Description Ulrich Drepper 2007-05-07 00:20:38 EDT
Description of problem:
I have two RAID partitions which mdadm is supposed to initialize early on in
rc.sysinit.  This does not succeed and therefore later the fsck calls fail and
throw me in the panic shell.  Booting with enforcing=0 makes things work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot system with RAID partitions
Actual results:
RAID not initialized

Expected results:
RAID initialized, partitions can be mounted

Additional info:
I don't have the audit message since it's not printed on the console.

Can you replace the call to mdadm in /etc/rc.sysinit with:

strace /sbin/mdadm ...

just to get an idea of where it fails?
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-07-16 16:31:55 EDT
There was a bug where mdadm was not allowed to create devices in /dev and then
use them. This should be fixed in the updated selinux policies so I think this
is fixed.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 10:13:58 EDT
Should be fixed in the current release
