Thanks, you saved me a lot of work :-), I don't have the hardware to
test dmraid :-(


Thanks for that link as well!

I really like dmraid. Since my catastrophe, all partitions are restored
and I
have had no other problems running openSuSE on dmraid-1.0.0rc14 and Archlinux
on dmraid-1.0.0rc15 in a dual boot configuration. I am willing to bet that the
entire problem was caused by the kernel update from 2.6.29 to 2.6.30 on
archlinux while dmraid-1.0.0rc15 was running because I think there were kernel
changes to handle the new dmraid raid node names between the two kernels. I'll
bet the kernels handled the node names in a different way and having booted
with 2.6.29 and then installing 2.6.30 shutting down, and then restarting
2.6.30 caused the chaos.

On 2.6.29 dmraid-1.0.0rc15 was rock solid. On 2.6.30 it has been rock
ever since. It was only when I shut down 2.6.29 after having installed 2.6.30
that the partitions vanished. That's just my swag (swinging wild ass guess) at
the cause.
