[RE]LVM + dmraid

BusyBox v1.01 (Debian 1:1.01-4ubuntu3) Built-in shell (ash)
< snip..>

Hi Dave,
Looks like they are using busybox in the initial ramdisk. It provides some basic shell commands such as mount with a small memory requirement (commands are all static linked in). I suspect you are having problems with the busybox not supporting mounting of your type of raid.

The fix would be to not use the internal busybox mount command but include your own mount command (statically linked so the file will be large) into the inital ramdisk and use that instead.

For example I noticed that Fedora Core 5 uses busybox in anaconda initial installer and that mount command doesn't work with "UUID=" type mounts. Redhat nash (similar to busybox) that is installed for the normal boot does support the UUID= for it's internal mount command.
Hope this points you in the right direction,
