Installation Related Notes

The following section includes information specific to installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the Anaconda installation program.


In order to upgrade an already-installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 system to Update 3, you must use Red Hat Network to update those packages that have changed.

You may use Anaconda to perform a fresh installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 or to perform an upgrade from the latest updated version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

  • If you are copying the contents of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 CD-ROMs (in preparation for a network-based installation, for example) be sure you copy the CD-ROMs for the operating system only. Do not copy the Extras CD-ROM, or any of the layered product CD-ROMs, as this will overwrite files necessary for Anaconda's proper operation.

    These CD-ROMs must be installed after Red Hat Enterprise Linux has been installed.

  • The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 installation program terminates with the error "install exited abnormally -- received signal 11" early in the installation process if a Sony PCGA-CD51 external PCMCIA CD-ROM drive is connected.

    There are two workarounds for this issue:

    1. If you are using the drive as the installation source, add the following options at the installation boot prompt:

      pci=off ide1=0x180,0x386
    2. If you are not using the drive as the install source, either disconnect it before attempting the installation or add the following option at the installation boot prompt:

  • Installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 is known to have an issue with USB peripherals on IBM® BladeCenter® HS20-8832 systems.

    To avoid this issue, you must perform either of two actions:

    • Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 for AMD64 and Intel® EM64T platforms

    • If you are installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 for the x86 architecture, you must first move the USB IRQ from line #7 to another available IRQ line. This will prevent stray interrupts from disrupting the USB device and the installation of the OS. Consult your hardware vendor for more information about changing IRQ lines in your system.

General Information

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

  • The InfiniBand Architecture (IBA) is an industry standard that defines a new high-speed, switched fabric subsystem designed to connect processor nodes and I/O nodes to form a system area network. This new interconnect method transitions from a local transaction-based I/O model across buses to a remote message-passing model across channels.

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 includes a technology preview release of the upstream InfiniBand network and clustering software implementation.

    Note that this technology preview release is not supported for use in production environments, and that the OpenIB InfiniBand interfaces and APIs are subject to change during the technology preview phase. Not all of the InfiniBand upper layer protocols are implemented in the current upstream OpenIB project. As more upper layer protocols are implemented by the OpenIB group, a fully supported release of the OpenIB InfiniBand network/clustering stack is planned.

    InfiniBand technologies implemented via new or updated packages in this preview are as follows:

    • kernel — Low level driver support for Mellanox based host controllers are included. The core InfiniBand modules are also included, which provide the interface between the low level hardware driver and the upper layer InfiniBand protocol drivers and also provide user space access to InfiniBand hardware. Also included are the Sockets Direct Protocol (SDP) upper layer kernel driver, the IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB) TCP/IP networking protocol driver, and the SCSI Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) protocol driver.

    • udev - Minor modifications were made to know where to place the new InfiniBand device files

    • initscripts — Added a new ifup-ib network script to enable using IPoIB networking at boot time.

    • module-init-tools — Minor modifications were made to support the new SDP socket protocol and IPoIB interfaces

    • libibverbs — A library that provides direct user space access to the RDMA verbs capabilities of InfiniBand hardware. Developers who want to program to the verbs interface can program to the libibverbs API and, as new hardware support is added, their application will require no modifications.

    • libmthca — A low level hardware driver library that plugs into libibverbs and actually communicates with the hardware on behalf of libibverbs. Support for future hardware will be implemented as additional libraries.

    • libsdp — An LD_PRELOAD supported library that allows users to cause their existing TCP/IP network applications to use SDP instead without the need to recompile their application

    • opensm — The Open Subnet Manager. At least one machine in any InfiniBand network must be running a subnet manager in order to configure the low level hardware link routing. This is usually left running as a system daemon to handle reconfiguration of the subnet fabric on link status change events.

    • udapl — The User Direct Access Programming Library is a high level user space RDMA programming environment. The uDAPL library allows applications to take advantage of RDMA protocols without having to be aware of how to program the RDMA capable hardware. The uDAPL specification is not InfiniBand specific, and in the future should support RDMA hardware other than InfiniBand, such as RDMA enabled 10-Gigabit Ethernet controllers.

      To use the udapl library, you must make sure that the file is in the path. This can accomplished by adding the following line to the /etc/ file:


      Additionally, by default, the system parameters are set to allow only a minimum amount of memory to be locked down by user-mode applications, such as uDAPL. To increase this limit, you must modify the parameters in /etc/security/limits.conf to increase the amount of memory allowed for memlock.

      For example, on a system with 1 gigabytes of memory, a system administrator may allow 1 gigabyte to be locked down via memlock. To allow this, the administrator would add the following in the /etc/security/limits.conf file.

      *                hard    memlock          1000000
      *                soft    memlock          1000000

    For more information on InfiniBand technologies, refer to the Red Hat Knowledgebase at the following URL:

  • There is a change in the behavior of /etc/issue and /etc/ in the redhat-release package, such that user-customized versions of these files are not moved to a new filename (/etc/issue.rpmsave and /etc/, respectively) when redhat-release is updated.

