Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 716995
Remove Deprecation Statement in /etc/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules
Last modified: 2012-12-19 02:08:00 EST
Description of problem:
as per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=472891#c24
we have re-enabled raw device support.
The the linked comment in the above BZ notes we need to remove the deprecation statement as it is again in mainline.
As of 6.1, it appears to still be there:
[root@civitate ~]# head -4 /etc/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules
# This file and interface are deprecated.
# Applications needing raw device access should open regular
# block devices with O_DIRECT.
[root@civitate ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.1 (Santiago)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Can we remove the first line of /etc/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules to avoid confusion from customers that still need to use raw devices?
$ rpm -qf /etc/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules
