Summary: OpenSuse 11.2 suffers from bugs of outdated version of
dmraid (1.0.0-rc15)
Classification: openSUSE

OS/Version: openSUSE 11.2

I installed OpenSuse 11.2/x86-64 on a PC with ASUS P7P55D board. I set up a
fake raid 10 in the boards bios consiting of 4 1TB disks. The raid is correctly
detected and accessible.

When I replaced a disk in the raid by a new one and started a rebuild using
dmraid -R ..., the rebuild correctly started and terminated, but when booting
for the next time, the bios still reported "rebuild" state instead of "normal"

When looking for the reason, I found, that this seems to be a known bug in
dmraid-1.0.0-rc15 that is currently shipped with OpenSuse 11.2. Obviously,
dmraid-1.0.0-rc15 doesn't update the isw metadata appropriately after rebuild
is done.
Meanwhile, dmraid-1.0.0-rc16 is out, that seems to have this bug fixed.

So updating the OpenSuse 11.2 repositories to dmraid-1.0.0-rc16 should solve
this problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up raid 10 in the bios
2. boot OpenSuse 11.2
3. replace one disk of the raid
4. start a rebuild on the raid dmraid -R ...
5. wait until rebuild is finished
6. reboot and watch bios messages
Actual Results:
Bios still shows raid status "rebuild" after rebuild is finished.

Expected Results:
Bios should show raid status "normal" after successful rebuild competion.
