uname26 for RHEL7
September 02, 2014 12:31PM
Has anyone used the uname26 mentioned as work around for 7.1 client install on Linux using 3.x kernel instead of 2.6.x kernel?

Link discussing use of uname26 is at Symantec:

However, it leaves you hanging on exactly what uname26 is or where you would get it.

I found references to it for RHEL6 in kernel-rt/MRG bugs but didn’t find what package would actually let me install it. I didn’t find anything other than that on RedHat’s site and nothing regarding RHEL7 in relation to it.

I did finally find a site with the source code and makefile for uname26 and was able to download and make it. Running “uname –a” without it shows my 3.x kernel for RHEL7. Running “uname26 uname -2” shows a 2.6.50.x kernel instead.

We’re about to test the work around using that but I’m wondering if anyone found this somewhere in the RHEL7 repositories?

NOTE:
Please do not tell me to use 7.5 instead of 7.1. The document mentions that supports the 3.x kernel but then lists the uname26 with 7.1.04 as workaround and it is the workaround I’m investigating.

uname26 for RHEL7

Thanks. I had seen that and some others for RHEL6 source from rpmseek. Since I already had the source I was just trying to see if anyone had found it from official RHEL repositories.

Its more a curiosity than anything as it appears to be something RedHat knows about but doesn’t really document very well. The mentions I found were about a bug in the kernel-rt they ship but even those don’t specify what bundle or repository includes that.

There appears to be an RPM here for Scientific Linux, which is a RHEL-alike:
