Description Abhijith Das 2008-07-21 21:18:40 UTC
Description of problem:

When I tried to install a gfs2-kmod built against the -98 RHEL5 kernel, I got
the following error:

[root@salem ../src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64]# rpm -ivh
error: Failed dependencies:
	ksym(dlm_posix_unlock) = 116f2f13 is needed by kmod-gfs2-1.98-1.1.abhi.2.x86_64
	ksym(dlm_posix_lock) = 9bf133dd is needed by kmod-gfs2-1.98-1.1.abhi.2.x86_64
	ksym(dlm_posix_get) = b75698ce is needed by kmod-gfs2-1.98-1.1.abhi.2.x86_64

Comment 1 Kiersten (Kerri) Anderson 2008-07-22 19:46:33 UTC
Exception marked since this is after the planning phase for this release.  We
need this due to changes that have been made to the dlm in support of gfs2.

Comment 5 Jon Masters 2008-08-21 15:47:18 UTC
I have posted the attached patch internally for consideration in the 5.3 kernel. It is now awaiting internal discussion and signoff. I will update this bug with the results from that process. In the meantime, please let me know if you are planning to ship a module on systems prior to 5.3 and require a temporary workaround for this whitelist omission.
