The storage radar in LinuxMCE does not know about /dev/vdX devices, and would need to be amended to use it.
The relevant code is in StorageDevices_Radar.sh and StorageDevices_StatusRadar.sh in /usr/pluto/bin (or in src/PlutoStorageDevices if you've checked out the source tree.), with a little digging you should see what to add.
This worked nicely, thank you.
However, I would strongly ask that you amend the storage radar, so that this benefits not only you, but other users of this type of setup in the long run.
I am happy to commit the changes, I just have no idea how. Is there a wiki entry describing that?
Of course, if this is too much to begin with, you could just..oh..I don't know...USE A STANDARD STORAGE MECHANISM PERHAPS?
(seriously, all you sysadmin types are going to fucking drive me to drinking. We realistically can't support all your zillions of edge cases for system environments that you guys want to willy nilly slap together without first understanding the system! I grow weary from it, and am THIS close to really spewing some nasty words about it.)
As far as I know this is pretty standard, shipping with the standard kernel since 2.6.25.
Of course I know that you cannot support all possible cases, standard or not, but actually I thought that I could use this system without first understanding every detail of it. I also thought that when somebody asked a question you could expect a normal and friendly answer.
With best regards
