Scientific Linux 3.0.4 Release Notes

The following topics are covered in this document:

  • Changes to the Scientific Linux installation program (Anaconda)
  • General information
  • Kernel-related information
  • Changes to drivers and hardware support
  • Changes to packages

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The following section includes information specific to the Scientific Linux installation program, Anaconda.

Note

In order to upgrade an already-installed Scientific Linux 3.0.x system to 3.0.4, you must use yum or apt to update those packages that have changed. The use of Anaconda to upgrade to 3.0.4 is not supported.

Use Anaconda only to perform a fresh install of Scientific Linux 3.0.4.

Introduction

This section contains general information not specific to any other section of this document.

  • We strongly recommends that you disable USB legacy support in your BIOS. It has been discovered that, on some machines, failure to do so can result in symptoms ranging from loss of keyboard or mouse to crashes up to a day after boot.
  • Additions to Kerberos for Scientific Linux 3.0.4 include:
    • Client libraries will retransmit a request over TCP if that request, when sent over UDP, elicited a KRB_ERR_RESPONSE_TOO_BIG error from a KDC.
    • Libraries now support RC4 cipher suites.
    • Applications can now access keytab files using the "WRFILE:" access method.
  • Scientific Linux 3.0.4 now includes Mailman, an electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists system. Mailman is integrated with the Web, making it easy for users to manage their accounts and for list owners to administer their lists. Mailman supports built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, content filtering, digest delivery, spam filters, and more.

Changes to the Scientific Linux Installation Program (Anaconda)

This section contains information related to the Scientific Linux 3.0.4 kernel.

  • The assignment of device names in Scientific Linux is based on two variables:
    • PCI device ordering (which controls the order in which kernel modules load)
    • Kernel module load order (which controls device name assignment)

Therefore, hardware reconfiguration (which could change PCI device ordering) and software changes (which could affect module load order) can impact device name assignment. This could, for example, cause a storage device originally named /dev/sda to become /dev/sdt.

One way of controlling device name assignment is to start the Scientific Linux installation process by booting the installation media with the "noprobe" boot-time option. You can then select the modules required by your hardware in the desired order, thereby controlling device name assignment. Subsequent reboots will maintain the same module load order.

  • The release notes for Scientific Linux 3.0.3 contained information related to Exec-Shield. This information was not entirely accurate; the corrected information appears below.

    The Scientific Linux 3.0.4 kernel includes a new security feature known as Exec-Shield. Exec-Shield is a security-enhancing modification to the Linux kernel that makes large parts of specially-marked programs -- including their stack -- not executable. This can reduce the potential damage of some security holes, such as buffer overflow exploits.

    Exec-Shield can also randomize the virtual memory addresses at which certain binaries are loaded. This randomized VM mapping makes it more difficult for a malicious application to improperly access code or data based on knowledge of the code or data's virtual address.

    Exec-Shield's behavior can be controlled via the proc file system. Two files are used:

    • /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield
    • /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield-randomize

    The /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield file controls overall Exec-Shield functionality, and can be manipulated using the following command:

    echo > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield

    Where is one of the following:

    • 0 -- Exec-Shield (including randomized VM mapping) is disabled for all binaries, marked or not
    • 1 -- Exec-Shield is enabled for all marked binaries

    The default value for /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield is 1.

    The /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield-randomize file controls whether Exec-Shield randomizes VM mapping, and can be manipulated using the following command:

    echo > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield-randomize

    Where is one of the following:
    • 0 -- Randomized VM mapping is disabled
    • 1 -- Randomized VM mapping is enabled

    The default value for /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield-randomize is 1.

    It is also possible to configure Exec-Shield by including one (or both) of the following lines in the /etc/sysctl.conf file:

    kernel.exec-shield= kernel.exec-shield-randomize=

    (Where is as previously described.)

    Exec-Shield can also be disabled at a system level by means of a kernel boot option. Appending the following parameter to the "kernel" line(s) in the /etc/grub.conf file will disable Exec-Shield:

    exec-shield=0
    Note

    Exec-Shield functionality is available only to binaries that have been built (and marked) using the toolchain (compiler, assembler, linker) available with Scientific Linux 3.0.x. Binaries that have been built using a different version of the toolchain can still be used, but since they will not be marked, they will not take advantage of Exec-Shield.

    Application developers should keep in mind that, in the majority of cases, GCC correctly marks its generated code as being capable of using Exec-Shield. In the few instances (usually caused by inline assembler or other nonportable code) where GCC non-optimally (or, more rarely, incorrectly) marks generated code, it is possible to pass GCC options to obtain the desired result.

    The options controlling binary marking at the assembler level are:

    -Wa,--execstack -Wa,--noexecstack

    The options controlling binary marking at the linker level are:

    -Wl,-z,execstack -Wl,-z,noexecstack

    It is also possible to exert more fine-grained control by explicitly disabling Exec-Shield for a specific binary at run time. This is done using the setarch command:

    setarch i386

    (Where represents the binary to be run.) The binary is then run without Exec-Shield functionality.

