großen Anzahl von Systemen
zu vereinfachen, indem diese leicht austauschbar sind. Dies wird in erster Linie durch die
Herstellung präparierter System-Images erreicht, die repliziert und über eine große Anzahl von
zustandlosen (stateless) Systemen mit einem Betriebssystem in einem read-only-Status
hinweg verwaltet werden (bitte werfen Sie einen Blick auf /etc/sysconfig/readonly-root
für weitere Einzelheiten).
In diesem derzeitigen Entwicklungsstatus sind die Stateless-Features eine T eilmenge der
beabsichtigten Z iele. Als solche ist ihre T auglichkeit derzeit als "T echnologievorschau"-Status
gekennzeichnet.
Interessenten für das T esten von zustandlosem (stateless) Code, wird dringend empfohlen, die
HOWT Os unter http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StatelessLinux/HOWT O zu lesen und Mitglied der
Liste stateless-list@redhat.com zu werden.
32
7. Technology Previews
Die ersten Bestandteile, die Stateless Linux ermöglichten, wurden ursprünglich in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 eingeführt.
AIGLX
AIGLX ist ein T echnologievorschau-Feature des ansonsten komplett unterstützten X-Servers.
Es hat die Absicht, GL-beschleunigte Effekte auf einem Standard-Desktop zu aktivieren. Das
Projekt besteht aus den folgenden Komponenten:
Ein geringfügig modifizierter X-Server.
Ein aktualisiertes Mesa-Paket, das Support für neue Protokolle hinzufügt.
Wenn Sie diese Komponenten installieren, können Sie GL-beschleunigte Effekte auf Ihrem
Desktop mit sehr wenigen Änderungen nutzen. Weiterhin haben Sie die Möglichkeit, diese nach
Belieben zu aktivieren, bzw. zu deaktivieren, ohne den X-Server zu ersetzen. AIGLX ermöglicht
es außerdem Remote-GLX-Anwendungen, die Vorteile von Hardware-GLX-Beschleunigung zu
nutzen.
FireWire
Das Modul firewire-sbp2 wird im Rahmen dieser Aktualisierung weiterhin als
T echnologievorschau eingebunden. Dieses Modul ermöglicht die Verbindung mit FireWire
Speichergeräten und Scannern.
Derzeit unterstützt FireWire Folgendes nicht:
IPv4
pcilynx Host-Kontroller
multi-LUN Speichergeräte
Nicht-exklusiver Z ugriff auf Speichergeräte
Z usätzlich bestehen die folgenden Probleme in dieser Version von FireWire weiterhin:
ein Speicherleck im SBP2-T reiber kann dazu führen, dass die Maschine nicht mehr
antwortet.
ein Code in dieser Version funktioniert nicht ordnungsgemäß auf "big-endian"-Maschinen.
Dies kann zu unerwartetem Verhalten auf PowerPCs führen.
ktune
Diese Release enthält ktune (aus dem ktune-Paket), einen Dienst, der mehrere KernelFeinabstimmungsparameter auf für bestimmte Systemprofile passende Werte setzt. Derzeit
bietet ktune nur ein Profil für Großspeicher-Systeme, die Disk- und Netzwerk-intensive
Anwendungen ausführen.
Die durch ktune gelieferten Einstellungen setzen diejenigen in /etc/sysctl.conf oder
durch die Kernel-Befehlszeile nicht außer Kraft. ktune ist möglicherweise für einige Systeme
und Arbeitsbelastungen nicht geeignet; testen Sie dies ausgiebig ehe Sie es in der Produktion
deployen.
Sie können jeden Konfigurationsatz durch ktune deaktivieren und zu Ihren regulären
Einstellungen zurückkehren, indem Sie einfach den ktune-Dienst mittels service ktune
stop (als Root) stoppen.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
SGPIO Support für dmraid
Serial General Purpose Input Output (SGPIO) ist eine dem Industriestandard entsprechende
Kommunikationsmethode, die zwischen einer Hauptplatine (Main Board) und verschiedenen
internen und externen Bay Enclosures der Hard Disc Anwendung findet. Diese Methode kann
zur Steuerung von LED-Lichtern an einer Enclosure durch das AHCI T reiber-Interface
verwendet werden.
In dieser Release ist SGPIO-Support in dmraid als T echnologievorschau enthalten. Dies
gestattet es dmraid ordnungsgemäß mit Disk Enclosures zu funktionieren.
GCC 4 .3
Die Gnu Compiler Collection version 4.3 (GCC4.3) ist jetzt in dieser Release als eine
T echnologievorschau enthalten. Diese Sammlung von Compilern enthält C, C++ und Fortran 95
Compiler sowie Support-Bibliotheken.
Beachten Sie, dass in den gcc4 3-Paketen der Standard für die gnu89-inline-Option zu fgnu89-inline geändert wurde, wobei Upstream und zukünftige Aktualisierungen von Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5 standardmäßig -fno-gnu89-inline sein werden. Dies ist notwendig,
weil viele als T eil von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 vertriebenen Header GNU in-line Semantik
statt ISO C99 Semantik erwarten. Diese Headers wurden nicht angepasst, um GNU in-line
Semantik durch Attribute anzufordern.
Kernel T racepoint Facility
In diesem Update wurde ein neuer Kernel Marker/T racepoint Facility als T echnologievorschau
implementiert. Dieses Interface fügt dem Kernel statische T estpunkte zur Verwendung mit
T ools wie etwa SystemT ap hinzu.
Device Failure Monitoring von RAID Sets
Device Failure Monitoring unter Verwendung der T ools dmraid und dmevent_tool sind in Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 als T echnologievorschau enthalten. Dies ermöglicht die Beobachtung
und Meldung von Gerätefehlfunktionen auf Gerätekomponenten von RAID Sets.
8. Resolved Issues
8.1. All Architectures
Die Daten für Aktivitätsberichte des T T Y-Geräts wurden nicht ordnungsgemäß generiert. Der sar y-Befehl schlug daher fehl und meldete den folgenden Fehler:
Requested activities not available in file (dt. Angeforderte Aktivitäten nicht
in der Datei verfügbar)
In diesem aktualisierten Paket ist sar korrigiert, so dass die -y Option die Aktivität des T T Y-Geräts
anzeigt.
Z uvor hinderte die Einstellung von m ax_fds auf unlim ited in /etc/m ultipath.conf den
