Package: nagios-plugins
Version: 1.4.14-4
Severity: normal

check_linux_raid gives the following error when ran from nagios:
**ePN /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_linux_raid: "Use of
uninitialized value within %status in pattern match (m//) at 
(eval 1) line line 83, <MDSTAT> line 26.".

There's a simple patch suggested on #nagios by RoyK <roy at karlsbakk.net>
and trondham_:
on line 2, insert:
# nagios: -epn
on line 82, insert:
        next unless (defined($status{$k}));

here is the resulting script:
