Slackware build for dmraid?


I was looking for an already-built dmraid package for Slackware. Is there one out there somewhere? I've been googling and I see that some Slackers actually have dmraid running.

I admit that I'm pretty bad at compiling programs, but I thought I'd just download the dmraid-1.0.0.rc10 source and run it thru the ./configure -> make route. It errored profusely on make.

Note: I tried raidtools. Their performance was less than desired and I was hoping that maybe dmraid would give me better success.

What is the error that make gives you?

Well, like I said, there were a lot of errors. Pages of them. The standouts were "undeclared variable" errors. There were lots of warnings about "implicit declarations of functions".

I guess the first error that it gave was a squirrelly notice that it couldn't find "libdevmapper.h" while making in the activate/devmapper.c program...

Maybe I'm missing some other set of tools that are included standard in RedHat?

PS: It occurred to me that I thought the build would work because ./configure checked everything out and was happy as spit!

Looks like you need to install device mapper first for that to work.

Geesh, the things you learn on this site. I didn't think device mapper was a prereq for dmraid. I thought it was another module or a related program or something. Well, I downloaded it from linuxpackages.com and installpackaged it. Indeed, it had libdevmapper.h. I downloaded LVM2 as well, but I don't know anything about it. I'll do some research. Maybe these two packages were useful with raidtools in solving my "invalid superblock" on my raid partitions errors I get from md at boot.

NB: dmraid compiled just fine.

Thanks!

It's amazing what you can discover with a text editor and a README file.
Or with your favorite browser and, no not google -clusty.com.