    Because of the triggers that exist in previous redhat-release RPMs, the change in behavior will not take effect when the package is first updated. What will happen is that the new /etc/issue and /etc/ files from the updated redhat-release package will be saved as they are on disk and any previously customized /etc/issue and /etc/ files will get moved to /etc/issue.rpmsave and /etc/, respectively. Users must reapply their customizations to these files one time. After reapplying their customizations to the files, subsequent upgrades will update as expected without such user intervention.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 supports a new feature to access z/VM hypervisor commands (CP commands) using a new Linux kernel module called vmcp.ko and a new tool called vmcp. This new feature allows Linux guests to be managed running under z/VM out of a z/VM guest running a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 image.

  • DebugInfo packages provide full debugging symbol binaries for individual package libraries so that system analysis tools and profilers can fully debug and trace applications. DebugInfo packages install these binaries in the directory /usr/lib/debuginfo.

    With the -debuginfo RPMs installed, users are able to fully take advantage of the following deep analysis tools:

    • Program debugging with gdb

    • kernel core dump debugging with crash

    • performance analysis and profiling with systemtap and oprofile

    DebugInfo packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 are available from the Red Hat FTP site at the following URLs:
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 includes a technology preview release of Frysk, a new execution analysis framework. Users are encouraged to find more information and provide feedback on the technology preview at the Frysk project web site:

    Note that this technology preview release of Frysk is not supported for use in production environments, and that Frysk interfaces and APIs are subject to change during the technology preview phase. A fully supported release of Frysk is planned for future releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Kernel Notes

This section contains notes relating to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 kernel.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 includes the largesmp kernel package for 64-bit platforms. In order to preserve the kernel application binary interface (kabi) in current supported kernels, Red Hat introduces a new kernel package called kernel-largesmp-2.6.9-xxx.EL.yyy.rpm.

    xxx specifies the kernel version, while yyy specifies the platform name, which is one of the following 3 platforms: x86_64, ia64, ppc64.

    The largesmp kernel on AMD64 and Intel® EM64T platforms increases support of CPUs from 8 to 64.

    A technology preview of the largesmp kernel is also available for both Itanium2 and POWER architectures, increasing the theoretical CPU limits to 128 on POWER and 512 on Itanium2. Because it is a technology preview, the largesmp kernels on POWER and Itanium2 are not supported in production environments. Note that 9 to 64 CPUs are already supported in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 2 in the kernel-smp-2.6.9-xxx.EL and kernel-hugemem-2.6.9-xxx.EL packages.

    With successful partner collaboration and testing of the largesmp kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3, the supported and certifiable CPU limits for AMD64/EM64T, Itanium2, and POWER will increase in future releases.

    For more information on largesmp kernel support, refer to the Red Hat KnowledgeBase at the following URL:

  • The largesmp kernels introduced in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 support up to 128GB of memory.

  • Files and directories have permission sets for the owner of the file, the group associated with the file, and all other users for the system. However, these permission sets have limitations. For example, different permissions cannot be configured for different users. To address this need, Access Control Lists (ACLs) were implemented.

    The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 kernel provides ACL support for the ext3 file system and NFS file systems. ACLs are now recognized on ext3 file systems accessed via Samba.

    Along with support in the kernel, the acl package is required to implement ACLs. The acl package contains the utilities used to add, modify, remove, and retrieve ACL information.

    Refer to Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Administrator's Guide for more information on supported utilities and usage.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 adds error detection and correction (EDAC) functionality for x86 and x86_64 systems. The kernel, on supported chipsets, can now detect and report ECC single bit errors, and report and panic on multi-bit errors.

    The behavior of the kernel is controlled by /proc/sys/kernel/panic_on_unrecovered_nmi; and the default value is set to "1". If an unrecoverable ECC error or unknown non-maskable interrupt (NMI) is detected and the value of /proc/sys/kernel/panic_on_unrecovered_nmi is set to "1", then the kernel will panic and halt the system. This is the default behavior.

    The hardware autodetect program automatically detects and loads the appropriate EDAC kernel modules during installation or upgrade. Upon successful loading of the modules, some kernel messages will be saved in the message log file. To disable autodetect, refer to the Red Hat Knowledgebase for instructions.

    While EDAC kernel modules are loaded, the kernel provides control interfaces to perform debugging and logging at run-time via /proc/sys/mc and directory assistance via the /proc/mc directory.

    If the EDAC kernel modules are loaded, then the kernel provides control interfaces to perform debugging and logging at run-time via /proc/sys/mc and directory assistance via the /proc/mc directory.

    The EDAC code in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and the code it is based on provide statistics via /proc. As part of the merger and acceptance of this code into the base kernel, this interface will change to use sysfs. Customers should expect future Red Hat Enterprise product lines to adopt the sysfs interface instead.

    For more information on EDAC support, refer to the Red Hat Knowledgebase at the following URL:

  • Kernel Key Management support was a new feature included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 2. However, due to on-going development efforts, be advised that Kernel Key Management is a technology preview and that the key management interfaces can and will undergo further development in subsequent Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 updates. Because Kernel Key Management is a technology preview, it is not supported for production environments.

