SLES11 SP2 shipped with kernel 3.0.13.
Since you’re listing SLES11 you missed SLES11 SP4 which is the latest
(and last) release of SLES11 - SLES11 SP4 shipped with kernel 3.0.101.
c. SLES12 SP1- kernel version, 3.1.x[/color]
SLES12 SP1 shipped with kernel 3.12.49.
d. SLES12 SP2- kernel version, 3.1.x[/color]
SLES12 SP2 shipped with kernel 4.4.21.
e. SLES12 SP3- kernel version, 3.1.x[/color]
SLES12 SP3 shipped with kernel 4.4.73.
Note all have received later minor versions of the kernel through
patches. Note also that for stability reasons SUSE backport security
fixes from a later version to the current.
The /proc/pid/cmdline file length limit for the ps command was
previously hard-coded in the kernel to 4096 characters. This update
makes sure the length of /proc/pid/cmdline is unlimited, which is
especially useful for listing processes with long command line
The above wording exactly matches that in the Release Notes for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.8 though that also includes a Red Hat
Bugzilla ID which I am not able to access (Red Hat are less open than SUSE).
My customer needs to understand what os version to upgrade to for this
fix to be available. Thanks![/color]
RHEL 6.8 shipped with Linux kernel 2.6.32 and as you noted above all of
those releases of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server shipped with a later
kernel. Of course that doesn’t mean this wasn’t an issue with earlier
versions of Linux kernel 3.x but SUSE should be able to confirm as per
jmozden’s earlier reply.