multipathd-Daemon am Starten. Falls die Anzahl offener Datei-Deskriptoren auf das SystemMaximum gesetzt werden muss, so sollte m ax_fds auf m ax eingestellt werden.
34
8. Resolved Issues
mod_perl ist jetzt auf Version 2.0.4 rebasiert, der aktuellsten Upstream Release. Dieses Update
wendet mehrere Updates an, darunter einen Bug-Fix, der es mod_perl jetzt gestattet,
ordnungsgemäß mit Bugzilla 3.0 zu arbeiten.
cups basiert jetzt auf Version 1.3.7. Dieses Update beinhaltet mehrere Fehlerbehebungen und
Verbesserungen, darunter:
Kerberos Authentifikation wird nun unterstützt
Benutzerdefinierte Drucker- und Job-Richtlinien werden jetzt ordnungsgemäß geladen.
Remote Warteschleifen-Chaches werden nicht mehr geladen, wenn das Browsing deaktiviert ist.
Die classes.conf-Konfigurationsdatei besitzt jetzt die korrekten Genehmigungen.
lm _sensors basiert nun auf Version 2.10.7. Dieses Update beinhaltet mehrere UpstreamVerbesserungen und Fehlerbehebungen, darunter einen Fix, der verhindert, dass libsensors mit
einer General parse error-Nachricht abstürzt, wenn k8tem p ebenfalls geladen wird.
Die Aktualisierung von elfutils im Rahmen dieser Release behebt nun die folgenden Fehler:
Das eu-readelf-Dienstprogramm stürtzte beim Lesen bestimmter Eingabe-Dateien ab.
Das eu-strip-DIenstprogramm wird in den rpm build-Vorgängen verwendet, die neue
Binärdatei-Pakete erstellen. Dabei werden Informationen zur Fehlerbehebung von ausführbarem
Code getrennt, um -debuginfo-Pakete zu erstellen. Ein Fehler bei diesem Dienstprogramm
führte dazu, dass unbrauchbare Informationen zur Fehlerbehebung für ET _REL-Dateien auf der
s390-Plattform auftraten; dies betrifft Moduldateien des Linux-Kernels (.ko.debug) und führte
dazu, dass die generierten kernel-debuginfo-Pakete nicht mit Systemtap auf s390
funktionierten.
vnc-server ist nun auf Version 4.1.2-14.el5 abgestimmt. Dieses Update enthält die folgenden
Fehlerbehebungen:
Ein Fehler, der vncserver am Drucken von Fehlermeldungen hinderte, wenn Xvnc nicht startete,
ist jetzt behoben.
Xvnc verwendet nicht mehr die falsche Root Window Depth; es wird nun die korrekte Window
Depth verwendet, wie sie durch die -depth-Option festgelegt wird.
Ein Fehler, der dazu führte, dass das libvnc.so-Modul den X-Server zum Absturz brachte, ist
nun behoben.
Xvnc unterstützt jetzt GLX- und RENDER-Erweiterungen auf allen Architekturen.
smartmontools basiert nun auf Version 5.38. Dieses Update verbessert die Autodetection von
Hardware-Geräten, verbessert den Support für CCISS RAID Arrays und bietet eine größere
Datenbank unterstützter Geräte.
Dieses Update behebt außerdem einen Fehler bei dem SELinux smartmontools and der
Überwachung von 3ware RAID-Geräten hinderte. smartmontools ckann solche Geräte jetzt
ordnungsgemäß überwachen.
python-urlgrabber basiert nun auf Version 3.1.0-5. Dadurch werden mehrere Fehler von Upstream
behoben, darunter:
yum kann nun ordnungsgemäß erneut aus einem yum -Repository downloaden, das T eilDownloads nicht unterstützt.
yum kann nun mit einem unterbrochenen Download fortfahren, selbst wenn das yum -Repository
mit einem festgelegten Port FT P-basiert ist.
Die Größe des Ladebalkens ist jetzt dynamisch zur T erminalbreite. Außerdem sind die
Ladebalken nun übersichtlicher und zeigen einen Prozentsatz der insgesamt heruntergeladenen
Daten an.
Das keepalive-Signal von python-urlgrabber funktioniert nun problemlos. In der
Vergangenheit hatte ein Fehler bei diesem Signal dazu geführt, dass es während Download zu
einer Erhöhung des Speichergebrauchs kam; außerdem verhinderte dieser Fehler die
35
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
ordnungsgemäße Funktionsweise von reposync und yumdownloader beim Herunterladen
großer Mengen an Paketen.
T hunderbird basiert nun auf Version 1.1.16. Es wurden mehrere Fehler behoben, darunter:
yum update --security findet jetzt alte, relevante Sicherheits-Updates.
yum -versionlock funktioniert jetzt ordnungsgemäß bei veralteten Paketen.
Dieses Update enthält auch den yum -fastestm irror-Plugin, der es yum ermöglicht, das
schnellste Repository in einer Mirror-Liste zu wählen.
Samba basiert nun auf Upstream Version 3.2.0. Dadurch werden mehrere Fehler behoben, darunter
einer, der Benutzer daran hinderte Windows 2003 verwendende Domains als ihren Name-Server zu
nutzen. Außerdem behebt dieses Update einen Fehler, der dazu führte, dass die Mitgliedschaft bei
der samba-Domain nach Änderung des Systempassworts mittels net rpc changetrustpw
unterbrochen wurde.
For a more comprehensive list of upstream samba updates included this release, refer to
http://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.0.32.html
OpenLDAP basiert nun auf Upstream Version 2.3.43. Mehrere Upstream Fehler wurden dabei
behoben, darunter:
Das init-Skript meldet jetzt eine Warnung, wenn der slapd-Daemon eine T LS-Z ertifikatsdatei
nicht lesen kann.
Alle Bibliotheken im openldap-debuginfo-Paket sind jetzt unstripped.
Die Deinstallation des openldap-devel-Pakets, führt nicht mehr zu Schäden an den
OpenLDAP-Bibliotheken.
Red Hat distribuiert jetzt zusätzliche Overlays für OpenLDAP-Server. Außer syncprov befinden sich
alle Overlays in separaten openldap-servers-overlays-Paketen, die als dynamisch ladbare
Module kompiliert sind. Das syncprov-Overlay ist statisch zum OpenLDAP-Server verlinkt, um die
Kompatibilität mit älteren OpenLDAP-Releases zu gewährleisten.
Da bei der xterm Binärdatei das gesetzte Gruppen-ID (setgid) Bit konfiguriert war, waren
bestimmte Umgebungsvariablen (wie LD_LIBRARY_PAT H und T MPDIR) nicht gesetzt. In dieser
