Summary0013526: Please in future kernel release on CentosPlus provide one with kernel compile option CONFIG_LDM_PARTITION enabled
DescriptionCurrent kernels do not have CONFIG_LDM_PARTITION kernel option enabled. The usfull tool ldmtool from libldm provides a usefull function to access windows partitions including raid.

Given todays common use of dual system on servers it is surprising that this feature is not enabled for a product such as Centos aimed at such a market.

Consequently I would like to request that the necessary kernel options are enabled in future base kernel or CentOS plus kernel are enabled and libldm package made available in repos.

Would be best if upstream undertook this.
Steps To ReproduceRefer release kernel options. Option not enabled.

As noted in the forum post, any change for the regular kernel must come from upstream (Red Hat). Please file a request at http://bugzilla.redhat.com .

The plus kernel (as of 3.10.0-693.el7) has LDM_PARTITION enabled. I'll mark this report 'resolved'.

Any news in the buzgilla you opened?

Closing due to inactivity. The original request fulfilled. Will reopen if there is any new development upstream.
