Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0431-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-05-21
Last updated on: 2010-05-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated device-mapper packages that fix various bugs are now available.

The device-mapper packages provide a library required by logical volume
management utilities such as LVM2 and dmraid.

This update applies the following bug fixes:

* fixes the device deactivation function so that the function fails if the
device is open. This fixes a problem that occurred when a device remained active
but the symbolic link was unexpectedly removed. (BZ#583900)

* optimizes regular expression parsing for shared character prefixes. This
shortens processing of lvm2 filters with many devices with a shared prefix.
(BZ#584345)

All users of device-mapper should upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues and include these enhancements.

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
