I just filed a bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=845143 relating
to a soft lockup that I am seeing when attempting to run a maven build on an
Ionics Stratus plug computer.
I've only had this machine for a short time, but it has been quite reliable up
to this point. I've been able to do yum updates, etc, without problems.
However, my attempted maven build of Apache ActiveMQ (java app) causes a 100%
reproducible lockup of the machine.
I'd like to ask if other folks have had any stability issues with the Stratus.
I have a TrimSlice on order, and I'll try the same build process once it arrives.
I wrote this article for this week's LWN as a community service. Please
take a look. We won't get there over night, but in time I would hope we
can remove the number of implementations of atomic functions in distro.
To whom it concerns (and the Seneca folks),
Since I know the Seneca Folks are eagerly waiting for theres, I've got
the Via APC here. I just got a working Serial Console that drops
straight to root shell.

Just a quick update on kernel rebases.
Justin rebased Rawhide to the 3.6 merge window git tree last week and
I'm continuing on with that until the merge window closes. Then we'll
pick up the RC kernels throughout, as usual. If there is a feature or
option you have been waiting for in 3.6, now is the time to speak up
and make sure it's set as you want.
F17 was rebased to the 3.5 kernel last week as well. The initial builds
are done and submitted to updates-testing today. F16 will likely follow
suit after 3.5.1 is out.
For both Rawhide and F17, the ARM configs could use some serious looking
at. We continue to have a lot of config options pop up when we do
stable rebases. Getting them set in Rawhide during the merge window
kernels is going to be the best bet to ensure things are working as
If you have questions/comments, feel free to let us know.
Myself Saurabh Shandilya, an undergraduate from Electronics background, I
am highly interested in developing and contributing anything to Fedora-arm.
I am an Embedded Linux developer, ported linux and its few distros on ARM
based single board computers like that of Beaglebone/board and have a
programming experience in blueboard etc..
I am confused how to approach to contribute to the Fedora-arm and what all
to learn for it..
I will be highly thankful to you people for your guidance.
