This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can you add to the description of the problem? The title doesn't make much sense. FakeRAID does work with Ubuntu, having multiple controllers shouldn't matter. – ppetraki Nov 28 '11 at 22:33
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! – Marco Ceppi Jan 30 '12 at 23:01

You understand that fake raid offers no acceleration whatsoever over Linux's mdadm driven software RAID implementation right? The only time using fake raid makes sense is when you have to share that disk with Windows or another OS that doesn't understand Linux MD.
