this is perhaps the wrong mailing list but is this the case with software raid as well? although, i believe the software raid must be raid level 1.
I've a software raid1 on 2 SATA drives. I've LVM over the RAID
I've setup 2 md devices: /dev/md0 with /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 for /boot (non lvm) /dev/md1 with /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 for lvm
The /boot partition is xfs and 100Mbytes I've setup everything in lvm, even the swap and the root partition.
