Linux programmers make quick fix

Linux founder and head programmer Linus Torvalds has released a quick fix to the new version 2.4.11 of the heart, or kernel, of Linux. The revised kernel fixes a problem related to how Linux handles files that are links to other files--which could cause problems to the installer software from Linux seller SuSE, Torvalds said. He said he had only one report of an actual problem. Usually a month or two goes by before new updates to the kernel are posted, but this time the update lasted only two days. "I made a 2.4.12, and renamed away the sorry excuse for a kernel that 2.4.11 was," Torvalds said in a posting to the kernel programmers' mailing list. The 2.4.11 version was relabeled "don't use."
