Fedora Update Notification
2012-07-26 21:45:37

Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 3.2.5
Release     : 4.fc16
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:

This is an update to the mdadm package.

It moves /etc/tmpfiles.d/mdadm.conf to /lib/tmpfiles.d/ to comply with Fedora tmpfile rules.

All users of mdadm are advised to update.
