when a raid device is build from a group of raid partitions the selected
personalities should be loaded on init using an initrd image, otherwise,
when the system boots and the kernel autodetects the raid partitions an
error would show and the autodetected raid device would be aborted.
for sure, it could be started later from the initscripts, but making it
start on kernel load would make it easier to have a RAID root partition and
has no drawback.
all is needed is to set a variable telling which personalities were
selected on install and running $(mkinitrd --with=raid?) as required.
This should happen automatically -- we've tested RAID1 on root recently and had
it work through
exactly the mechansim you describe. What problem are you actually seeing?
works better than i expected, you can get software raid even on scsi
people, you are amazing :)
even on SCSI + RAID + root :)
