Bug Fix Advisory mkinitrd bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1491-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-11-28
Last updated on: 2011-11-28
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated mkinitrd packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The mkinitrd utility creates file system images for use as initial RAM disk
(initrd) images.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Due to an incomplete regular expression in the code, the mkinitrd utility did
not recognize multipath devices located in the /dev/mpath/ directory. As a
consequence, the system could not boot if such a multipath device contained the
root file system. With this update, the regular expression has been corrected,
and mkinitrd now correctly recognizes multipath devices in the /dev/mpath/
directory. (BZ#753693)

All users of mkinitrd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.


Solution

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

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