How does Slackware notify you about a RAID1 (software) failure?
 
I was experimenting in virtual machines this evening with software RAID. I found Slackware's method straightforward and intelligible. The README is excellent. I found software RAID setup in Scientific Linux (RH Enterprise clone) and Debian convoluted and confusing.
My only question regarding software RAID in Slackware is how the system notifies you about the failure of one component. I pulled one of the virtual disks offline to deliberately fail the array but I wasn't notified when rebooting. I didn't look too deeply into log files to be honest. Can it be set to automatically notify the admin about a failure?

Check out mdadm --monitor for email notification of a RAID failure.

I use this

http://connie.slackware.com/~mrgoblin/files/rc.mdadm

Which assumes you have /etc/mdadm.conf set up correctly

http://connie.slackware.com/~mrgobli...ackware-12.php might have some helpful info
