Bug Description

Note:

This bug might already have a simple fix:
"Due to a typo the dm-raid4-5"
Check the link below.

After selecting the right option from Grub, Mint tries to warm up showing splash image and then fails giving this:

"Decompressing Linux ... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.
Loading, please wait...
modprobe: module dm-raid45 not found in modules.dep

"Due to a typo the dm-raid4-5" :

That link relates to an Ubuntu package - LMDE doesn't use any.
I assume you are talking about a LiveDVD/USB?

I already wrote:

  "Decompressing Linux ... Parsing ELF... done.
  Booting the kernel.

  modprobe: module dm-raid45 not found in modules.dep"

So, isn't it clear enough that Mint doesn't boot? I really don't know about
the typo itself but if you are a developer and you know what letters should
be incuded in a certain file, why don't you check it out?

Ubuntu is based on Debian and at least Ubuntu is a bit infamous by
including the same bugs year after year.

I downloaded the new LMDE RC and used Unetbootin's option to install the
live distro to hard drive. Giving that, the next step was to reboot. From
there I chose the Unetbootin option as guided. Then a Mint logo popped up.
Everything was fine but then came the above mentioned text:

  "Decompressing Linux ... Parsing ELF... done.
  Booting the kernel.
  Loading, please wait...
  modprobe: module dm-raid45 not found in modules.dep"

After that... nothing.

Of course I tried to figure it out how to deal with it but didn't find
anything. What I found was a bug related to the information my system gave
me, so I wanted to give you a hint where to start looking for the solution.
