      I'm seeing some strange behavior on my 3rd slug running SlugOSBE 5.2.

      blkid reports identical UUIDs for two partitions, okay, they're identical drives with the exact same size partitions.

      I used tune2fs -U random /dev/sda3 on the first and tune2fs -U date /dev/sdb3 on the second partition (on my Kubuntu 10.10 desktop, since there doesn't seem to be a tune2fs in ipkg or opkg). blkid -l reports new UUIDs for both partitions from the Kubuntu machine.

      When I plug the drives in to the slug, blkid reports the old UUIDs. Deleting /etc/blkid.tab and reboting gives me the same issue.

      Any thoughts?

      Answering my own question here. Apparently, and not well documented, RAID UUIDs are supposed to be identical.
