I recently installed a dual-boot of Kubuntu with Windows 7, which are both installed on partitions on a non-RAID disc. Separate from this drive and purely for data storage, I have an NTFS formatted RAID 5 array so I can access it in both Linux and Windows. The array is managed by Intel's controller on the motherboard. Yesterday I installed dmraid (RC14, as RC15 wasn't working for me, and after some research it seems I'm not the only one) and am able to manually mount/access the array with no problems. (I read through the FakeRaidHowto
along with some various other sources, so I know about it.)
What I would like to do is set up my system so I don't have to 'dmraid -ay' and manually mount the array every time I boot up. I did step 10 of the fakeraidhowto under version 9.04 to add the dm-raid4-5 module into initramfs, and I've read up on adding an automatic mount entry to fstab (which I haven't done at this point). I'm still trying to figure out how to automatically substitute for the 'dmraid -ay' command.
What would be the best way to go about getting my array to mount automatically? Thanks in advance!
