Hello list,

Good lord man fix your MUA's formatting. I've had to pull 3 pairs of scissors out to replay to this...

running 3 SATA-drives in Raid 5 for a couple of years. I used kernel
2.6.23 since,  3 or 4 months ago, CF-Card, mounted as /dev/hda.

Debian is late to the table, as usual, so you're just now seeing it. The answer is using drive UUIDs with mdadm[.conf] instead of the old /dev/YdX device naming convention. See:
