Description Gregory Leblanc 2003-04-14 05:39:08 UTC
Description of problem:  The RAID startup stuff in rc.sysinit doesn't support
mdadm.conf for configuring RAID arrays.  Given how much easier they are to use,
it should do so.  I've created a patch to rc.sysinit that starts RAID arrays
using mdadm.conf.  It's essentially a copy of the existing stuff for the
raidtools tools.  I suspect that they could be condenced into one block of code,
but I'm not sure I'm good enough to hack that.