Release sind bei der xterm -Binärdatei jetzt die Modus 0755-Genehmigungen konfiguriert, wodurch
dieses Problem behoben ist.
T he recommended method for balancing the load on NIS servers when multiple machines are
connecting with ypbind has changed with this release. T he ypbind daemon's behavior has not
changed: it still pings all NIS servers listed in the /etc/ypbind configuration file and then binds to
the single fastest-responding server. Before, it was recommended to list all available NIS servers in
each machine's /etc/ypbind.conf configuration file. However, because even servers under high
load can respond quickly to this ping, thus inadvertently increasing their own load, it is now
recommended for administrators to list a smaller number of available NIS servers in each machine's
ypbind.conf, and to vary this list across machines. In this way, NIS servers are automatically loadbalanced due to not every NIS server being listed as being available to every machine.
T hunderbird basiert nun auf Version 2.3.1. Diese Aktualisierung behebt mehrere Fehler, darunter:
Ein Fehler beim Umgang von OpenMotif mit den Grab und Ungrab-Ereignissen ist nun
behoben. In früheren Releases führte dieser Fehler manchmal zur Display-Sperre.
Ein Fehler in nedit konnte bei Verwendung der nedit grafischen Benutzeroberfläche zum
Absturz führen. Dies war aufgrund einer Funktion im Code der Fall, die bei einigen Fällen der
Postenauswahl zu einem Segmentierungsfehler führte. Dieses Problem ist nun behoben.
dbus basiert nun auf Version 1.1.2. Dieses Update behebt einen Fehler, der dazu führte, dass
mehrthreadige Programme zu einer Sperre in dbus führten. In früheren Releases, bei denen ein
T hread auf dbus horchte und Nachrichten verarbeitete, sendete der zweite T hread Nachrichten an
dbus.
strace basiert nun auf Version 4.5.18. Dadurch werden mehrere Fehler behoben, darunter:
36
8. Resolved Issues
Ein Fehler, der zum Absturz von strace bei Verwendung der -f-Option bei einigen
mehrthreadigen Programmen (insbesondere bei 64-bit Systemen) führte, ist jetzt behoben.
Ein Fehler, der die 64-bit Version von strace an der Ausführung des vfork()-Funktionsaufrufs
an einem 32-bit Vorgang hinderte, ist jetzt behoben.
cpuspeed wurde zu Version 1.2.1-5 aktualisiert. Mit diesem Update lädt das cpuspeed init-Skript
das speedstep-centrino-Modul jetzt, wenn das Laden aller anderen Module fehlschlägt.
Außerdem wurde ein Benutzer-Space Fehler behoben, der das Powernow-k8-Modul am Laden
hinderte nun behoben from.
Der frysk-Satz von T ools wurde vollständig aus dieser Distribution entfernt. frysk war ursprünglich
als T echnologievorschau in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.0 enthalten.
Die vom iostat -x/Befehl bereitgestellten Partition I/O Statistiken waren zuvor unvollständig. In
diesem Update werden Partitionsstatistiken jetzt auf dieselbe Weise wie Disk-Statistiken errechnet,
wodurch kohärente und verständliche I/O Statistiken auf Partitionsebene geliefert werden.
Ein Passwort-Offenlegungsfehler wurde in der Konfigurationsdatei für den Dovecot-Mailserver
gefunden. War bei einem System die ssl_key_password-Option definiert, so konnte jeder beliebige
lokale Benutzer das SSL-Schlüsselpasswort einsehen. (CVE-2008-4870)
Anmerkung
Dieser Fehler gestattete dem Angreifer keinen Z ugriff auf die Inhalte des SSL-Schlüssels. Das
Passwort besitzt ohne die Schlüsseldatei, auf welche beliebige Benutzer keinen Lesezugriff
haben sollten, keinen Wert.
T o better protect even this value, however, the dovecot.conf file now supports the "!include_try"
directive. T he ssl_key_password option should be moved from dovecot.conf to a new file
owned by, and only readable and writable by, root (ie 0600). T his file should be referenced from
dovecot.conf by setting the !include_try /path/to/password/file option.
8.2. x86_64 Architectures
ksh basiert nun auf Version 2008-02-02. Dieses Update fügt Multi-Byte Z eichen-Handhabung hinzu,
löst zahlreiche Probleme bei der Job-Steuerung und behebt mehrere Fehler von Upstream. Beachten
Sie, dass dieses Update zu ksh die Kompatibilität zu bestehenden Skripts bewahrt.
8.3. s390x Architectures
Ein vm convert-Fehler verhinderte, dass es ordnungsgemäß am vm ur-Geräte-Node
(/dev/0.0.000c) funktionierte. Dies führte zum Fehlschlagen von vm convert beim Versuch auf
Dumps am vm ur-Gerät zuzugreifen mit dem Fehler vm convert: Open dum p file failed!
(Perm ission denied). Ein Update to s390utils in dieser Release behebt dieses Problem.
Das init/Skript und die config-Datei für den m on_procd-Daemon sowie m on_fsstatd-Daemon
fehlten im s390utils-Paket. Es konnte daher kein Build dieser Daemons erfolgen und diese
konnten nicht verwendet werden. Die fehlenden Dateien wurden diesem Update hinzugefügt, so
dass das Problem nun behoben ist.
8.4. PowerPC Architectures
Ein Fehler, der das ehci_hcd-Modul daran hinderte auf dieser Architektur erneut zu laden, wurde
nun behoben. Dies stellt sicher, dass der Belkin 4-port PCI-Express USB Lily-Adapter (und andere
ähnliche Geräte) jetzt mit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 ordnungsgemäß funktionieren, wenn das
37
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
ehci_hcd-Modul verwendet wird.
Die libhugetlbfs-Bibliothek basiert nun auf Version 1.3. Dieses Update wendet mehrere Upstream
Verbesserungen an der Bibliothek, wodurch die Performance von Huge-Seiten verwendenden
Anwendungen verbessert wird.
Eine vollständige Liste von Updates für libhugetlbfs finden Sie unter folgendem Link:
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?

