Bug Fix Advisory gnbd-kmod bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2007:0953-3
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2007-10-02
Last updated on: 2007-10-02
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated gnbd-kmod packages that fix module loading issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, kernel release 2.6.18-8.1.14.el5.

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

These updated gnbd-kmod packages are in sync with the 2.6.18-8.1.14.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; however, with this update, users do not need to do so.

Users are advised to upgrade to these latest gnbd-kmod packages, which are
updated for use with the 2.6.18-8.1.14.el5 kernel.
