Description Take Vos 2002-09-03 03:07:31 UTC
On my server /etc/init.d/checkfs gives 'Failed to start software RAID'. 
While I run RAID in the kernel and on my boot device, all raid devices are 
already started. 
[root@cordelia]init.d> /sbin/raidstart --all >/dev/null 
/dev/md0: File exists 
/dev/md1: File exists 
/dev/md2: File exists 
/dev/md3: File exists 
[root@cordelia]init.d> echo $? 
This error gave me quite a scare. 
Thank you.

There is no reason to fear the error message. But it's more elegant if the init
scripts check if the md is running or not.
Try this patch and see if it makes you happy.
