In particular – Oracle UEK, which “claims” to be 2.6.39-xxx, but is actually 3.0.x with a lower version number. Several misbehaviors (or differences) of version 3 can be found. One of them is related to BackupExec. The service would not start on OEL6 with UEK kernels. The cause of it is an incorrect use of a function – getIfAddrs. Everything can be seen in this amazing post.
When using ‘disk show -v’ on a NetApp filer version 7.3.x, following replacement or addition of disk(s), you might see the above mentioned message. It is caused by incorrect disk label – of OnTap version 8, on an OnTap version 7.3.x system. The system cannot handle the incorrect label, and thus – ignores the disk.

As in previous years, the Xen Project had a presence at OSCON again. This year, we did not have our own booth: Citrix donated some space to a number of different open source projects in their Open @ Citrix booth and the Xen Project gladly took this offer. Like in the past, we had volunteers helping out at the booth. I wanted to thank Anil Madhavapeddy, George Dunlap, Ian Campbell, Richard Mortier and Russell Pavlicek for their work.
My name is Julien Grall. I joined the Citrix Open Source team few months ago to work on Xen on ARM with Ian Campbell and Stefano Stabellini. Since Citrix has joined the Linaro Enterprise Group (LEG), I’m also part of the virtualization team which takes care of Xen, KVM and QEMU within Linaro.
SABnzbd is a nice tool. I just replaced my previous nzbget with it, due to its better handling of the obfuscated names in usenet groups. However, on an Atom CPU, the max download speeds did not go over ~5MB/s on a 100Mb/s link. This is rather sad, because nzbget did get the whole ~11MB/s speeds.
This has already been a banner year for the Xen Project. We have already seen the 10th anniversary of the project, the birth of Xen as a Linux Foundation Collaboration Project, and the release of version 4.3 of the Xen Project software. More than that, this is also the first year we are hosting three excellent community events:
Xenproject.org is pleased to announce the release of Xen 4.3.0. The release is available from the download page:
