Ksplice Free for Fedora Users

Sep 01, 2010

Update the Linux kernel without rebooting.

Fedora users can now perform kernel updates without the need to reboot thanks to Ksplice, now free for Fedora users.

Currently, Fedora and Ubuntu Desktop are the only two Linux distros freely supported by Ksplice. Ksplice also supports server editions of Red Hat, CentOS, Debian, CloudLinux, and Ubuntu Server.

“Ksplice was originally developed on Fedora in the first place,” said Jeff Arnold, Ksplice’s founder and chief executive in a press release. “We’re thrilled to contribute our service back to the Fedora community for free,” he added.

The Ksplice code has been contributed to the Fedora Project for future integration into distributions. The enterprise edition, Ksplice Uptrack is available for purchase at a regular subscription fee that starts a US$ 4.95.
