Has anyone used the uname26 mentioned as work around for 7.1 client install on Linux using 3.x kernel instead of 2.6.x kernel?


Link discussing use of uname26 is at Symantec:


However, it leaves you hanging on exactly what uname26 is or where you would get it.


I found references to it for RHEL6 in kernel-rt/MRG bugs but didn’t find what package would actually let me install it.   I didn’t find anything other than that on RedHat’s site and nothing regarding RHEL7 in relation to it.

I did finally find a site with the source code and makefile for uname26 and was able to download and make it.   Running “uname –a” without it shows my 3.x kernel for RHEL7.  Running “uname26 uname -2” shows a 2.6.50.x kernel instead.  


We’re about to test the work around using that but I’m wondering if anyone found this somewhere in the RHEL7 repositories?



Please do not tell me to use 7.5 instead of 7.1.   The document mentions that supports the 3.x kernel but then lists the uname26 with 7.1.04 as workaround and it is the workaround I’m investigating.
