Description of problem:
raidstart is linked against libpopt, libpopt.so is located in /usr/lib, but
my /usr partition is a raid level 0... so RH linux dies booting!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make /usr a raid particion with RH 7.1
2.upgrade to RH 7.2
I also have this problem with a /data raid... The boot process tries to mount
my raid0 parition (/data) BEFORE it mounts /usr, so it drops me to a maint.
Confirmed, but it's actually worse than that. raidstart tries to run after
having mounted only /, which means it will fail if /usr is on a separate
partition, regardless of whether it is itself a raid partition. The only
solution I found was to repartition so that /usr was on /.
