22 years give or take, started with SLS, can't remember which version probably older than this one ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/hist... as I can vaguely remember kernel 0.97 but SLS 1.03 has kernel 0.98pl.

FWIW this is the first Linux distro (there are earlier versions but I didn't bother to search) ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/hist...

And the place to get your kernel was ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/linux/

kvm (with a little patch) supports it, running it right now with 5 guests and have 53K pages which are shared. # cat /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_sharing 53714 That's ~200MB for about 1,5GB memory used on the host. Now I can't figured out how many times those pages are shared, so I can't calculated the actual memory saved (it's between 200MB and 4x200MB).

Exceptions prove the rule, and wreck the budget. -- Miller
