Comment 2 Lukasz Dorau 2012-12-06 15:26:47 UTC
There is a typo done while porting this patch to mdadm-3.2.6-3.fc18:

There is a line in the original patch (http://git.neil.brown.name/git?p=mdadm.git;a=commitdiff;h=066e92f017df22c879c455494d2c1743ef7f3aca):

+ pr_err("no free space left on %s\n", dname); 

It was ported to mdadm-3.2.6-3.fc18 as (in Create.c:411):
+ fprintf(stderr, Name "no free space left on %s\n", dname);

It is wrong. 

The correct one should be (in Create.c:411):
+ fprintf(stderr, Name ": no free space left on %s\n", dname);

Because now the message is following:
mdadmno free space left on /dev/sda

and the correct one should be:
mdadm: no free space left on /dev/sda

Could you correct that?
