Announcement: Patch for RapidDisk (rxdsk) 1.2 to build for 2.6.18 and more

November 18th, 2011

Unrelated to the upcoming 1.3 release, I just uploaded a patch for RapidDisk 1.2 to be able to build and install the module on the older 2.6.18 Linux kernel. That is, if you are still using Red Hat or CentOS 5.x. To apply the patch, just navigate to the module/drivers/block path from the root of the project package, make sure the patch is copied in there, and type:

$ patch -p0< rxdsk1.2_linux2.6.18.patch

Also, I wanted to post that I created a Google+ page for the project, for those who are interesting in staying posted about the latest news on the open source project.
