Bug Fix Advisory gfs-kmod bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2007:1106-5
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2007-12-03
Last updated on: 2007-12-03
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)
RHEL Cluster-Storage EUS (v. 5.1.z server)

Details

Updated gfs-kmod packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The gfs-kmod packages contain modules that provide the ability to mount and
use GFS file systems.

It was not possible to install the gfs-kmod packages on the PowerPC
architecture due to the "__clear_user" symbol missing on the PowerPC kernel
whitelist. In these updated packages the "__clear_user" symbol has been
added to the PowerPC kernel whitelist.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated gfs-kmod packages, which are
updated for use with the 2.6.18-8.1.15.el5 kernel.

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