Thread: 118855-02 no longer shows patch version in uname output?

  1. 118855-02 no longer shows patch version in uname output?

    I wrangled 118844-30 onto my x2100, then did 'smpatch update -L'.
    After 118844-30:

    foo# uname -a
    SunOS foo 5.10 Generic_Patch_118844-30 i86pc i386 i86pc

    After 'smpatch update -L':

    foo# uname -a
    SunOS foo 5.10 Generic_Patch i86pc i386 i86pc

    I believe this is a result of 118855-02, since that is a kernel patch
    (like 118844-30 was).

    It's a little disturbing that the patch revision is removed from uname
    output. (It's also missing from uname -X.) Is this correct, or did I
    somehow mess up my system by tricking 118844-30 to install. (It didn't
    want to install because my bootdevice != rootdevice -- because I am
    doing root raid mirror.)

    /bin/uname -a
    SunOS antec 5.10 Generic_118855-02 i86pc i386 i86pc

    > uname -X

    System = SunOS
    Node = antec
    Release = 5.10
    KernelID = Generic_118855-02
    Machine = i86pc
    BusType =
    Serial =
    Users =
    OEM# = 0
    Origin# = 1

    Not here:

    % uname -v
    Generic_Patch
    % mcs -p /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix
    /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix:

    @(#)SunOS 5.10 Generic 118855-02 Feb 2006


    I ran strings on /platform/i86pc/kernel/unix and
    /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix.

    It looks like the patch-ID is compiled into the 32bit kernel, but not the
    64bit one.

    Same issue here ... used updatemenager ( oh how I long for patch
    clusters )

    snake% uname -X
    System = SunOS
    Node = snake
    Release = 5.10
    KernelID = Generic_Patch
    Machine = i86pc
    BusType =
    Serial =
    Users =
    OEM# = 0
    Origin# = 1
    NumCPU = 1
