Description Doug Ledford 2005-05-13 17:58:28 UTC
Description of problem: Raidautorun is deprecated and doesn't start all possible md array configurations properly. Also, the detection of valid md devices is broken for partitionable md devices. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a partionable md device using a raid level not used in any regular md devices 2. Run mkinitrd 3. Actual results: mkinitrd will fail to load the raid level module for the partitionable device and will fail to start the device Expected results: Should work Additional info: Patch to fix problem attached. Patch does two things. 1) it corrects the detection of partitionable md device in the /proc/mdstat file so that they get processed properly. 2) it replaces raidautorun with mdadm -A --scan which will read the various arrays from the newly installed mdadm.conf file and attempt to start all arrays that it can find by scanning the available devices.
Comment 2 Peter Jones 2005-05-17 15:53:23 UTC
This patch needs to conditionalize use of raidautorun vs mdadm.static based on mdadm.conf.

Comment 4 John Thacker 2007-01-13 20:17:26 UTC
(This is a mass update of bugs which have been in the NEEDINFO state unmodified for over a year and have not been confirmed for a still supported version of Fedora Core.) Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed. Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not get to this bug earlier.