9. Known Issues
9.1. All Architectures
Wenn das neue Feature der Platten-Verschlüsselung angewendet wird zum Verschlüsseln des Root
Dateisystems, wird die folgende Fehlermeldung beim Herunterfahren des Systems auf der Konsole
ausgegeben:
Stopping disk encryption [FAILED]
Diese Meldung kann getrost ignoriert werden, denn das Herunterfahren wird dennoch erfolgreich
abgeschlossen.
When using an encrypted device, the following error message may be reported during bootup:
insmod: error inserting '/lib/aes_generic.ko': -1 File exists
T his message can safely be ignored.
Eine Installation unter Verwendung von Multiple Device (MD) RAID zusätzlich zu multipath wird dazu
führen, dass der Rechner nicht booten kann. Multipath zu Storage Area Network (SAN) Geräten,
welche RAID intern bieten, sind davon nicht betroffen.
When a large number of LUNs are added to a node, multipath can significantly increase the time it
takes for udev to create device nodes for them. If you experience this problem, you can correct it by
deleting the following line in /etc/udev/rules.d/4 0-m ultipath.rules:
KERNEL!="dm-[0-9]*", ACTION=="add", PROGRAM=="/bin/bash -c '/sbin/lsmod |
/bin/grep ^dm_multipath'", RUN+="/sbin/multipath -v0 %M:%m"
T his line causes udev to run multipath every time a block device is added to the node. Even with this
line removed, multipathd will still automatically create multipath devices, and multipath will still be
called during the boot process, for nodes with multipathed root filesystems. T he only change is that
multipath devices will not be automatically created when multipathd is not running, which should not
be a problem for the vast majority of multipath users.
Beim Aktualisieren von einer früheren Version von Red Hat Enterprise Linux auf 5.3 können Sie auf
folgenden Fehler stoßen:
Updating : mypackage
################### [ 472/1655]
rpmdb: unable to lock mutex: Invalid argument
Der Grund für dieses Locking Problem ist, dass das gemeinsam genutzte Futex-Locking in glibc mit
Futexes pro Prozess zwischen 5.2 und 5.3 weiterentwickelt wurde. Dies hat zur Folge, dass
Programme, die mit 5.2 glibc laufen, gemeinsam genutztes Futex Locking nicht ordnungsgemäß
ausführen können zusammen mit Programmen, welche mit 5.3 glibc laufen.
Diese spezielle Fehlermeldung ist eine Nebenwirkung eines Paketes, welches rpm als T eil seines
38
9. Known Issues
Installationsprozesses aufruft. Der RPM Vorgang, der die Aktualisierung durchführt, verwendet die
frühere glibc während der gesamten Aktualisierung. Der RPM Vorgang, der aus dem Skript heraus
gestartet wurde, nutzt jedoch die neue glibc.
T o avoid this error, upgrade glibc first in a separate run:
# yum update glibc
# yum update
You will also see this error if you downgrade glibc to an earlier version on an installed 5.3 system.
m vapich und m vapich2 sind in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 kompiliert, um nur die InfiniBand/iWARP
Interconnects zu unterstützen. Infolgedessen laufen sie nicht über Ethernet oder Netzwerk
Interconnects.
In Systemen mit mehr als zwei verschlüsselten Blockgeräten hat Anaconda eine Option, die ein
übergreifendes Passwort bietet kann. Die init Scripte unterstützen dieses Feature jedoch nicht. Beim
Booten des Systems wird die Eingabe der jeweiligen Passwörter für jedes verschlüsselte Gerät
verlangt.
When upgrading openmpi using yum, the following warning may be returned:
cannot open `/tmp/openmpi-upgrade-version.*' for reading: No such file or
directory
T he message is harmless and can be safely ignored.
Das Konfigurieren von IRQ SMP Affinität hat keine Auswirkung auf manche Geräte, die "Message
Signaled Interrupts" (MSI) verwenden ohne Fähigkeit für das MSI Per-Vector Masking. Beispiele für
solche Geräte sind Broadcom NetXtreme Ethernet Geräte, die den T reiber bnx2 verwenden.
Wenn Sie die IRQ Affinität für ein solches Gerät konfigurieren müssen, deaktivieren Sie MSI durch
Erstellen einer Datei in /etc/m odprobe.d/, welche die folgende Z eile enthält:
options bnx2 disable_msi=1
Alternativ können Sie MSI auch vollständig deaktivieren, indem Sie den Kernel Boot Parameter
pci=nom si verwenden.
