switching to mkinitcpio causing kernel panic due to raid'
I have just switched from mkinitrd to mkinitcpio as support for it has been dropped in archlinux. I tried it a while back ago and had problems but thought it might just be a version bug so I have waited 5 months and decided today to switch to it as I was having other problems with the server as well.
Anyway, what happens is the server boots and receive a kernel panic as the raid array isnt being setup as it should.
It crashes after Attempting to create root device /dev/md0 in the "Loading root filesystem module... -e" part. The first error message says "ERROR: Failed to parse block device name for /dev/md0
It then says "ERROR: root fs cannot be detected. Try using the rootfstype kernel parameter". I have ofcourse tried this but it doesnt change anything.
It will then enter the Running Hook [raid] phase where it will start to configure and load md0 and then spit out an error sayíng "opeen failed - cannot start array /dev/md0"
It then goes to kinit but since it cant find the kernel it gives me a kernel panic.
Any suggestions on what to try?
