I have a system which has been running RedHat 5.1 quite happily since
the day it was released. At some point since then it received some
new hard drives which were set up using "md" to be used in a striped
RAID configuration. All files on the system were simply copied to the
Now, RedHat 5.2 has been released and I would like to upgrade. My
problem is that I can't seem to get it to do software RAID. I don't
have the HD space to place my entire system on a single drive,
upgrade, and then copy it back.
Anyone tried this? Any suggestions?
FWIW, my loadlin startup line looks like:
c:\loadlin\loadlin.exe c:\loadlin\zimage root=/dev/md0 \
md=0,0,4096,0,/dev/sdb1,/dev/sdc1 mem=128M ro vga=785 \
I have tried using the "md=" option above on the kernel boot line when
starting the RedHat installation but it doesn't seem to work.
Thanks for any help!
BTW, I would prefer if you could respond via email
