Mint 20 XFCE installtion software raid mdadm issue report and work around.

Post by silvatech »

So odd issue I never had in mint 19. Boot up the flash drive for installation. I have to at that point install mdadm. (which be nice if just included as its not that large of files.).
Install the OS correctly. All sudden cannot log in. It just hangs forever then goes back to login screen. Come to find out that the installer wont install mdadm during installation like it use to with mint 19. (pretty sure it did as I have multiple software raid computers and never had this happen.

So for people who run into this and don't know how to fix this here are instructions below.

So current fix for this right now is to hit control alt f1 to access terminal.
login with your username and password
sudo apt update
sudo apt install mdadm
sudo reboot

Everything should be working now =).
