Bootable RAID configurations lack a compilation environment for the driver, so it is necessary to put the compilation environment in the Binary driver in advance. However, open source is developed based on the existing system environment, so there is no need to adjust the compilation environment.
The binary driver applies only to a specific kernel. After the system is updated, the existing binary driver will no longer function, as the kernel was updated. As a result, the new kernel cannot be started and accessed.
Therefore, after a bootable RAID configuration is installed, you need to install the open source again to avoid the kernel failure caused by the OS update.
