I have a pair of IDE disks which have FreeBSD 4.9 installed on them on two
mirrored (raid1) raidframe partitions:
raid0 mounted as /
raid1 as /usr
Something went wrong with this installation as it hangs at the startup,
regardless whether one or both disks are present and I am not able to fix
it. More importantly, before I reinstall fresh the whole thing, I need to
save some data from the /usr partition.
I plugged a third disk in the system and installed on it a vanilla FreeBSD
5.2.1 kern-developer distribution. I created the config file for the raid
device, but whenever I try to create the raid device by using 'raidctl -C
/etc/raid0.conf' the system reboots with:
"Kernelized RAIDframe activated"
"RAIDFrame: protectedSectors is 64"
"Waiting for DAG engine to start"
"Panic: lockmgr: thread ... 'snip'"
Any ideas of what is wrong? This is brand new fresh install.
The config file and disklabels I used are follows:
1 2 0
64 1 1 1
headswitch: 0 # milliseconds
track-to-track seek: 0 # milliseconds
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
a: 491520 0 4.2BSD 0 0 0
b: 262144 491520 swap
c: 1670697 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part, don't
e: 917033 753664 raid
