1.184.1.  RHBA-2009:1319: bug fix update

An updated python-pyblock package that fixes a bug is now available.
The python-pyblock package contains python bindings for device-mapper functionalities; mainly dmraid and multipath.
This update addresses the following bug:
  • pyblock activated and de-activated dmraid sets incorrectly (it did not activate the leaves first and it did not start de-activation with the root). This presented as anaconda being unable to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 onto RAID10 arrays. With this update, pyblock deals with dmraid sets correctly and, consequently, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 installs as expected onto RAID10 arrays. (BZ#475386)
Users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
