-Tweaks-
*Note* Non of these tweaks are installed by default. But they can easily be installed by yum or apt if you want them.
SL_afs_no_dynroot
This package removes the -dynroot option from the openafs config
Restarting of afs is needed for this to take effect.
This rpm does not restart afs
SL_tweek_pagecache
For the RedHat kernel 2.4.21-9.EL and above, many people feel that the kernel isn't very responsive on desktops. This tweek changes the pagecache settings. This has been shown to make the kernel seem much more responsive in a desktop enviroment. Values changed to "1 5 10" for /proc/sys/vm/pagecache .
This parameter has three values :
* Minimum percent of memory used for page cache. Default is 1%.
* The initial amount of memory for cache. Default is 15%.
* Maximum percent of memory used for page cache. Default is 100%

Previous "not supported" rpm's merged into main tree.
In previous S.L. releases, there were extra rpm's generated from the source, that was not included in a normal Enterprise release. The vendor finolly decided to include these rpm's in their main release, although they still classify them as not supported.
We have thus merged our not supported repository into our main S.L. tree.
For the list of rpm's that this affects, you can look at the not supported area of S.L. 3.0.2 at