Ein Bug in der aktualisierten Datei /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules verhindert das Erstellen
von persistenten Namen für Bandgeräte mit Z ahlen größer als 9 im Namen. So wird beispielsweise
kein persistenter Name für ein Bandgerät mit einem Namen nst12 erstellt.
Fügen Sie als temporäre Lösung ein Sternchen (*) hinter jedem T reffer des Strings nst[0-9] in
/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules ein.
Das sm artctl-T ool kann SMART -Parameter nicht korrekt von SAT A-Geräten lesen.
Ein Bug in früheren Versionen von openm pi und lam kann Sie am Aktualisieren dieser Pakete
hindern. Dieser Bug äußert sich im folgenden Fehler (beim Versuch, openm pi oder lam zu
aktualisieren):
error: %preun(openmpi-[version]) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
Deshalb müssen Sie ältere Versionen von openm pi und lam manuell entfernen, um deren
aktuellste Versionen zu installieren. Verwenden Sie hierfür den folgenden rpm -Befehl:
rpm -qa | grep '^openm pi-\|^lam -' | xargs rpm -e --noscripts --allm atches
When using dm -m ultipath, if features "1 queue_if_no_path" is specified in
/etc/m ultipath.conf then any process that issues I/O will hang until one or more paths are
restored.
39
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
T o avoid this, set no_path_retry [N] in /etc/m ultipath.conf (where [N] is the number of
times the system should retry a path). When you do, remove the features "1
queue_if_no_path" option from /etc/m ultipath.conf as well.
If you need to use "1 queue_if_no_path" and experience the issue noted here, use dm setup to
edit the policy at runtime for a particular LUN (i.e. for which all the paths are unavailable).
T o illustrate: run dm setup m essage [device] 0 "fail_if_no_path", where [device] is the
multipath device name (e.g. m path2; do not specify the path) for which you want to change the policy
from "queue_if_no_path" to "fail_if_no_path".
Das Aktivieren von mehreren installierten Versionen desselben Kernel-Moduls wird nicht unterstützt.
Z usätzlich kann ein Bug in der Art und Weise, wie Kernel-Module analysiert werden, manchmal dazu
führen, dass eine ältere Version desselben Kernel-Moduls aktiviert wird.
Red Hat empfiehlt, bei der Installation einer neueren Version eines installierten Kernel-Moduls
zunächst die ältere Version zu deinstallieren.
Das Ausführen von kdum p auf einem IBM Bladecenter QS21 oder QS22, konfiguriert mit NFS-Root,
schlägt fehl. Um dies zu umgehen, geben Sie ein NFS-Dump-Z iel in /etc/kdum p.conf an.
IBM T60 schalten sich im Suspend-Modus und beim Andocken an einer Docking-Station komplett
aus. Um dies zu verhindern, booten Sie das System mit dem Parameter acpi_sleep=s3_bios.
Die QLogic iSCSI Expansion Card für das IBM Bladecenter liefert sowohl Ethernet- als auch iSCSIFunktionen. Einige T eile der Karte werden von beiden Funktionen gemeinsam verwendet. Die
aktuellen qla3xxx- und qla4 xxx-T reiber unterstützen die Ethernet- und iSCSI-Funktionen jedoch
individuell. Beide T reiber unterstützen die gleichzeitige Verwendung von Ethernet- und iSCSIFunktionen jedoch nicht.
Aufgrund dieser Einschränkung können nachfolgende Resets (durch aufeinander folgende
ifdown/ifup-Befehle) zum Hängenbleiben des Geräts führen. Gönnen Sie sich ein 10-Sekunden
Intervall nach einem ifup, bevor Sie ein ifdown ausführen, um dies zu verhindern. Gönnen Sie sich
dasselbe 10-Sekunden Intervall nach einem ifdown, bevor Sie ein ifup ausführen. Dieses Intervall
bietet ausreichend Z eit zur Stabilisierung und Neuinitialisierung aller Funktionen, wenn ein ifup
ausgeführt wird.
Laptops, die mit einer Cisco Aironet MPI-350 Wireless-Karte ausgestattet sind, bleiben ggf. beim
Versuch hängen, eine DHCP-Adresse während einer netzwerkbasierten Installation via
festverdrahtetem Ethernet-Port zu erhalten.
Um dies zu umgehen, verwenden Sie lokale Medien für Ihre Installation. Alternativ können Sie auch
die Wirelesskarte im BIOS des Laptops vor Beginn der Installation deaktivieren (Sie können die
Wirelesskarte nach Abschluss der Installation wieder reaktivieren).
Das Protokollieren während des Bootvorgangs in /var/log/boot.log steht in Red Hat Enterprise

