Description of problem:
When booting with a raid 5 array the boot fails due to library dependancies.
output of ldd /sbin/mkraid
libpopt.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpopt.so.0 (0x40027000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0x4002e000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
/usr is not mounted when system loads raid.
Correct fix would be to use no dynamic libraries in /sbin or /bin
The redhat fix will probly be move the popt package to /lib
Quick fix copy libpopt to /lib
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a raid 5 array with persistant superblocks
2.reboot the system
3.Watch boot fail when it can't load the raid 5 array
Actual Results: Boots into single user mode
Expected Results: Boot into proper run level
All binaries in /bin and /sbin should be compiled staticly.
At very least all libraries needed by binaries in /bin and /sbin should
be in /lib.
