Setting up a root software RAID level 1 with SuSE 10.1


Hi,

I want to set up a software RAID level 1 for my root filesystem on SuSE 10.1. At the moment, I have two partitions involved on /dev/md0: /dev/hda3 and /dev/hdc3. Since /dev/hda3 contains the original data, I temporarily marked it as "failed-disk" in /etc/raidtab. For the kernel, I have a separate boot partition, again on RAID (/dev/md1), on /dev/hda1 and /dev/hdc1. Again, I have temporarily marked /dev/hda1 as "failed-disk".

As bootloader, I am using LILO. I included the "raid1" kernel module into initrd. However, I cannot get my root partition on /dev/md0 to mount. Booting always stops at the message: "Waiting for device /dev7root to appear".

What exactly do I have to put into lilo.conf? What else could be wrong?

Regards,
Patrick
