Bug Fix Advisory gnbd-kmod bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2007:0885-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2007-09-18
Last updated on: 2007-09-18
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)


Updated gnbd-kmod packages that fix module loading issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, kernel release 2.6.18-8.1.10.el5.

The gnbd-kmod packages contain modules that allow the GFS Network Block
Device (GNBD) to communicate with the kernel.

These updated gnbd-kmod packages are in sync with the 2.6.18-8.1.10.el5
kernel. The modules in earlier gnbd-kmod packages failed to load because
they did not match the running kernel. It was possible to force load the
modules. With this update, however, users no longer need to.

Users are advised to upgrade to these latest gnbd-kmod packages, which are
updated for use with the 2.6.18-8.1.10.el5 kernel.


Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
