1.3 New and Updated Packages

To support the newly added functionality that the UEK R5 provides, several kernel and user space binary packages have been added or updated from the ones included in the base distribution. For more information about the ULN channels and Oracle Linux yum server repositories in which these packages are available, see Chapter 4, Installation and Availability.

Kernel space packages that are adde and updated for UEK R5 are labeled with the prefix kernel-uek. The linux-firmware package is also updated with the latest available firmwares.

The packages listed here are specific to user space functionality and are updated to take advantage of features available in UEK R5. There is no dependency on these packages to use UEK R5. If you use any of these packages and also use UEK R5 you should update the package to the latest version for full compatibility with all of the features available in UEK R5.
