From the ‘Live Release’ files:
VANCOUVER. Have you ever wanted to see how a new stable kernel release is made?
Speaking at the LinuxCon conference, Greg Kroah-Hartman did what few people have seen before – a live demonstration of how a stable kernel is pushed out.
Kroah-Hartman released Linux 3.0.3 in front of the audience putting his scripts up on the screen for all to see. I managed to capture the whole process in a video, so now you too can ‘witness’ a kernel release.
Now to be fair, the patch work and testing was done before on the on-stage theatrics but still – it’s cool to see.
