Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-24 15:41:43 UTC
Are you saying you had a md0 on your system, and you are now creating a new md0
and formatting it?

Comment 3 Glenn R. Penecios 2002-05-27 02:00:14 UTC
nope! i dont create another software raid, im just using the previous raid0 (not
formatted) i still need the data stored into it.

Comment 4 Glenn R. Penecios 2002-05-27 02:59:58 UTC
i think the problem is in the software raid... i reinstall everything without
mounting the software raid and it works fine. my problem is howto get the data
(howto mount the software raid) from the software raid? any suggestions? thanx

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-29 16:48:54 UTC
Jeremy is there a workaround for this?

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2002-05-29 16:51:37 UTC
Related to the fact that we don't recognize preexisting software RAID sets... 
not sure about what's causing the traceback, though.  We should see that there's
already an md0 even if we're not using it and try a higher one.  I'll try to
reproduce here

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-12 19:55:58 UTC
We handle this correctly now with the current development trees

Comment 8 Michael Fulbright 2002-12-20 17:38:25 UTC
Time tracking values updated

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
