CentOS Plus kernel features

Post by freethinker » 2012/02/15 23:28:03

Hello.

Where can I find a changelog for the centos6-plus kernel?
I would like to compare the changes to the stock kernel.

Thanks,
D

It is actually part of the package.

[code]
[b]rpm -q --changelog [/b][i]<installed_package>[/i]
[b]rpm -qp --changelog [/b][i]<not_installed_package>[/i]
[/code]

Or, if you don't want to download the whole thing to find out, install the yum-plugin-changelog package and then run

[code]
yum --enablerepo=centosplus changelog all kernel-2.6.32-220.4.2.el6.centos.plus | less
[/code]

If you need more detailed info, the best place to look is this [url=http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=4586]CentOS bug entry[/url] ( Tracking for centosplus kernels for CentOS-6 ).

Thanks team.

I know about *that* changelog.
I meant a side-by-side diff between the stock kernel vs plus.
What modules were added, etc.

I guess I'll just read through the lists and see what stands out.

Thanks

How about having both kernels installed and then --

[code]
[b]sdiff -s /boot/config-[/b]foo[b] /boot/config-[/b]phoo | less
[/code]
Perhaps that will be more like what you wish to see?

Then comparing the config file may be the easiest to see which modules are enabled in the cplus kernel. I posted a diff file [url=http://centos.toracat.org/kernel/centos6/centosplus-testing/configs/diff-config-2.6.32-220.4.2.el6.x86_64.txt]here[/url] for the latest C6 kernel.

[EDIT] The moment I was uploading the file, [b]Alan[/b] was suggesting just that. :-o
