Hi Mcalizo,

I've the same problem than you.
i got the same error message when running mkinitrd (no module raid0 found for kernel 2.6.9).

i've posted a new thread in redhat category, the title is : mkinitrd failed with message "no module raid0 found for kernel 2.6.9"

I got some answer there asking me to install modutils and compile the kernel with all the raid options. I havn't done any of that yet (just read this answer few minutes ago).

i've also found a thread on another forum with same kind of problem:

I've tried to apply the patch provided but it gave me an error...

Hope someone can help us.

raid0 not found solution


I have just found out that the cause of the error, it is like this during build insmod is looking for raid0.o, but when i take a look at my /lib/modules/2.6.x/kernel/drivers/md/ i found out that the compiled module is raid0.ko. So i just

cp raid0.ko raid0.o

And then try to

make bzImage
make module
make module_install
make install

make sure also that your .config looks like this:

# Multi-device support (RAID and LVM)
# CONFIG_MD_RAID10 is not set
# CONFIG_MD_RAID6 is not set
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_DM is not set
