Hey. This relates to a post I made in the Newbie forum (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...lation-638103/
), but I've refined the problem a little more now.
I have a SATA RAID5 array set up via my motherboard (Gigabyte nForce 570). After some reading it seems that the linux kernel is either bugged or simply doesn't support 'Fake RAID5'... At least that's from what I've read on the web for older versions. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 right now.
The individual drives and the RAID controller are detected in the gnome Device Manager, but cannot be mounted.
Soo, does anyone know what the deal is with Fake RAID5 and linux, specifically Ubuntu? and if there is a simple workaround? I've read that a recompilation of the kernel may be required, if so, has anyone got any good links to tutorials on recompiling to enable Fake RAID5?
