*** Announcement: dmraid 1.0.0-rc2 *** Following a good tradition, dmraid 1.0.0-rc2 is available at http://people.redhat.com:/~heinzm/sw/dmraid/ in source and i386 rpm, before I leave for a 2 weeks vacation trip followed by LWE ;) Won't read my email before July, 30th. dmraid (Device-Mapper Raid tool) discovers, [de]activates and displays properties of software RAID sets (ie. ATARAID) and contained DOS partitions using the device-mapper runtime of the 2.6 kernel. The following ATARAID types are supported on Linux 2.6: Highpoint HPT37X Highpoint HPT45X Intel Software RAID Promise FastTrack Silicon Image Medley This ATARAID type can be discovered only in this version: LSI Logic MegaRAID Please provide insight to support those metadata formats completely. Thanks. See files README and CHANGELOG, which come with the source tarball for prerequisites to run this software, further instructions on installing and using dmraid! CHANGELOG is contained below for your convenience as well. Call for testers: ----------------- I need testers with the above ATARAID types, to check that the mapping created by this tool is correct (see options "-t -ay") and access to the ATARAID data is proper. You can activate your ATARAID sets without danger of overwriting your metadata, because dmraid accesses it read-only unless you use option -E with -r in order to erase ATARAID metadata (see 'man dmraid')! This is a release candidate version so you want to have backups of your valuable data *and* you want to test accessing your data read-only first in order to make sure that the mapping is correct before you go for read-write access. The author is reachable at <Mauelshagen@RedHat.com>. Later, I told you ;) For test results, mapping information, discussions, questions, patches, enhancement requests and the like, please subscribe and mail to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. CHANGELOG: --------- Changelog from dmraid 1.0.0-rc1 to 1.0.0-rc2 2004.07.15 o Intel Software RAID discovery and activation support o allow more than one format handler name with --format o display "raid10" sets properly rather than just "mirror" o enhanced activate.c to handle partial activation of sets (eg, degraded RAID0) o enhanced command line option checks o implemented a library context for variables such as debug etc. o fixed memory leak in discover_partitions o fixed recursion in _find_set() o continued writing subsets in case we fail on one because of RAID1 o format handler template update o fixed dietlibc build o fixed shared library configure o use default_list_set() instead of &raid_sets where possible o name change of list_head members to the more commonly used 'list' o renamed msdos partition format handler to dos o lots of inline comments corrected/updated o streamlined tools/*.[ch] o moved get.*level() and get_status to metadata.[ch] and changed level name to type -- Regards, Heinz -- The LVM Guy -- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Heinz Mauelshagen Red Hat GmbH Consulting Development Engineer Am Sonnenhang 11 56242 Marienrachdorf Germany Mauelshagen@RedHat.com +49 2626 141200 FAX 924446 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
