Description dizzey 2005-04-05 15:43:20 UTC
if i do a install to a md software raid with the 2005.0 stage3 stage file,
i cant boot becus the md devices nodes are missing from the " /lib/udev-state/devices.tar.bz2" file 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

soulotion that works boot the system and anter root pw when it complains about 
the root filesystem. remount filesystem to rw. do a MAKEDEV md in /dev use tar 
to make a new file to replace /lib/udev-state/devices.tar.bz2 sync  remount to 
ro and reboot.

Those files are not there on purpose.  The udev tarball is designed only for drivers that are not sysfs-aware and should not contain any files required for boot.  I am willing to bet that your raid configuration is the issue.  Did you use auto-config or are you using a raidtab file?

I'll close this as NEEDINFO, as the reporter does not answer.

dizzey: Please reopen if you finaly provide the information.
