I am using Linux in my laptop. I have Linux Kernel 188.8.131.52 in my laptop. As Linux Kernel 3.3.5 – rc2 is released yesterday, I am excited to get it! Can anybody please let me know,
1.What are new features in latest release?
2. Is it possible to use IPV 6 in Kernel 3.3.5 – rc2?
3. Can I install it on 64 bit architecture?
Thanks in advance!!
What are new features in Linux Kernel 3.3.5-rc2?
Please find below the answers of your questions:
The new updated Linux kernel 3.3.5 includes some ARM, X86 and also PowerPC fixes, lots of drivers (USB, wireless, etc), as well as NFS file system improvements have been done. Moreover many other small fixes are also included in this update.
The latest update includes all the features which you would expect in a modern and new update. It includes true multitasking, shared libraries, shared copy on write executables, virtual memory, multi stack networking including IPV4 and also IPV6.
New and updated Linux is easily portable to most general-purpose 32- or 64-bit architectures as long as they have a paged memory management unit (PMMU) and a port of the GNU C compiler (gcc) (part of The GNU Compiler Collection, GCC). Moreover Linux has also been ported to a number of architectures without a PMMU, although functionality is then definitely somewhat limited.
Hope the answers will help you.
