(Boot issue) mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically

Hello,

i have a triple boot syzstem

Windows 7 Pro + on NVME
Devuan 4.0 and Ubuntu 20.04 on 1 SSD


when i installed Ubuntu (Devuan already on the SSD) i deleted the Swap file (that was only 1GB , maybe trough automatic partitioning) and made it bigger to around 8 GB (having 16G RAM)

and lately, when i boot Devuan,

am getting the error:

mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically
mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically
mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically
mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically
mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically
mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically
mdadm: no array found in config file or automatically

several times which delays boot sequence considerably.


could someone please help me to deactivate this mdadm thing?


thank you very much.

To turn off mdadm:

# update-rc.d mdadm defaults-disabled

or get rid of it:

apt purge mdadm
