This got me booting - but it is strange! The initrd still says that it can't find any software raid devices, but now it CAN find the lvm volumes and it boots all the way. Once I log in I see that I have all my raid devices started, and all the right things are mounted. There is an issue however, that after it finds the lvm group and start booting, I get "rm - can't remove /sys/blah*" spewing across the screen for about 2 minutes, then it goes and boots just fine. Has anyone heard of these issues? I assume lvmraid option is new as I had this working without it previously. Perhaps Gentoo devs have changed the way all this works?
