In my time off this week, I'm upgrading kernels while I have time and access.

The backup box in my mom's basement:

$uname -r
2.6.32-hardened-r22
$ uptime
 10:55:38 up 241 days, 21:36,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.16, 0.51

My public web server:

$ uname -r
2.6.28-hardened-r9
$ uptime
 10:56:17 up 713 days, 11:50,  1 user,  load average: 0.27, 0.21, 0.27

Almost two years uptime!  Ah well.  Thankfully the public server went smoothly.  One quick reboot, and a tweak to a configuration file or two for a daemon that hadn't read it for too long for it to still be valid, and it was back up as expected.  The one here in the basement was a big headache, but I got it sorted.

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.
