Mandrake Linux Advisories: devfsd, arts

Dec 06, 2002, 14:28 (1 Talkback[s])

______________________________________________________________________

                     Mandrake Linux Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           devfsd
Advisory ID:            MDKA-2002:013-1
Date:                   December 5th, 2002
Original Advisory Date: October 21st, 2002
Affected versions:      9.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A problem exists with devfsd handling of ida devices (aka compaq
 smart array).  The system will not boot if "devfs=mount" is passed to
 the kernel on the boot loaded command line.  The system will boot,
 however, if "devfs=nomount" is passed to the kernel.  Devfsd would
 incorrectly set the old ida compatibility links to device entries in
 /dev.  This new package corrects this problem.
  
Update:

 These new packages provide a fix for mylex devices.
