Oracle updates its Linux kernel with new advanced file system

Oracle's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2 supports the cutting-edge Btrfs file system

Due to an error in information from a vendor, the story, "Oracle updates its Linux kernel with new advanced file system," which posted to the wire Tuesday, incorrectly stated the role that the Oracle Ksplice software will take in its role in updating the Linux kernel. Paragraph 14, the last paragraph, has been changed on the wire and now reads:

Once Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2 has been installed on a server, administrators can apply future security updates using the Oracle Ksplice software, eliminating the need to reboot the server.
