Description Rudi Chiarito 2004-12-02 15:18:56 UTC
Description of problem:

Multipath-tools should probably be part of Core. It is more advanced
than the simple-minded mdmpd:

It's not a final release yet, but IMHO it's already worth of getting
some attention by at least Rawhide users.

Additional info:


Comment 1 Rudi Chiarito 2004-12-02 17:46:02 UTC
Am I right in assuming that mp-tools depends on a kernel module (and
thus patches) not in Rawhide/upstream yet?

And mdmpd relies on md while multipathd on dm, right? I guess that
would be another justification for multipath-tools' inclusion.

Those pesky two-letter acronyms... thankfully we have run out of
possible permutations of 'm' and 'd'.

Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2004-12-02 17:52:56 UTC
multipath-tools indeed depends on a device-mapper module that is not
yet upstream, but it will probably be submitted within the next couple
of months.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-02 22:15:41 UTC
Deferring because of kernel dependency.

Comment 4 Alasdair Kergon 2005-03-02 23:17:38 UTC
I have started work on this - I named the package device-mapper-multipath to
avoid confusion with alternative multipath implementations.

I anticipate the kernel patches will be included as of 2.6.12.
