Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 196611
Need entry for Oracle RAW disks
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:25 EST
The attached patch has a basic entry for Oracle RAW disks. It would be good if
someone who knows more about Oracle than I do could improve it and make it give
more information. But basically identifying Oracle partitions is still a
significant benefit and I believe that it's worth having in RHEL4U4.

There's already different and more extended patch in file-4.17. Can you please
check if it works for you? I don't have access to Oracle FS.
The rawhide magic code works well in terms of Oracle.
If the Oracle entry in question is copied from rawhide to RHEL4 then it will
Patch is ready, positively tested by reported.
Great! If you would like me to test the new package then I would be more than
happy to do so.
The component this request has been filed against is not planned for inclusion
in the next update. The decision is based on weighting the priority and number
of requests for a component as well as the impact on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux user-base: other components are considered having higher priority and the
number of changes we intend to include in update cycles is limited.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
Please consider this for the update after that one, and the one after that.
I expect that some of the RHEL4 servers I have recently installed will be in
operation for another 4 years without upgrading to RHEL5. So an update at any
time during that interval would be helpful.
Bugzilla won't let me re-open this.
