mdadm segfaults - failed upgrade to Lenny - drops to busybox/initramfs
Subject should say it all. Updated a box to Lenny from Etch - boot on
one partition, root and everything else on an mdadm managed raid5.
Booting now drops you to initramfs - attempts to use mdadm fail with a
segfault. Have used a Knoppix which establishes that there is still a
boot partition. Now downloading grml to see whether that will help.
HELP HELP HELP required - I've some important emails and some photos on
there I'd like to recover. Relative novice with mdadm - I've just
installed it a few times using the Debian installer and not really
played with it from the command line.
Guide for idiots required, then, all help gratefully received.
Many thanks in advance,
