xboxboy Posted October 28, 2012 Report Share Posted October 28, 2012 Hi all, I'm completely baffled here. Before I get flamed for using fake raid, please be aware that it suits my dual boot system. Once mageia 2 is installed, i was able to install mdraid, then # dmraid -r Which accurately found my array drives. # dmraid -ay Activates the array properly, then I simply mount it and everything is perfect. Until the next reboot. I have to run # dmraid -ay to activate the array, then i have to mount it. If I mount it in fstab it hangs, as the array isn't activated. I activated and mounted it, ran mkinitrd, but this didn't work either. I was able to get a partial solution by using rc.local, but this was less than ideal, as I like to use system links to the data array. To many hours on the net show this is possibly a mageia 2 bug. All I need is to be able to activate the array as soon as the dmraid driver mounts, then everything will work. It sounds sooooo simple...........
