RAID Support *Almost* Working
I gave your modified kernel a shot with the RAID support added to it and Ive got good news and bad news. The good news is that it *does* autodetect and set up the raid. 'cat /proc/mdstat' now shows the following:
Personalities : [linear] [raid0] [raid1] [raid5] [multipath]
md2 : active raid5 sdc6 sdb6 sda6
17233664 blocks level 5, 64k chunk, algorithm 2 [3/3] [UUU]
md0 : active raid1 sdc1 sdb1 sda1
97152 blocks [3/3] [UUU]
unused devices: <none>
When I then go into the g4l app to pick a partition I now see the option 'md2' (which holds everything but /boot and swap). When I choose it however I get an error saying "Device doesn't exist" At this point im fairly sure its trying to mount it to /mnt/local, and sure enough if you look in /dev there is no device named md*. I tried running 'mknod /dev/md2 b 9 2' (which I got from google) and it made the device just fine, but still it will not mount it. Im not sure if the problem is now that I use reiserfs as im fairly certain g4l supports that. Anyway, we are so close yet so far.
