Created attachment 361775 [details]
dmesg file which includes some info about mdadm segfaults

Description of problem:
During the boot process I get segfaults reported during the boot process and in some cases (dracut initramfs/kernel combinations) this results in /dev/md0 from being used which keeps the boot from completing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mdadm-3.0-4.fc12.i686

There is some tie in to dracut with this. I saw the same issue on an x86_64 machine where both the -23 and -33 kernels wouldn't complete booting and I ended up using mkinitrd to make an initrd img to use instead of an initramfs image from dracut.

Seem to be duplicate of bug 523862.

Comment 3 Bruno Wolff III 2009-09-22 19:27:32 UTC
I agree.
What I suspect is that dracut ins't including some needed library in the initramfs. When I use a mkinitrd generated initrd image I don't see any problems.

Marking as duplicate then :)

It crashes for me even on normal system. Mkinitrd generated images have populated mdadm.conf, not sure about dracut ones - may be it tries to scan and fails.
