Description David Thompson 2000-09-05 14:20:24 EDT
The raidtools-0.90-6 rpm (and previous) installs its devices with different
permissions than the scsi and ide devices.  I.e.

brw-rw----    1 root     disk       3,   0 May  5  1998 /dev/hda
brw-rw----    1 root     disk       3,   1 May  5  1998 /dev/hda1


brw-------    1 root     root       9,   0 Feb  7  2000 /dev/md0
brw-------    1 root     root       9,   1 Feb  7  2000 /dev/md1

So, whenever we want to back up an md device we have to go in and chown the
devices to be the same as the hd/sd disks (we do backups as a group disk

Please update the RPM to install the md devices with the same permissions
as the other devices on which one puts file systems.  In a large
installation like ours, the current scheme is a hassle.

The md devices are being moved into the dev package.  The permissions in the dev
package in Raw Hide (ftp://ftp.redhat.com//pub/rawhide/) are consistent.