Falls X auf einem System mit ATI Rage XL Grafikkarte läuft, stellen Sie sicher, das diese den vesaT reiber verwendet, um erfolgreich in einen kexec-/kdum p-Kernel zu booten.
Wenn Sie Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 auf einem Rechner mit einem nVidia CK804-Chipsatz

Diese Meldungen weisen darauf hin, dass bestimmte PCI-E-Ports keine IRQs anfordern. Sie
beeinflussen jedoch in keiner Weise die Funktionsfähigkeit des Rechners.

Entfernbare Speichergeräte (wie beispielsweise CDs und DVDs) werden nicht automatisch
eingehängt, wenn Sie sich als Root einloggen. Aus diesem Grund müssen Sie diese Geräte mithilfe
des grafischen Dateimanagers manuell einhängen.
Alternativ können Sie den folgenden Befehl ausführen, um ein Gerät unter /m edia einzuhängen:
mount /dev/[device name] /media
Wenn eine LUN auf einem konfigurierten Speichersystem gelöscht wird, wirkt sich die Änderung nicht
auf den Host aus. In diesen Fällen bleiben lvm Befehle unbegrenzt lange hängen, wenn dm m ultipath verwendet wird, da die LUN nun als stale (abgelaufen) gilt.
Löschen Sie als provisorische Lösung alle Geräte und m path Link-Einträge in /etc/lvm /.cache,
die spezifisch für die abgelaufene LUN sind.
Um herauszufinden, wie diese Einträge lauten, führen Sie folgenden Befehl aus:
ls -l /dev/m path | grep [stale LUN]
Wenn die [stale LUN] beispielsweise 3600d0230003414f30000203a7bc41a00 beträgt, können
die folgenden Resultate auftreten:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Aug
../dm-4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Aug
../dm-5
2 10:33 /3600d0230003414f30000203a7bc41a00 ->
2 10:33 /3600d0230003414f30000203a7bc41a00p1 ->
Dies bedeutet, dass 3600d0230003414f30000203a7bc41a00 zwei m path-Verknüpfungen
zugewiesen ist: dm -4 und dm -5.
Daher sollten die folgenden Z eilen aus /etc/lvm /.cache gelöscht werden:
/dev/dm-4
/dev/dm-5
/dev/mapper/3600d0230003414f30000203a7bc41a00

