GigaRAID - ATA RAID Controller on Fedora Core 4


Hi,

I have just purchased a new drive. As I currently have two working drives I am using the third drive on my IDE3 but I am experiencing some problems with the RAID controllers.

Whether the problems I am experiencing are related or not I am not sure, but some guidance would be greatly appreciated:

I have added my new drive to the RAID settings in the BOIS as RAID Type "Normal". When I boot the drive is found but I receive two errors on the boot loader that I never had before:

[mntent]: line 9 in /etc/fstab is bad

I also get the same error when I umount from the GUI:
"Called: umount /dev/hdf14
[mntent]: line 9 in /etc/fstab is bad
umount: /dev/hdf14 is not in the fstab (and you are not root)

This is my fstab:

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/var/media /var/media ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL= * 'button1-mot swap swap defaults 0 0 (LINE 9)
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder1 auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

The second error is smartd failed. No idea what this is about but my smard.comf is:
/dev/hda -H -m root@localhost.localdomain
/dev/hdb -H -m root@localhost.localdomain
/dev/hdf -H -m root@localhost.localdomain

hda is my fedora drive, hdb is my 2 drive which sits on var/media and hdf is the third drive.

When I log on the startx I can mount the partitions on my third drive but I cannot umount them. All I want to do is format the hdf drive so it has only 1 partition (max capacity) and have it running from boot, so I don't have to mount it every time.

I haven't installed any drivers/controllers or make changes to the kernel. Do I have to do this?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

well yes.. line 9 IS bad... it's gibberish really. a star? an open quote mark? it doesn't make sense at all.

Hi,

I dont know where this entry came from, it wasn't there before I added the drive to the controller in the bois. Should I just delete it?

Also, why has the smartd failed and how do I fix this?

I've deleted LABEL= * 'button1-mot swap swap defaults 0 0 from the fstab so that error stops now. I still don't get the smartd problem. Any suggestions?
