I have an AMD64 Gentoo (running
systemd) build with a RAID0 root and some other arrays (RAID1 boot, RAID1 home etc..). The boot process is being slowed down quite dramatically as
mdadm searches the arrays at boot (from the initramfs).
mdadm --detail --scan >> /etc/mdadm.conf
Removing info about metadata etc.. (as suggested elsewhere), and then telling Gentoo's genkernel to pull in the
mdadm.conf into the initramfs through
But it's still holding up the boot process. I have an alternate distro (Debian) installed on a separate partition which also runs systemd and which boots much quicker. Any ideas?
