Fedora Update Notification
2007-07-20 12:34:57.996731

Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.6.2
Release     : 4.fc7
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.

* Mon Jul  2 2007 Doug Ledford <dledford at redhat.com> - 2.6.2-2
- Fix a file leak issue when mdadm is in monitor mode
- Update mdadm init script so that status will always run and so
  return codes are standards compliant
- Fix assembly of version 1 superblock devices
- Make the attempt to create an already running device have a clearer
  error message
- Allow the creation of a degraded raid4 array like we allow for raid5
- Make mdadm actually pay attention to raid4 devices when in monitor mode

* Mon Jul  2 2007 Doug Ledford <dledford at redhat.com> - 2.6.2-1
- Update to latest upstream
- Remove requirement for /usr/sbin/sendmail - it's optional and not on by
  default, and sendmail isn't *required* for mdadm itself to work, and isn't
  even required for the monitoring capability to work, just if you want to
  have the monitoring capability do the automatic email thing instead of
  run your own program (and if you use the program option of the monitor
  capability, your program could email you in a different manner entirely)
