New web100 kernel packages are now available for netinstall users of the perfSONAR-PS toolkit. 

If you have enabled auto-updates, the kernel will be updated automatically in the next 24 hours. Else, you may run 'yum update' to grab the new kernel. 

You *should* restart your host after the upgrade completes. 

Full details on this particular patch can be found in the previous email.

Note this is just a kernel upgrade and the other perfSONAR-PS packages have *NOT* been updated.  As we often do with incremental kernel updates, we will not be providing a new LiveCD for this particular update. 

Please let us know if you have any questions or issues.

Thank you,
The perfSONAR Team

If you are a NetInstall user, a 'yum update' may give you a new non-web100 kernel and therefore break access to NDT/NPAD. Consult our FAQ for more info:

If you are in doubt about your kernel, feel free to review the CVE,  upgrade to the latest version, and forgo NDT/NPAD support for the time being.  

We are in the process of building and testing a new kernel, and will alert you when we have our web100 patched version available. We'll try to have it ready as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience,
The perfSONAR Team
