Yes, could be related but also is a slightly more complicated setup as the imsm container is used (fakeRAID with some support in the BIOS from Intel).
Tried to reproduce in a VM but without success, yet. Though one "interesting" note is that "mdadm --misc --scan --detail" would somehow report a metadata version of 01.02 (instead of 1.2) which when added to /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf causes mdadm to complain about an unknown format (though the array still gets assembled). Can we get the output of "mdadm --misc --scan --detail" for the working and non-working kernel and the contents of /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1209423 Title: [STAGING] 2.6.32-47 kernel update on 10.04 breaks software RAID at boot Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: After update from 2.6.32-46 to 2.6.32-47 one of the md arrays does not start anymore at boot time. The RAID 1 md0 now causes message "Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" at boot. I used "S" to create this report as requested in a similar bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1190295) by user "penalvch" Booting back into 2.6.32-46 the md devices are correctly set up and the system boots normally. See the linked bug for further details, such as: The array that does not start anymore has the following config: level=raid1 metadata=1.2 num-devices=2 While a second array with metadata=1.0 seems to be recognized and started correctly.
