Re: [dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.2.9



Im having some problems compiling multipathd from your latest
releases, concretely when call "__clone(child, child_stack,
CLONE_NEWNS, NULL)" is used, wich doesnt come with libc includes:

make[1]: Leaving directory
`/root/soft/multipath-tools-0.2.9/multipathd/libsysfs'
gcc-3.3 -pipe -g -Wall -Wunused -Wstrict-prototypes -DDEBUG=1
-DFLOATING_STACKS -Di386   -c -o main.o main.c
main.c: In function `get_devmaps':
main.c:237: warning: long unsigned int format, different type arg (arg 4)
main.c:237: warning: long unsigned int format, different type arg (arg 5)
main.c: In function `main':
main.c:927: warning: implicit declaration of function `__clone'
main.c:927: error: `CLONE_NEWNS' undeclared (first use in this function)
main.c:927: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
main.c:927: error: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [main.o] Error 1

So im using 0.2.5 version. There is any fix for this? im not very well
c coder, so i tryed to change the pid varible assignament on 0.2.8
version from "pid =  sys_clone(CLONE_NEWNS, 0);" to "pid = fork();"
that compiled for me on 0.2.5 but when i started modified multipathd
0.2.8 daemon it removed mysteriously my /bin and /usr/bin, so i came
back to 0.2.5. There is any workarround about this? im interested on
new releases...

Also i would like to know how i can change the spread policy by
default, im using HP HSV100 arrays, wich must use "group_by_tur"
defined on multipathd.conf and seems to be using "multibus"

apache1:~/gfs/tmp/multipath-tools-0.2.5/multipathd# multipath -v
# all paths :
600508b4000116370000a00000c00000 (0 0 1 1) /dev/sdb [HSV100          ]
600508b4000116370000a00000c00000 (1 0 1 1) /dev/sdd [HSV100          ]
# all multipaths :
600508b4000116370000a00000c00000
 \_(0 0 1 1) /dev/sdb [HSV100          ]
 \_(1 0 1 1) /dev/sdd [HSV100          ]
# device maps :
U:600508b4000116370000a00000c00000:0 209715200 multipath 1 round-robin
2 0 /dev/sdb /dev/sdd

Please excuse me any mistakes, i dont use to work with SANs

Thanks,
Jaime.
