Ksplice for Fedora!

In response to many requests, Ksplice is proud to announce we're now providing Uptrack free of charge for Fedora!

Fedora will join Ubuntu Desktop among our free platforms, and will give Fedora users rebootless updates as long as Fedora maintains each major kernel release.

However, of note: Fedora is the only Linux distribution that migrates to a new Linux kernel version family (e.g. 2.6.33 to 2.6.34) during the lifetime of the product. This kernel version family migration is such a major version change that Ksplice recommends a reboot for this version change.  These migrations occur roughly twice per year and only in Fedora; all of the other important Fedora kernel updates can be applied rebootlessly, as can the kernel updates for the rest of our supported Linux distributions.

We've also submitted the Uptrack client for integration into a later version of Fedora and are working with the Fedora folks to help make rebootless updates part of the distribution itself. Thanks for all your feedback about Uptrack and keep it coming! 

Best, 
the Ksplice Team

About

Tired of rebooting to update systems? So are we -- which is why we invented Ksplice, technology that lets you update the Linux kernel without rebooting. It's currently available as part of Oracle Linux Premier Support, Fedora, and Ubuntu desktop. This blog is our place to ramble about technical topics that we (and hopefully you) think are interesting.
