Description Ben Levenson 2007-04-04 00:14:36 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL-4.5 has version 1.22. RHEL-5-GA has version 1.20.  We should consider
bumping the version in RHEL-5.
Comment 1 Rob Kenna 2007-06-05 10:52:10 EDT
Unlikely to get updated since it's not in the package budget already.  Is there
anything key that's needed here?
Comment 2 Ben Levenson 2007-08-14 00:06:18 EDT
I filed this bug to catch upgrade issues. As long as version 1.22 (RHEL-4.5) works
after an RHEL-4.5 -> RHEL-5.1 upgrade, then we should be fine.  I'll try to
verify this sometime this week.
Comment 3 James Laska 2007-08-14 10:42:26 EDT
Tested on a ppc installation after a RHEL-4.5 -> RHEL-5.1 upgrade

# grep sg3_utils install.log
Installing sg3_utils-libs-1.22-3.1.ppc.
Installing sg3_utils-1.22-3.1.ppc.
Installing sg3_utils-devel-1.22-3.1.ppc.
# grep sg3_utils upgrade.log

All of the sg3_util binaries appear to run without any obvious segfaults.  For

# sg_scan 
/dev/sg0: scsi0 channel=1 id=5 lun=0
/dev/sg1: scsi0 channel=1 id=8 lun=0
/dev/sg2: scsi0 channel=1 id=15 lun=0
/dev/sg3: scsi0 channel=255 id=255 lun=255
/dev/sg4: scsi2 channel=0 id=0 lun=0 [em]

Is there a more accurate test that could be performed to gauge the health of the
sg3_utils binaries?
Comment 4 Phil Knirsch 2007-08-15 09:06:08 EDT
IIRC sg3_utils isn't an approved component for RHEL-5.1, mind if we move that to

Read ya, Phil
Comment 5 Pete Graner 2007-08-23 15:47:44 EDT
Not an approved component per:


Moving to 5.2 proposed.

Looks like pgraner answered this question in comment #5. :)  (This comment
should cause the bugzilla to move out of NEEDINFO)
