I have a Docker container built from Ubuntu 14.10. When I log in to the container to check the Ubuntu version and kernel version I see the following:
root@~$>> lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 14.10 Release: 14.10 Codename: utopic root@~$>> uname -a Linux ambiata-aws 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I thought that Ubuntu 14.10 was supposed to be kernel version 3.16 (as stated here), so why do I have kernel version 3.13.0-24-generic ?
The reason I am asking is because there is a patch in 3.13.0-29-generic that I would like to have (that is, having fallocate working on AUFS in my docker container) which is discussed here.