Das Ausführen des m ultipath-Befehls mit der Option -ll kann dazu führen, dass der Befehl
hängenbleibt, falls sich einer der Pfade auf einem Blockinggerät befindet. Beachten Sie, dass der
T reiber für einige Z eit keine Anfrage bearbeitet, falls das Gerät nicht mehr antwortet.
Dies wird durch den Cleanup-Code verursacht, der solange wartet, bis die Anfrage für die
Überprüfung des Pfads entweder erfolgreich abgeschlossen wird oder fehlschlägt. Um den aktuellen
m ultipath-Status anzuzeigen, ohne den Befehl aufzuhängen, verwenden Sie stattdessen
m ultipath -l.
Das Aktualisieren von pm -utils von einer Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 Beta Version von pm utils schlägt fehl und resultiert in dem folgenden Fehler:

Auch wenn der T reiber die Hardware zurücksetzt und sich von einem solchen Ereignis erholt, gehen
alle bestehenden Verbindungen zum Z eitpunkt des Fehlers verloren. Dies führt gewöhnlich zu einem

Beim Installieren von Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 auf einem Gast wird dieser so konfiguriert, dass er
ausdrücklich einen temporären Installations-Kernel verwendet, bereitgestellt von dom 0. Sobald die
Installation abgeschlossen ist, kann er seinen eigenen Boot-Loader verwenden. Dies kann allerdings
nur dadurch erreicht werden, dass der Gast beim ersten Neustart stattdessen zum Beenden
gezwungen wird.
Nach beendeter Gast-Installation wird aus diesem Grund der Klick auf den erscheinenden RebootSchalter den Gast beenden, ohne Neustart. Dieses Verhalten ist erwartet.
Beachten Sie, dass beim anschließenden Neustart des Gastes dessen eigener Boot-Loader
verwendet wird.
Das Ausführen von rpm build auf dem com piz Quell-RPM schlägt fehl, wenn ein KDE- oder qtDevelopment-Paket (z.B. qt-devel) installiert ist. Dies wird hervorgerufen durch einen Fehler im
com piz Konfigurations Script.
Für eine provisorische Lösung entfernen Sie jedes KDE- oder qt Development-Paket, bevor Sie
versuchen, das com piz Paket von dem Quell-RPM zu erstellen.
Wenn Ihr System entweder mit einer ATI Radeon R500 oder R600 Grafikkarte ausgestattet ist, wird
firstboot nach der Installation nicht laufen. Das System geht direkt zum grafischen Login-Schirm
und überspringt firstboot vollständig. Wenn Sie versuchen, firstboot manuell auszuführen,
z.B. von einem Failsafe T erminal aus, wird die X-Session abstürzen.
Dieses Problem wird hervorgerufen durch den von der ATI Radeon R500/R600 Hardware genutzten
T reiber. Der von diesen Grafikkarten genutzte Standard-T reiber ist noch in der
T echnologievorschau. Für eine provisorische Lösung sichern Sie Ihre /etc/X11/xorg.conf Datei,
und konfigurieren anschließend X, um stattdessen den unterstützten T reibervesa zu verwenden.
Führen Sie dafür den folgenden Befehl aus:
system -config-display --reconfig --set-driver=vesa
Sie können nun firstboot ausführen. Um zu Ihren alten Einstellungen zurückzukehren, stellen Sie
die ursprüngliche /etc/X11/xorg.conf Datei wieder her.
Wenn Ihr System den T SC T imer verwendet, kann der Systemaufruf gettim eofday
zurückspringen. Dies liegt an einem Überlauf Problem, das in einigen Fällen zu einem deutlichen
vorwärtsspringen des T SC T imers führt. In diesem Fall wird der T SC T imer sich zwar selbst
korrigieren, aber letztendlich eine Rückwärts-Verschiebung der Z eit registrieren.
Dieses Problem ist besonders kritisch für zeitsensible Systeme, wie z.B. die von Datenbanken und
T ransaktionssystemen verwendeten. Falls Ihr System auf präzise Z eitberechnung angewiesen ist,
empfiehlt Red Hat daher dringend, den Kernel auf die Verwendung eines anderen T imers (z.B.
HPET ) umzustellen.

Das Laptop Modell IBM T41 tritt nicht ordnungsgemäß in denSuspend Mode ein, daher wird der
Suspend Mode weiterhin Akkulaufzeit verbrauchen wie im normalen Betrieb. Dies rührt daher, dass
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 noch nicht das radeonfb Modul enthält.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 kann das Anwachsen und Schrumpfen eines zugrundeliegendene
Blockgeräts im Live-Betrieb ermitteln. Allerdings gibt es keine Möglichkeit, automatisch festzustellen,
dass ein Gerät seine Größe verändert hat. Also sind manuelle Schritte nötig, um dies zu erkennen,
und die Größe jeglicher Dateisysteme auf den fraglichen Geräten anzupassen. Wenn ein Blockgerät
mit geänderter Größe gefunden wird, erscheint eine Meldung ähnlich der folgenden in der SystemProtokolldatei:
VFS: busy inodes on changed media or resized disk sdi
Wenn das Blockgerät angewachsen ist, dann kann diese Meldung problemlos ignoriert werden.
43
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
Wenn allerdings das Blockgerät geschrumpft wurde, ohne dass zuvor die auf dem Blockgerät
enthaltenen Daten verkleinert wurden, dann sind die auf dem Gerät enthaltenen Daten womöglich
fehlerhaft.
Es ist nur möglich, eine Größenveränderung im Live-Betrieb für ein Dateisystems vorzunehmen,
wenn dieses auf der gesamten LUN (oder Blockgerät) erstellt wurde. Falls es eine Partitionstabelle
auf dem Blockgerät gibt, dann muss das Dateisystem abgehängt werden, damit die Partitionstabelle
aktualisiert werden kann.
Falls Ihr System ein GFS2 Dateisystem angehängt hat, könnte ein Knoten hängenbleiben, wenn von
einem Knoten auf eine zwischengespeicherte Inode zugegriffen wird, die von einem anderen Knoten
abgetrennt wird. Falls dies auftritt, ist der aufgehängte Knoten solange nicht verfügbar, bis Sie ihn
abgrenzen und wiederherstellen mit der normalen Vorgangsweise zur Cluster-Wiederherstellung.
Diese Funktion ruft gfs2_dinode_dealloc und shrink_dcache_m em ory auf, und wird auch in
den vom Stapel hinterlassenen Spuren von jedem Prozess erscheinen, der in dem aufgehängten
Knoten steckte.
Dieses Problem betrifft nicht GFS2 Dateisysteme mit nur einem Knoten.

