RAID not starting at boot on FC7-test3

Hello all. I've created a RAID5 array using mdadm, and the file /etc/mdadm.conf exists and contains all necessary information, but the RAID is not started at boot time. It starts with no problems if I run mdadm from the console.

I'm assuming that these lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit are supposed to start the RAID:

# RAID setup
update_boot_stage RCraid
if [ -f /etc/mdadm.conf ]; then
/sbin/mdadm -A -s --auto=yes

I copied and pasted these lines into a new script then ran it from the console, and the RAID array (/dev/md0) started as expected. I have no idea why it doesn't start at boot time. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm using Fedora 7, test 3 x86_64.

Any help is much appreciated.

The only reason to be running FC7-test3 is to report bugs. There are many reports of RAID issues at this point. If you don't find your particular problem, report it.

Ok, thanks for the links, I found what I needed in the RH bugzilla - it all works if SELinux is put into permissive mode.
