Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 released

Red Hat has announced the release of Enterprise Linux 6.5 (RHEL 6.5). The release has new features in multiple areas, including security, networking, virtualization, and more. "As application deployment options grow, portability becomes increasingly important. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 enables customers to deploy application images in containers created using Docker in their environment of choice: physical, virtual, or cloud. Docker is an open source project to package and run lightweight, self-sufficient containers; containers save developers time by eliminating integration and infrastructure design tasks."

For those keeping track, it seems this is the RHEL release where ECC is finally enabled. At least the release notes say so: https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Ha...

"ECC"? That's a pretty significant TLA collision we have here.

My first thought on reading this was "WTF? RHEL disables ECC? That has to be a mistake."

I was pretty disappointed when the Linux kernel started enabling DRM on my graphics card! Then I realized what was going on.

What did you realize ?

You realized DRM stood for Direct Rendering Manager, and not Digital Rights Management ?

Yes, exactly. In my defense,

[ 9.025220] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[ 9.732786] [drm] Memory usable by graphics device = 2048M
[ 9.755063] [drm] Supports vblank timestamp caching Rev 1 (10.10.2010).
[ 9.755065] [drm] Driver supports precise vblank timestamp query.
[ 9.788605] fbcon: inteldrmfb (fb0) is primary device

is not implausible for a digital rights management driver's dmesg output, too.

Heh.

Implement drm at drm, revise the acronymn(s), roll out a marketing
campaign centered around an arbitrary recursive acronym for "drm"..

Reduce our log output by half to boot!
