    SubjectRe: Promise FastTrak boot freeze on 2.4.12/+ac3
    Date
    I have a promise Lite controller running in Raid1 mode using reiserfs
    booting with lilo and it seems to work really well
    Raid1 support was added in in 2.4.11 and 2.4.12 gives quite a few errors
    with the fs, but the 2.4.12-ac2 works fine

    Where did it get up to with you????
