    Solved My post just vanished from #storage

    Subj just happened to a post I made about an hour ago. Subject line was something like "hot swap drive behind RAID 0 (JBOD)". Is this ... normal occurrence? There's nothing anywhere that would indicate that content ever existed even. Thanks

So, since Open vSwitch was broken for me anyway I decided to do a little "hacking" of the files in the ports tree for OVS. I noticed that the Makefile configures OVS to be built with shared...
