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!

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make /usr a raid particion with RH 7.1
2.upgrade to RH 7.2
3.just boot...

Comment 1 Donald Maner 2001-10-28 08:11:21 UTC
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. 

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-10-29 00:33:10 UTC
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 /.
