Adaptive Server 12.5 is certified and released on kernel 2.2.14. If you choose to configure your system to use raw partitions on a multi-CPU system, you may get better results with Linux kernel release level 2.2.18, since that is the kernel release that is most stable with raw disk partitions.
Adaptive Server version 22.214.171.124 has been released on kernel 2.4.7-10 in addition to kernel 2.2.14. Sybase recommends that you upgrade to this new release since 2.4.7-10 provides:
More stable support for raw devices.
Support for large file systems.
Support for asynchronous I/O.
Support for LDAP.
Backup directly to tape devices.
