serial console log from failed boot with initramfs
Description of problem:
Booting with ext2 /boot on raid1 md0 and ext3 / on LVM on raid 1 md1 fails and drops to maintenance prompt. The problem appears to be md0 (/boot) is stopped soon after it is started. Additionally rc.sysinit appears to be run twice. (Console log attached.) The same problems do not occur using initrd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Given /boot on raid1 md0 and / on lvm on raid1 md1, boot
Boot fails and drops to maintenance prompt.
Some boot messages are repeated. (see attached serial console log)
I tried using device UUID vs super-minor in /etc/mdadm.conf.
I tried using fs UUID vs /dev/md0 in /etc/fstab.
All combinations result the same way.
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 343: 631 Segmentation fault /sbin/mdadm -As --auto=yes --run
I blame it on mdadm :)
What version of mdadm was on the system, and are you still seeing this or has it been resolved since this report was filed?
The current version on the system is mdadm-3.0.2-1.fc12.
The problem appears to be resolved.
