comment Mounting a raid1 device - no suitable drives found
@Hennes That was not my intention, but sdc1 might have become a spare when the resync failed. However, sdc1 does not currently appear at all in mdadm -D for the array that has sdd1.

@Adambean surely not, as they work very differently (dmraid relies on the BIOS RAID which is ultimately software too but works with a specific controller) and they also use completely different layouts and descriptors.

@Hennes assuming it is a "superblock not found", how can I recover from that? I still have the other "half" of the array, but resync failed, apparently due to some bad sectors in the free space.

@Adambean that is probably BIOS RAID, aka "fake RAID". Not pure software RAID.

Well, actually I guess the kernel md / raid drivers are more suited for the title of controller.

RAID controller? This is software RAID, so the controller is mdadm. dmraid is a totally different thing. The distro is Gentoo, but I don't see how that's relevant.
