Subhendu,

Can you please track this bz as part of your work for GFS activities?
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-04-16 16:03:33 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release.  Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.
Comment 6 Jeffrey Needham 2009-04-17 13:25:37 EDT
If there is no rawdevice support, then it will not be possible to certify any of 10gR2 on RHEL6 (and definitely no RAC/GFS either).
Comment 9 Ric Wheeler 2010-03-16 13:17:00 EDT
This has not been deprecated - should be "QA_ONLY".
Comment 10 Jeffrey Moyer 2010-03-16 13:28:52 EDT
Right, upstream undeprecated it.  Our config file has

CONFIG_RAW_DRIVER=y
CONFIG_MAX_RAW_DEVS=8192

So, this should just work.
Comment 11 Joshua Giles 2010-03-17 17:07:46 EDT
Confirmed.
Comment 12 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-07-02 15:15:36 EDT
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta 2 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
