LIO -fb in Debian

Compulsory:

Categories: 

LIO -fb is the new SCSI Target for Debian. Previously, we maintained the LIO tools from the pre-fork upstream branch. But, with good reasons, we've now moved to the newer -fb (Free Branch).

  • They were automatically detected
  • Partitions/File Systems understood
  • Desktop systems would prompt for actions

The typical kernel messages I got for these devices were:
