As I mentioned in my previous post, I am migrating all my machines to Gentoo Linux. Things are going smoothly, but unfortunately, I recently ran into a major technical snag in the implementation. I believe that I am having hardware problems, but I cannot be 100% certain. All I know is that when I try do the initial software RAID 1 sync, it fails with an error message. What is more annoying is that both drives pass all diagnostic tests. This means that something is broken, and that I cannot be certain exactly what. I have this to usenet with limited success. I have also sent messages to both the drive manufacturer, the MoBo manufacturer and the people who built the machine. So far no luck on a solution.
Anyone have any ideas about what could be going wrong?
