What's Not So New
|02/20/2004: ||Version 0.8 released. The main enhancement
is that it now handles requests for filesystem information, so utilities like df will work. The
2.6 version has a fix for a change in the 2.6.3 code that can cause submount to hang in some
circumstances. Changes were made to the 2.4 version that will cause submount to exit faster when
a fs=auto access fails. A spec file and Debian control files are now included with the 2.6 version.
|01/20/2004: ||Packages added for the Fedora Core 1 updated kernel
||Version 0.7 released. This version includes a workaround for a fairly serious bug in the 2.6
kernel series (call_usermodehelper returns spurious values when called synchronously). Other
changes include better reporting of errors to syslog. If you are using the 2.6 version, you
should upgrade. If you are using the 2.4 version and you are having no problems, there is
no need to do so. Debian control files are now part of the standard 2.4 package. Hopefully,
Debian packaging can be taken over by a real Debian maintainer.(hint hint)|
||Packages for kernels with the recent security update are available for the following
distributions: Debian Sarge (2.4.23), Fedora Core 1 (2.4.22-1.2149.nptl), Mandrake 9.2 (2.4.22-26mdk)
Redhat Enterprise Linux 3 (2.4.21-4.0.2.EL), and Slackware 9.1 (2.4.24).|
