Unraid OS 6.9.1 Now Available

6 9 1

Notable Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Fixed an issue where code outside of the Unraid OS Management Utility calling smartctl would set up conditions where devices would never spin down. Note: you still need @doron's SAS Spindown plugin to properly support SAS device spindown.
  • For Docker: if an in-tree GPU driver is loaded which results in creating /dev/dri/* device nodes, we set permissions for these nodes to 0777 to ease integration of containers using GPU for transcoding.
  • Typing 'exit' in a Terminal window will now close the window (yay)!
  • We added a 'no-cache' header to NoVNC web access so that future Unraid OS releases will no longer have stale web components.
  • The openssl package was updated to version 1.1.1j which has security updates.
  • Updated the Linux kernel to 5.10.21, a patch release to 5.10 LTS kernel.
  • Included kernel config settings necessary to include certain hardware monitoring devices and added support for new devices.
