Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-03-19 20:37:23 EST
Description of Problem:

Summary pretty well describes what is going on.  I do not know about
earlier kernels from Red Hat distributions but 2.4.18 at least does not
suffer from that affliction and it boots from things like /dev/md4 without
batting an eye.

Combine that with 'mkinitrd' which has /dev/md0 hardwired in its text
plus totally unpredictable and uncotrollable behaviour of a Disk Druid
which loves to rearrange things just for the heck of it and one gets
into troubles on a system with multiple RAID devices (yes, such things
do exist and for a reason).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.9-31

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
