If i don't have raid disks can i shut down dmraid device-mapper?

my centOS newly installed system loading dmraid modules on startup
I did remove all LVM/raid things from system installation menus and after installation too but dmraid is still there
and he says: no raid disks found

also I did modprobe -r dm_raid45 and it do remove it but only until next boot

I've add to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist string "blacklist dm-raid45" (it's file name with - not _)but it still loading on startup..

so my question is: how to remove this useless soft(or fake)raid thing from the system? from loading?

Is an extra line on bootup really that important to you? These things are loaded on boot to make the system more flexible and really aren't a drain on resources; you could do more harm than good digging deep enough to remove it that completely.

in that case it, of course, not necessary
but what flexible in the raid when there's no raid?

It allows you to use RAID disks without having to hand-edit your system configuration files beforehand. This is not a particularly easy thing to do. If you change your mind now, you'll probably have to undo all the work you did.
