We're trying to get Red Hat 7.2 on an Alpha DP264 (dual EV6), with
software RAID-1 set up for all partitions except /boot. After a month
of troubleshooting, there appears to be a problem with the md driver.
We are getting frequent "unable to handle kernel paging request"
errors, other times the system will just completely lock up. I have
found several postings about RAID on the Alphas doing this, but so far
no solutions have been posted.
We have been using the 2.4.9 stock kernel, as well as a custom 2.4.19
kernel from the source at kernel.org.
Has anybody been able to get RAID1 to work on an Alpha, with a 2.4.x
Thanks for all feedback.
