Support Linux RAID devices #31
Hello. Thanks for petitboot! I am using on my ASUS D16 mainboard. I have not been able to make petitboot find anything on my RAID devices. I installed through Debian 8.9 and have tried both RAID1 with a LVM on containing the / system. I have also tried a RAID1 partition with a ext4 /boot partition on. When installing it again and creating a /boot that is primary ext4 partition, it does find the partition and can boot from it. However, having RAID booting working would be nice. Is this a feature enhancement request, or is it a bug that it does not work for?
Hi @jas4711. This should work - LVM support was added only very recently but RAID support has been around for a while. This may depend a bit on how you are building Petitboot however. You can see here that when building with Buildroot we add in some extra udev rules to make sure RAID devices are recognised correctly.
