Fedora 9 Update: mdadm-2.6.7.1-1.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-9325
2008-11-19 13:10:55
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.6.7.1
Release     : 1.fc9
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 update resolves the listed bugs and updates to the latest upstream source.
This updates to the latest upstream mdadm, does some janitorial cleanups, and
attempts to improve the udev rule that invokes mdadm so it properly starts
degraded arrays and also so it reads mdadm.conf to get information about arrays
it is starting in order to enable non-default features that exist on the array
and are listed in the mdadm.conf file.