    The proc file /proc/self/maps can be used to observe Exec-Shield's effects. By using cat to display the current process's VM mapping, you can see Exec-Shield at work. Similarly, you can use setarch in conjunction with cat to see how normal VM mapping differs from Exec-Shield's mapping.

General Information

This update includes bug fixes for a number of drivers. The more significant driver updates are listed below. In some cases, the original driver has been preserved under a different name, and is available as a non-default alternative for organizations that wish to migrate their driver configuration to the latest versions at a later time.

Note

The migration to the latest drivers should be completed before the next Scientific Linux update is applied, because in most cases only one older-revision driver will be preserved for each update.

These release notes also indicate which older-revision drivers have been removed from this kernel update. These drivers have the base driver name with the revision digits appended; for example, megaraid_2002.o. You must remove these drivers from /etc/modules.conf before installing this kernel update.

Keep in mind that the only definitive way to determine what drivers are being used is to review the contents of /etc/modules.conf. Use of the lsmod command is not a substitute for examining this file.

Adaptec RAID (aacraid driver)

  • The aacraid driver has been updated from 1.1.5-2339 to 1.1.5-2361
  • The new driver is scsi/aacraid/aacraid.o
  • An older driver has been preserved as addon/aacraid_10102/aacraid_10102.o

LSI Logic RAID (megaraid driver)

  • The megaraid2 driver has been updated from v2.10.6 to 2.10.8.2-RH1
  • The new driver is scsi/megaraid2.o
  • The older driver has been preserved as addon/megaraid_2106/megaraid_2106.o
  • The v2.10.1.1 driver has been removed

IBM ServeRAID (ips driver)

  • The ips driver has been updated from 7.00.15 to 7.10.18
  • The new driver is scsi/ips.o
  • The older driver has been preserved as addon/ips_70015/ips_70015.o
  • The ips version 6.11.07 driver has been removed

LSI Logic MPT Fusion (mpt* drivers)

  • These drivers have been updated from 2.05.16 to 2.05.16.02
  • The new drivers are located in message/fusion/
  • The older drivers have been preserved in addon/fusion_20511/ and addon/fusion_20505/

Compaq SA53xx Controllers (cciss driver)

  • The cciss driver has undergone a minor update from v2.4.52.RH1 to 2.4.52.RH2

QLogic Fibre Channel (qla2xxx driver)

  • These drivers have been updated from 7.00.03-RH1 to 7.01.01
  • The new drivers are located in addon/qla2200/
  • The older drivers have been preserved in addon/qla2200_70003RH1/
  • The 6.07.02-RH2 drivers have been removed
Note

The Fabric Device Management Interface (FDMI) is disabled by default in the 7.01.01 driver. It can be enabled by setting the "ql2xfdmienable" module parameter to 1. However, note that some Fibre Channel switches require updates to allow them to work with FDMI. Therefore, make sure you contact your switch vendor before enabling FDMI.

The QLA2100 adapter has been retired by QLogic. This adapter is no longer supported by QLogic. Therefore, the driver is located in the kernel-unsupported package.

Emulex Fibre Channel (lpfc driver)
  • The lpfc driver has been updated from 7.0.3. to 7.1.8
  • The new driver is located in addon/lpfc/
  • The older driver has been preserved in addon/lpfc_703/
Intel PRO/1000 (e1000 driver)
  • The e1000 driver has been updated from 5.2.52-k1 to 5.3.19-k2
Intel PRO/100 (e100 driver)
  • The e100 driver has been updated from 2.3.43-k1 to 3.0.27-k2
Broadcom Tigon3 (tg3 driver)
  • The tg3 driver has been updated from v3.6RH to 3.10RH
PCnet32 and PCnetPCI (pcnet32 driver)
  • The pcnet32 driver has been updated to v1.30c

iSCSI Software Initiator (iscsi_sfnet driver)

This iSCSI initiator driver and user-mode utilities have been added to Scientific Linux 3.0.4. This software is based on the Cisco SourceForge project at:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-iscsi/

The code in this update is based on the 3.6.2 SourceForge release. (The driver in this update identifies itself as 3.6.1, but this is identical to the 3.6.2 driver.)

The iscsi-initiator-utils package contains the user-mode utilities.

The following information should be noted when using this version of the iSCSI initiator:

  • Only disk devices are supported. Other device types, such as tapes, have not been tested. In particular, disk devices from Network Appliance and EMC (Celerra) have been tested with the iSCSI initiator.
  • Booting from iSCSI is not supported. There is also no support for iSCSI in Anaconda.
  • You must set up /etc/iscsi.conf before using iSCSI. Refer to /usr/share/doc/iscsi-initiator-utils-3.6.2/README and the iscsi.conf, iscsi-ls, and iscsid man pages for for information on how to set up and use iSCSI.
  • The DataDigest feature should not be enabled in iscsi.conf. This is because the current driver may incorrectly report data digest errors when there is a large amount of file system I/O.
  • The SLP directory service is not supported.
