Add multipath-tools to Core
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:51:01 EDT
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.
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'.
multipath-tools indeed depends on a device-mapper module that is not
yet upstream, but it will probably be submitted within the next couple
Deferring because of kernel dependency.
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.
