Fedora Update Notification
2009-12-03 04:34:26

Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 3.0.3
Release     : 2.fc12
URL         : http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/raid/mdadm/
Summary     : The mdadm program controls Linux md devices (software RAID arrays)
Description :
The mdadm program is used to create, manage, and monitor Linux MD (software
RAID) devices.  As such, it provides similar functionality to the raidtools
package.  However, mdadm is a single program, and it can perform
almost all functions without a configuration file, though a configuration
file can be used to help with some common tasks.

Update Information:

Minor update to correct an LSB compliance issue in the mdmonitor init script

* Tue Dec  1 2009 Doug Ledford <dledford at redhat.com> - 3.0.3-2
- Minor tweak to init script for LSB compliance (bz527957)
* Wed Nov  4 2009 Doug Ledford <dledford at redhat.com> - 3.0.3-1
- New upstream release 3.0.3 (bz523320, bz527281)
- Update a couple internal patches
- Drop a patch in that was in Neil's tree for 3.0.3 that we had pulled for
  immediate use to resolve a bug
- Drop the endian patch because it no longer applied cleanly and all attempts
  to reproduce the original problem as reported in bz510605 failed, even up
  to and including downloading the specific package that was reported as
  failing in that bug and trying to reproduce with it on both ppc and ppc64
  hardware and with both ppc and ppc64 versions on the 64bit hardware.
  Without a reproducer, it is impossible to determine if a rehashed patch
  to apply to this code would actually solve the problem, so remove the patch
  entirely since the original problem, as reported, was an easy to detect DOA
  issue where installing to a raid array was bound to fail on reboot and so
  we should be able to quickly and definitively tell if the problem resurfaces.
- Update the mdmonitor init script for LSB compliance (bz527957)
- Link from mdadm.static man page to mdadm man page (bz529314)
- Fix a problem in the raid-check script (bz523000)
- Fix the intel superblock handler so we can test on non-scsi block devices
