Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 3.2.6
Release     : 19.fc19
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 fixes a couple of bugs and finalizes the /usr move:

- Fix problem with IMSM metadata where resync progress would be lost if an array was stopped during ongoing expansion of a RAID1/5 volume.
- Rely on rpm macros to place files in correct directories, and match /usr move
- Cleanup .spec file handling of different Fedora versions
- Fix problem where  rebuild of IMSM RAID5 volume started in OROM, does not proceed in OS

All users of mdadm are advised to upgrade.


  [ 1 ] Bug #956031 - If rebuild of IMSM RAID5 volume is started in OROM, it does not proceed in OS.
  [ 2 ] Bug #914629 - Fix .spec file to avoid problems when building on non-Fedora
  [ 3 ] Bug #955248 - Update mdadm to match the /usr move
  [ 4 ] Bug #948745 - [Intel F18 BUG] IMSM metadata contains no information about the resync process ongoing during expanding the size of RAID1 or RAID5 volume

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mdadm' at the command line.
