TuxMachines: Did Red Hat’s CTO Walk – Or Was He Pushed?

Friday 29th of August 2014 07:24:51 PM

He went on to say that some within Red Hat speculate that tensions between Stevens and Paul Cormier, Red Hat’s president of products and technologies, might be responsible, although there doesn’t appear to have been any current argument between the two. Cormier will take over Stevens’ duties until a replacement is found.

Vaughan-Nichols also said that others at Red Hat had opined that Stevens might’ve left because he’d risen as high as he could within the company and with no new advancement opportunities open to him, he’d decided to move on. If this was the case, why did he leave so abruptly?

Stevens had been at Red Hat for nearly ten years. If he was leaving merely because “I’ve done all I can here and it’s time to seek my fortune elsewhere,” we’d expect him to work out some kind of notice and stay on the job long enough for Red Hat to find a suitable replacement. Turning in a resignation that’s effective immediately is not the ideal way to walk out the door for the last time. It smells of burning bridges.

Reddit: process changes ownership to root after I try to kill it by kill command

Friday 29th of August 2014 07:07:21 PM

(xpost from /r/sysadmin as No one was responding)

Hi All,

I am unsure of a better place to ask this. We have a bunch of RHEL machines which all runs an application that has SUID set. Lets say user X starts the process XXX and the process starts with PPID 1 as SUID is set on the binary, issue here is If for some reasons user X decides to terminate the process and issues a kill command, what actually happens is that process ownership gets changed to root (as root was the EUID I am guessing because of the SUID in place) and continues to run. Which makes it hard for me as I will have to go through a series of approvals in order to get the root session and kill the process which again might go to root ownership if the user decides to kill it. RHEL version is 5.4, 5.8 and 6 Anyone faced a situation likes this or have a solution for this ?

Ondemand vs. Performance CPU Governing For AMD FX CPUs On Linux 3.17

In the tests shared yesterday of looking at the AMD FX-9590 CPU on Linux and other CPU benchmarks from this weekend, some Phoronix readers raised concerns about the CPU scaling governor differences between the AMD and Intel hardware. The AMD FX CPUs continue to use the CPUfreq driver by default to handle their scaling while modern Intel CPUs have the new Intel P-State driver. Beyond the Intel-specific P-State vs. CPUfreq, the AMD CPUs generally default to using the "ondemand" governor while with Intel desktop CPUs on P-State it generally ends up with the "performance" mode. Some Phoronix readers found performance vs. ondemand differences to be unfair, but for AMD FX CPUs, there isn't much of a difference in our common CPU torture test benchmarks found in the Phoronix Test Suite.
