I see! Well, it's apparently made it to into Jaunty, so that's good news. :)
I'm more interested in finding a solution to the problem, and learning more about the checksums. Is there some way I can begin investigating this issue myself? Unfortunately, I fear my aspirations shall run away with me, but any insight/starting information to fixing the problem would be welcome.Take a look at lib/format/ataraid/asr.h for the layout of the metadata. Hexedit it by hand and see if the rest of it appears to make sense. If it is just the checksum that is wrong, then correct it.
I'll see what I can gather. Just for reference (in case it's been missed) the checksum I receive (0xBAF vs. 0x805) and the checksum 'ml' received (0xF36 vs. 0x805) are different. Presumably it's just the table format, and not the contained metadata that is checksum'd?
By the way, I assume that your bios refuses to recognize the array either?
The RAID card is perfectly happy with the array. It's rather bizarre. I may see if I can install Windows on it when I have some time.
