RHEL5 delay - alternatives

First page Back Continue Last page Overview Graphics

Alternative: stick to SLC5 plan?

  • Stick to original plan, or certify a beta?

    • Would have a few online farms on SLC4, rest on SLC5
    • Unrealistic! SLC5 too close to LHC startup
    • Little to be gained If SLC4 is around as well (have 2.6 kernel, don't foresee immediate requests for Xen)
  • But: SLC5 will come anyway (newer hardware support etc)

    • May get used behind the scenes on hidden services
    • May get used on individual laptops/desktops
    • Some services will/may try to skip SLC4
    • But can discuss release/certification schedules later..
