Description Thomas Dodd 2001-01-25 18:46:12 EST
The 2.4.0-0.43.12 kernel will not boot with / on a RAID volume.
2.4.0-0.99.5 looks to have the same problems.

The kernel config options were moved so CONFIG_MD_BOOT
is not selectable when RAID is a module (raid0.o, raid1.o).

RAID autodetect doesn't work when IDE is modular, since th
md driver runs autodetect prior to the IDE modules loading
and detecting the devices.

I changed linux/drivers/md/Config.in to move the autodetect
option to no require built-in raid, but the IDE issue hits.

Building IDE, MD, and RAIDx into rthe kernel works.

I'm testing 2.4.0-0.99.5 now, but the configfile still has
the autodetect option depending on builtin RAID drivers.

going through old unclosed bugs..
Did this ever get resolved? Does this problem still exist
in our current Fedora/RHEL products ?

Please reopen if this is still a problem.

I'd forgotten this. It was working throughmost of the 2.4 based
releases. RHL9 worked fine. I nolonger have SW RAID so I cannot say more.