Das Verwenden des swap --grow Parameters in einer Kickstart-Datei, ohne dabei gleichzeitig den

In Systemen mit weniger als 2 GB physikalischem Speicher, beträgt die verhängte Grenze das
Doppelte der Größe des physikalischen Speichers. In Systemen mit mehr als 2 GB entspricht die

T he gfs2_convert program may not free up all blocks from the GFS metadata that are no longer
used under GFS2. T hese unused metadata blocks will be discovered and freed the next time
gfs2_fsck is run on the file system. It is recommended that gfs2_fsck be run after the filesystem
has been converted to free the unused blocks. T hese unused blocks will be flagged by gfs2_fsck
with messages such as:
Ondisk and fsck bitmaps differ at block 137 (0x89)
Ondisk status is 1 (Data) but FSCK thinks it should be 0 (Free)
Metadata type is 0 (free)
T hese messages do not indicate corruption in the GFS2 file system, they indicate blocks that should
have been freed, but were not. T he number of blocks needing to be freed will vary depending on the
size of the file system and block size. Many file systems will not encounter this issue at all. Large file
systems may have a small number of blocks (typically less than 100).

SIEVE support
Description:
79
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
The cyrus-imapd package contains the core of the Cyrus IMAP server.
It is a scaleable enterprise mail system designed for use from
small to large enterprise environments using standards-based
internet mail technologies.
A full Cyrus IMAP implementation allows a seamless mail and bulletin
board environment to be set up across multiple servers. It differs from
other IMAP server implementations in that it is run on "sealed"
servers, where users are not normally permitted to log in and have no
system account on the server. The mailbox database is stored in parts
of the filesystem that are private to the Cyrus IMAP server. All user
access to mail is through software using the IMAP, POP3 or KPOP
protocols. It also includes support for virtual domains, NNTP,
mailbox annotations, and much more. The private mailbox database design
gives the server large advantages in efficiency, scalability and
administratability. Multiple concurrent read/write connections to the
same mailbox are permitted. The server supports access control lists on
mailboxes and storage quotas on mailbox hierarchies.
The Cyrus IMAP server supports the IMAP4rev1 protocol described
in RFC 3501. IMAP4rev1 has been approved as a proposed standard.
It supports any authentication mechanism available from the SASL
library, imaps/pop3s/nntps (IMAP/POP3/NNTP encrypted using SSL and
TLSv1) can be used for security. The server supports single instance
store where possible when an email message is addressed to multiple
recipients, SIEVE provides server side email filtering.

many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more
configurable.
FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the
RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There
are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins,
and
more. Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network
to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has
to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

custom container classes around each core object. Most Java2 APIs are
significantly easier to use because of the Collections API.
However, there are certain holes left unfilled by Sun's
implementations, and the Jakarta-Commons Collections Component strives
to fulfill them. Among the features of this package are:
- special-purpose implementations of Lists and Maps for fast access
- adapter classes from Java1-style containers (arrays, enumerations) to
Java2-style collections.
- methods to test or create typical set-theory properties of collections
such as union, intersection, and closure.

Description:
113
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
LAM (Local Area Multicomputer) is an Message-Passing Interface (MPI)
programming environment and development system for heterogeneous
computers on a network. With LAM/MPI, a dedicated cluster or an
existing network computing infrastructure can act as one parallel
computer to solve one problem. LAM/MPI is considered to be "cluster
friendly" because it offers daemon-based process startup/control as
well as fast client-to-client message passing protocols. LAM/MPI can
use TCP/IP and/or shared memory for message passing (different RPMs
are supplied for this -- see the main LAM website at
http://www.mpi.nd.edu/lam/ for details).<
LAM features a full implementation of MPI version 1 (with the
exception that LAM does not support cancelling of sends), and much of
version 2. Compliant applications are source code portable between LAM
and any other implementation of MPI. In addition to meeting the
standard, LAM/MPI offers extensive monitoring capabilities to support
debugging. Monitoring happens on two levels: On one level, LAM/MPI has
the hooks to allow a snapshot of a process and message status to be
taken at any time during an application run. The status includes all
aspects of synchronization plus datatype map/signature, communicator
group membership and message contents (see the XMPI application on the
main LAM website). On the second level, the MPI library can produce a
cumulative record of communication, which can be visualized either at
runtime or post-mortem.

mkinitrd-5.1.19.6-19 - mkinitrd-5.1.19.6-4 4
Group: System Environm ent/Base
Summary: Creates an initial ram disk im age for preloading m odules.
Description:
Mkinitrd creates filesystem images for use as initial ramdisk (initrd)
images. These ramdisk images are often used to preload the block
device modules (SCSI or RAID) needed to access the root filesystem.
In other words, generic kernels can be built without drivers for any
SCSI adapters which load the SCSI driver as a module. Since the
kernel needs to read those modules, but in this case it isn't able to
address the SCSI adapter, an initial ramdisk is used. The initial
ramdisk is loaded by the operating system loader (normally LILO) and
is available to the kernel as soon as the ramdisk is loaded. The
ramdisk image loads the proper SCSI adapter and allows the kernel to
mount the root filesystem. The mkinitrd program creates such a
ramdisk using information found in the /etc/modules.conf file.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 5.3 Release Notes
SpamAssassin provides you with a way to reduce if not completely
eliminate
Unsolicited Commercial Email (SPAM) from your incoming email. It can
be invoked by a MDA such as sendmail or postfix, or can be called from
a procmail script, .forward file, etc. It uses a genetic-algorithm
evolved scoring system to identify messages which look spammy, then
adds headers to the message so they can be filtered by the user's mail
reading software. This distribution includes the spamd/spamc components
which create a server that considerably speeds processing of mail.
To enable spamassassin, if you are receiving mail locally, simply add
this line to your ~/.procmailrc:
INCLUDERC=/etc/mail/spamassassin/spamassassin-default.rc
To filter spam for all users, add that line to /etc/procmailrc
(creating if necessary).
