Nasty bug manifesting itself again. When trying to boot up a isw (intel raid) that is in mode to be 'verified', i.e. not clean, the kernel 126.96.36.199-5
cannot bring up any volume groups due to the
mirror 253:0: Device lookup failure
Once the RAID has been verified using recovery disk (live CD boots the raid fine), the RAID comes up again. Probably udev timing issues or isw cannot bring up a mirror which is degraded.
Generally, RAID crypted volume groups are unbelievably finicky and come up or not randomly.
And let's not even mention that Fedora 15 boots slower than Windows 7 now (did not think that could ever happen) and I cannot reboot it due to tons systemd issues with shutdown of services. systemd has been definitely rushed out and is not an improvement in any way so far.
Are you still seeing this with 2.6.43/3.3?
188.8.131.52-1.fc15.x86_64 #1 SMP
and will not update. The problem of RAID10 loosing sync all the time persist, no matter how you power down, often the array resyncs. It seems to come up now if it's not clean though but generally Fedora 15 is so unstable, I'll be scrapping it and go probably to Debian. I have endless lockups under load, issues with VMWare on updates and all kind of power down, bring up issues. Nope, it's not me, since about 13 it became simply terrible. Endless updates, no support for anything more than 1/2 year old & endless bugs introduced. Just ranting but that's what it is. I have 13 running on my large server and that seems to be decently stable still.
Good luck with Debian or whichever distro you choose.
