1. Give the password for root maintenance like it says, verify that /dev/md0 exists. Does devfs use the same name or does devfsd need to make the symlink? It is quite some time since I used devfs(d) so I don't remember the nomenclature for md devices off the top of my head. Or perhaps some other devfs related problem? 2. Are the md partitions marked "autoraid" as partition type in the partition table ? If yes then the kernel can initialise the array, if not then you need to use the mdadm tools to initialise the array at boot, that might be why the mdadm init script is failing, because the config file is empty or invalid. 3. the failure of the mdadm script is causing the root fsck to fail for some reason? You might have checked some of these, I don't know that from reading your post and I haven't read your original post just voicing the concerns I saw from your most recent post. hamish -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
