Re: [suse-security] Waiting for device /dev/900 to appear

I think the problem depends on a) new mdtools or b) on not supported

For this purpose I use 2.4.x instead, even if this is the older kernel,
but I don't have enough experience in 2.6.x kernels with software raid.
thanks to Anders Johansson we figured out that
/dev/900 is my /dev/md0.
old-Kernel: 2.6.4-52-default (SuSe 9.1)
/dev/hda1 = boot
/dev/hda3 + /dev/hdb3 = /dev/md0 = / #(root)
After upgrading the Kernel with YOU to 2.6.5-7.--somthing
the box no longer boots.
the boot stops with the message: Waiting for device /dev/900.... not found !
I experienced the same problem just recently. Part of my setup:
/dev/md0 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/md1 /boot reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/md2 /home reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/md3 /srv reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/md4 /var reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
I booted with the 9.1 boot cd and went to the update system option and
accepted all of the default sections. Unfortunately I didn't pay attention to
what packages it had to install. After I did this I still had the 2.6.5-7.95
kernel (at least that's what YAST says) but it works with no problems.
I have no idea why this works... I'm just hoping that the info can help
someone get past this problem.