Changes to Drivers and Hardware Support

This update includes bug fixes for a number of drivers. The more significant driver updates are listed below.

  • The following device drivers are added or updated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3:

    • added support for Marvell Yukon 2 chipset in sky2 driver

    • added support for SysKonnect's SK-9E21, SK-9S21 chipset in sky2 driver

    • added support for LSI Logic MegaRAID Serial Attached SCSI (megaraid_sas) driver

    • incorporated Broadcom NetXtreme II (bnx2) network driver with support for BCM5706 and BCM5708

    • added support for HT1000 chipset in serverworks driver

    • added support for HT2000 chipset in serverworks driver

    • updated Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel (lpfc) driver

    • updated Intel(R) PRO/1000 (e1000) networking driver

    • updated HP Smart Array (cciss) driver

    • updated LSI Logic MPT Fusion driver

    • updated QLogic Fibre Channel (qla2xxx) driver

    • updated Adaptec RAID (aacraid) driver

    • updated Broadcom Tigon 3 (tg3) network driver

    • various SATA driver updates

  • The SysKonnect Yukon II (sky2) driver is now available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3. It only supports hardware that is not supported by the sk98lin driver in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3. Note that the current version of the sky2 driver is known to perform poorly if autonegotiation is disabled.

  • Support for fabric rediscovery through sysfs is now available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3. For the Qlogic (qla2xxx) and Emulex (lpfc) Fibre Channel HBA drivers, run the following commands to perform redisocvery and rescan for new storage:

    echo "1" > /sys/class/fc_host/hostXYZ/issue_lip
    echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/hostXYZ/scan

    Where XYZ is the scsi host number of your HBA.

  • The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 release notes mentioned several issues related to the Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel driver (lpfc). All of these issues (related to cable pulls, rmmod and insmod) were fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 1. The lpfc driver was included in the upstream Linux 2.6 kernel shortly after Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 shipped. Red Hat fully supports the lpfc driver, and is committed to maintaining the driver as long as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is supported.

  • In some Fibre Channel configurations, an operating system will automatically detect the addition of a new target device while the system is running. In other configurations, it is necessary to issue the following command to detect a new target device:

    echo 1 > /sys/class/fc_host/hostn/issue_lip

    Where hostn corresponds to the appropriate adapter.

    When a new Logical Unit is created on a particular target, a command such as the following is required to detect and configure it:

    echo "b t l" > /sys/class/scsi_host/hostn/scan

    Where b is the bus, t is the target, and l is the LUN to be scanned on hostn.

    Wild cards can also be used, such as the following example:

    echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host2/scan

    Note that the device name (such as /dev/sdb) that is assigned when a device is added dynamically while the system is running may be different from the device name assigned the next time the system boots.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 3 includes support for scanning past LUN 0 when a target returns a peripheral qualifier of 3 for LUN 0. For SCSI 3 and higher devices, the scsi layer will attempt a REPORT_LUNS command, and for SCSI 2 devices the scsi layer will perform a sequential scan for LUNs 1 to 7.

    To modify the scanning behavior, users can add entries to the scsi device_info table through the procfs interface located at /proc/scsi/device_info or through the scsi_mod module parameters. The format for the entry is dev_flags=vendor:model:flags[,v:m:f] where flags can be the following integer values:

    0x001   /* Only scan LUN 0 */
    0x002   /* Known to have LUNs, force scanning, deprecated: Use max_luns=N */
    0x004   /* Flag for broken handshaking */
    0x008   /* unlock by special command */
    0x010   /* Do not use LUNs in parallel */
    0x020   /* Buggy Tagged Command Queuing */
    0x040   /* Non consecutive LUN numbering */
    0x080   /* Avoid LUNS >= 5 */
    0x100   /* Treat as (removable) CD-ROM */
    0x200   /* LUNs past 7 on a SCSI-2 device */
    0x400   /* override additional length field */
    0x800   /* ... for broken inquiry responses */
    0x1000  /* do not do automatic start on add */
    0x2000  /* do not send ms page 0x08 */
    0x4000  /* do not send ms page 0x3f */
    0x8000  /* use 10 byte ms before 6 byte ms */
    0x10000 /*  192 byte ms page 0x3f request */
    0x20000 /* try REPORT_LUNS even for SCSI-2 devs (if HBA supports more than 8 LUNs) */
    0x40000 /* don't try REPORT_LUNS scan (SCSI-3 devs) */
    0x80000 /* don't use PREVENT-ALLOW commands */
    0x100000 /* device is actually for RAID config */
    0x200000 /* select without ATN */
    0x400000 /* retry HARDWARE_ERROR */

    For example, to scan past LUN 7 for a SCSI 2 device from vendor Linux with model scsi_debug, execute the following command:

    echo Linux:scsi_debug:200 > /proc/scsi/device_info


    modprobe scsi_mod dev_flags=Linux:scsi_debug:200

    The module parameter can also be added to /etc/modprobe.conf so that it can be used at system boot-up:

    options scsi_mod dev_flags=Linux:scsi_debug:200
