RAID5 degraded - system hangs

You are right again ...
I just have a short discussion about the controller with promise support:
It is a software Raid Controller and WebPAM (The Promise Raid software) is the interface for building/resync etc.
This interface has some advanced feature but at least you can use a Linux SW-Raid ... (the xor calculation for RAID5 is done by the server anyway).

Over all with the technical background I have to redesign my personal goals.

Sorry, but it seems that's not the case...

Supporting RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 10, the FastTrak TX4310
incorporates Promise's innovative new software RAID 5
solution ...
