Re: Why no raid modules?

Hi all:

I can now confirm that RAID-1, at least, works just fine on
the ultra platform.

I'm running and booting off RAID-1. Ultra5, potato release,
slightly patched up to support 2.4.9 kernel.  The RAID arrays
are formatted with ext3, so I can confirm that works too :)

The only slight problem is that it seems the kernel doesn't
autodetect the partitions as being RAID, even when I mark
them as 0xFD type.  However, an 'append="md=0,/dev/sda1,/dev/sde2"'
in /etc/silo.conf did the trick, for now.

smooth:/# df
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/md1               3803344    939432   2670708  26% /
/dev/md0                 62653      9856     49562  17% /boot

I'm running bonnie right now, and will post the results later.
