Changes to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Installation Program (Anaconda)

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


In order to upgrade an already-installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 system to Update 7, you must use Red Hat Network to update those packages that have changed. The use of Anaconda to upgrade to Update 7 is not supported.

Use Anaconda only to perform a fresh install of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7.

  • If you are copying the contents of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 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.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 for the 64-bit Intel® Itanium 2® architecture includes runtime support for 32-bit applications through the use of Intel's IA-32 Execution Layer.

    The IA-32 Execution Layer is provided on the Extras disc for the Intel Itanium 2 architecture. In addition, a set of 32-bit libraries and applications are provided on the main discs of the installation. The IA-32 Execution Layer and 32-bit compatibility packages together provide a runtime environment for 32-bit applications on the 64-bit native distribution.

    To install the IA-32 Execution Layer and required 32-bit compatibility packages, follow these steps:

    NOTE: If you are sure that your Itanium processors have hardware emulation of IA-32, only steps 2-3 are required. If you are unsure, follow all the steps.

    1. During the installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 for the Intel Itanium 2 Architecture, be sure to exclude the compatibility packages. Choose "Customize the set of packages to be installed" and then make these changes to the default packages before continuing. You should not add or remove any other packages at this time.

      • Deselect the Graphical Internet checkbox under the Applications category.

      • Deselect the Compatibility Arch Support checkbox under the System category.

      • Select the MySQL Database checkbox under the Servers category.

      Click Next and complete the installation up to the reboot.

    2. Next, install the ia32el package using either procedure 2a or 2b:

      1. After the first reboot during installation, the graphical FirstBoot wizard is displayed for final configuration and customization. On the last screen of the wizard (the screen with the Extras... button), insert the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 Extras CD, which contains the ia32el package. Click the Extras... button and follow the pop-up wizard to install the ia32el package from the Misc category.

      2. Alternately, after completing the installation, mount the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 Extras CD and manually install the ia32el package. For example:

        cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/
        rpm -ivh ia32el-<version>.ia64.rpm

        where <version> is the version of the ia32el package to be installed.

    3. Start the ia32el service with this command (you must be logged in as root):

      service ia32el start
    4. Verify that ia32el is running with this command:

      service ia32el status
    5. Uninstall the aspell and aspell-config packages, which will otherwise conflict with the compatibility version of aspell:

       rpm -e aspell aspell-config
    6. Next, install the compatibility packages manually. Copy all the .i386.rpm and .i686.rpm packages from the base installation CDs to a local directory. Also copy over the following three ia64 RPMs (which some i386 RPMs depend on) to the same local directory and install them all together.


      At the time these notes were written, the aspell and aspell-config RPMs were located on disc 2, umb-scheme was on disc 3, and all of the i386 and i686 RPMs were on discs 2 and 3. So, in order to copy the files to the local drive and install them, perform the following steps:

      1. Create a directory to copy the packages:

        mkdir ~/rpms
      2. Insert Disc 2 of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 disc (mount if necessary) and copy the packages to the newly-created directory:

        cp -v /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/aspell*ia64.rpm ~/rpms
        cp /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/*.i?86.rpm ~/rpms
      3. Insert Disc 3 of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 disc (mount if necessary) and copy the packages to the newly-created directory:

        cp -v /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/umb-scheme* ~/rpms
        cp /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/*.i?86.rpm ~/rpms
      4. Install the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 packages:

        cd ~/rpms
        rpm -ivh *
    7. To verify the installation of the 32-bit compatibility layer and libraries after installation, check that the /emul directory has been created and contains files.

    8. Install any additional ia64 packages needed, either using the redhat-config-packages graphical tool or manually using the rpm command.

General Information

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

  • 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 3 are available from the Red Hat FTP site at the following URLs:
  • 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.

Kernel-Related Information

This section contains information related to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 kernel.

  • A new /proc sysctl interface is available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7 to enable an improved NUMA-friendly page allocation policy. The default behavior is the same as Update 6, which does not use this policy. To enable the policy, you may choose from the following methods:

    • Run the following command as root:

      echo "1" > /proc/sys/vm/numa_memory_allocator
    • Alternatively, use the sysctl command:

      /sbin/sysctl vm.numa_memory_allocator=1
    • Finally, you can also type the following line in /etc/sysctl.conf:

      vm.numa_memory_allocator = 1

    The improved NUMA-friendly page allocation policy only affects the systems with NUMA capabilities; and the feature is only supported in the x86_64 kernel.

  • A new boot option called nokeyb is included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7. The option disables console keyboard support for IBM blade servers. This option is automatically set for IBM blade servers during bootup.

    When the nokeyb option is enabled, it resolves issues with the pc_keyb: controller jammed (0xA7) error message repeated at the console. This new option also fixes non-IBM systems that rely on a USB keyboard that may not be present at boot.

Changes to Drivers and Hardware Support

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.


The migration to the latest drivers should be completed before the next Red Hat Enterprise 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.

The following device drivers are new or updated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 7:

  • incorporate Dell Remote BIOS Update (dell_rbu) driver version 2.1

  • upgrade SATA support (core, libata, and drivers)

  • update OpenIPMI driver to version 35.11 plus fixes

  • update Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel (lpfc) driver to 7.3.3

    Note: Some of the adapter name strings that are reported in the system log and in the lpfc driver /proc files have been modified to provide more complete and updated descriptions.

  • incorporate MegaRAID Serial Attached SCSI (megaraid_sas) driver version

  • update megaraid2 driver to v2.10.10.1

  • fix megaraid2 rmmod/insmod crash on EM64Ts with >4GB

  • update Adaptec AAC RAID (aacraid) driver to 1.1.5-2412

  • incorporate Broadcom NetXtreme II (bnx2) network driver version 1.4.30

  • update Broadcom Tigon 3 (tg3) network driver to version 3.43RH

  • add support for HT1000 chipset in serverworks driver

  • update Intel(R) PRO/1000 (e1000) network driver to version 6.1.16-k2

  • enable Adaptec SA-1210 interrupts in siimage driver

  • prevent oops in Adaptec aic7xxx driver while adding new devices

  • add printk_ratelimit sysctl to allow I/O errmsg control

  • add support for system-wide IPV4 arp_announce sysctl

  • prevent Compaq SmartArray (cciss) driver unload while diskdump activated

  • Rate limiting has been added for certain SCSI error messages that print when I/O is done to a failed device. This prevents continuous logging of messages when a Fibre Channel cable is unplugged from an active device. There are two sysctl parameters associated with this function:

    • printk_ratelimit: the minimum length of time in seconds between messages that have been designated as rate limited. Default is 0 (rate limiting is off).

    • printk_ratelimit_burst: the number of rate-limited messages that will be allowed to print before rate limiting kicks in. Default is 10.

      This feature can be enabled by the following example command:

      sysctl -w kernel.printk_ratelimit=5
  • On 64-bit architectures, the BLKGETSIZE value is computed incorrectly for md devices larger than 1 TB. This causes utilities such as mke2fs to fail. This is planned to be fixed in a future update.

  • The following drivers were preserved in earlier Update releases. They are no longer needed because the current drivers have been shown to be suitable replacements.

    • 3w-xxxx_10200033

    • ips_70015

    • cmpci_564

    • qla2200_70003RH1

    • qla2200_70003RH1

    • qla2200_70003RH1

    • lpfc_703

    • megaraid_2106

    • fusion_20511

    • aacraid_10102

    You must remove these drivers from /etc/modules.conf before installing this kernel update.
