In order to update kernel patch, we download two .SAR files. One's DB dependent & another is DB independent. What is the fundamental difference between them ?

    Hi,

    kernel consists of 2 parts.

    1. Database Dependent

    2. Database Independent

    tp & R3trans are part of the Database Independent.

    DB-dependent vs. DB-independent: While all native binaries are OS-specific, they can be grouped in either database-dependent or independent manner. Mostly there are numerous database management systems available for a particular Operating System. The DB-dependent part -- which is small in size -- presents the abstraction layer to the particular database system and the DB-independent part -- which makes up the vast majority of all native codes -- presents the abstraction layer to the rest of the outside world

    Thanks
