dmraid discovers, activates, deactivates and displays properties
of software RAID sets (eg, ATARAID) and contained DOS partitions.
dmraid uses the Linux device-mapper to create devices with respective
mappings for the ATARAID sets discovered.
The following formats are supported:
Highpoint HPT37X/HPT45X
Intel Software RAID
LSI Logic MegaRAID
NVidia NForce RAID (nvraid)
Promise FastTrack
Silicon Image(tm) Medley(tm)
VIA Software RAID
Please read the documentation in /usr/share/doc/dmraid BEFORE attempting
any use of this software. Improper use can cause data loss!

dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.2ubuntu3) trusty; urgency=medium
* Correct dmraid fallback imsm assembly logic.
* Correct dmraid fallback ddf assembly warning message.
2014-02-18 - Dimitri John Ledkov <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.2ubuntu2) trusty; urgency=low
[ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
* Do not assemble Intel Rapid (Matrix) Storage, if mdmon (mdadm) is
present and not disabled.
* Add breaks on mdadm, of versions which do not assembly fakeraid arrays
by default using mdmon.
* Drop force loading dm-raid45 module in the initramfs hook.
[ Stefan Bader ]
* Convert library to use the dm-raid upstream module instead of the
out-of-tree dm-raid45 one.
* Hack to ignore devices with less than 8 sectors (which avoids error
messages when probing for meta-data).
* Remove modprobe dm-raid45 from dmraid-activate.
* Setting configure executable in debian/rules to avoid odd FTBS in
some cases.
2013-01-11 - Dmitrijs Ledkovs <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.2ubuntu1) raring; urgency=low
* Merge from debian. To pick up NMU. Everything else is still the same:  
- Depend on kpartx-boot to pull kpartx into the initramfs (LP: #941874)
- Depend on kpart-udeb
- Breaks libparted0debian1 (<< 2.3-5ubuntu4)
- Use kpartx to activate partitions
- Add 25_change-uuid.patch
- Add 23_pdc_dump_extended_metadata.patch
- Add 21_fix_testing.patch
- Add 24_drop_p_for_partition_conditional.patch  
- Fix once again the jmicron naming bug, upstream fix does not work
- debian/dmraid-activate: Remove the special-casing of the root
device which breaks in many situations and leaves the raw devices
- debian/dmraid.postinst: Comment out "udevadm trigger" call in postinst
for now as it has severeconsequences when mountall is installed
(clears /tmp).  
- debian/dmraid.udev: Removed |change udev rule for dmraid-activate
to prevent infinite udev event loop.
2012-09-10 - Ulrich Dangel <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.2) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Call udevadm settle before activating dmraid devices
(Closes: #677450)
2012-10-01 - Colin Watson <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.1ubuntu9) quantal; urgency=low
* Rebuild for new armel compiler default of ARMv5t.
2012-03-20 - Phillip Susi <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.1ubuntu8) precise; urgency=low
* Depend on kpartx-boot to pull kpartx into the initramfs (LP: #941874)
2012-03-13 - Phillip Susi <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.1ubuntu7) precise; urgency=low
* Fix Update initramfs hook to copy correct udev rules file with
new priority of 97 instead of 85 (LP: #941874)
2012-01-28 - Colin Watson <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.1ubuntu6) precise; urgency=low
* Depend on kpartx-udeb rather than multipath-udeb, now that it exists
(LP: #922646).
2012-01-08 - Phillip Susi <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.1ubuntu5) precise; urgency=low
* Switch to using kpartx to activate partitions.  This
allows dmraid to work on gpt formatted disks.  Change
priority of udev rule so it runs after kpartx.
* Add 25_change-uuid.patch: Change the UUID set on partitions
and internal subset devices ( each half of a raid10 ) to
differentiate them from the main disk so that parted will
not show the internal subset devices and kpartx will not
probe them for partitions.
2011-04-28 - Phillip Susi <>
dmraid (1.0.0.rc16-4.1ubuntu4) oneiric; urgency=low
* Drop 22_add_pdc_64bit_addressing.patch: breaks some
pdc raid sets (LP: #770600)
