- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
The mdadm has detected a problem with one disc in the array. Why do you say that the disc seems fine? How did you check the disc from the live DVD? Show the commands you used.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
